Long serving JICUF trustees Delores Roeder and Samuel Shepherd officially retired from the board of trustees on March 31, 2019. New trustees Machi Fukuyama Dilworth and Katherine Tegtmeyer Pak joined the board on April 1.
In late October, JICUF Executive Director Paul Hastings and Chair of the Board of Trustees Sam Shepherd visited ICU. They spent much of their time with President Junko Hibiya and the newly appointed Vice President for International Academic Exchange Mark Williams. They also met with several other members of the administration and staff, faculty and students receiving support from JICUF. Here are reports of the visit from Paul and Sam.
