In April, the ICU Graduate School launched the Diplomacy and International Public Service Program (DIPS). DIPS targets ICU graduate students and students in the Five-year Program who are interested in pursuing careers in diplomacy or international organizations. A kick-off event was held on the ICU campus on Saturday, April 20th.
Ms. Noriko Iwase, who graduated from ICU in 1974, currently lives in Washington, D.C. After a long career at the United Nations and World Bank, she decided to pursue a different path. A generous supporter of JICUF and ICU, she shared her ICU story with us.
Ms. Hiroko Morita-Lou graduated from ICU in 1977. Having recently retired from her long career at the United Nations, she is busy giving lectures, writing, and advising students in both the U.S. and Japan. She currently resides in Connecticut. We asked her to look back at her time at ICU.
