We have been holding an international student-led symposium (ISACE) every year around March, but as in the past year, it has become difficult to hold events or domestic study tours in Corona. Therefore, we are envisioning an event focused on the international student education program itself, with a focus on faculty members. Specifically, the event is expected to include (1) regular reviews of the MEXT program, (2) reviews of the international student education programs of the majors, (3) opportunities for international students to participate in activities, and (4) reports on the activities of the international student alumni association.
