March 14, 2017

Carleton University has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Tokyo’s Waseda University that aims to provide more international study opportunities for students and research opportunities for faculty at both schools. A Carleton release states that it and Waseda are committed to global engagement through enhanced international mobility and research collaboration, as well as training programs for professionals like those at Carleton’s Global Academy. “As a capital city university with aspirations to use our Ottawa location as a global gateway, Carleton is especially well positioned to deepen academic, research and professional partnerships in Japan,” said Carleton Provost and Vice-President (Academic) Peter Ricketts. “We have approximately 250 students a year enrolled in Japanese language studies and dozens of faculty engaged in research with Japanese partners.” Carleton
