VP Diary

Dear Colleagues,
This is the first “VP Diary.” Isn’t it a coincidence that “Diary” and 「便り」 sound similar? From now on, I intend to present this diary at frequent intervals, as a way to tell you what I have been doing and as a way to give you a little exposure to the English language on this website.
First, a summary of the first half of this year:
* March (when not yet VP): visit UK to discuss overseas partnerships with six universities and colleges; participate in Kyorin Global Symposium; accompany Kyorin student group to Australian and Canadian embassies
* April: Take up post of VP; propose entrance exam reforms; propose unification of two Hachioji faculties; request introduction of more classes given in English; request preparation of a programme of Japanese language for foreign students 
* April-July: Attend President’s freshman lunches; receive guests from UK, US, Brazil, etc.; meet prospective faculty members  学長の新入生昼食会に参加
* May: attend NAFSA conference for overseas educators at St. Louis, USA; hold discussions on new curriculum 
* June: Appointed Professor Emeritus, Waseda University; participate in Open Campus
* July: Keynote speech at an academic conference; attend JAFSA conference for overseas educators in Japan; participate in Open Campus; begin informal lunches for faculty members
* August: Visit Australia to discuss overseas partnerships with eight universities
* September: Visit Cebu, Philippines to discuss overseas cooperation with three universities and one provider of intensive online English training
* October: continue discussions on new curriculum
* Plans for November & December: participate in COC / CCRC events; prepare cooperation agreements with overseas institutions; complete discussions on new curriculum and reach a conclusion on introducing it in time for moving to the new Inokashira Campus
Next time recent activities in more detail. Thank you for your attention!
