Center's Outline

■Message from the Director
 Akira Deguchi

deguchi sensei.jpg The Center for International Exchanges, succeeding to the achievements of the former Center for International Students established in 1998, has been promoting the international exchange projects in cooperation with many other people concerned since 2007.  After the establishment of our Center, however, the social situation surrounding was dramatically changed due to the economic impacts such as super-strong yen or Lehman’s fall, or the natural disaster of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Nevertheless, the number of foreign students who study at Shimane University is increasing currently and the number of the students who study abroad is also gradually on the increase.
 Based on the spirit of Shimane University’s Charter, we aim to foster the students who can contribute to the global society actively not only by providing the global-standard classes with them, but also by promoting the following activities, cooperating with the foreign partner universities and the local communities:

(1) Making strategic networks with a group of advanced foreign universities in the fields
     of education and research valuable to Shimane University
(2) Increasing the number of researchers and students studying abroad
(3) Enhancement of the support system for foreign researchers and students

 I hope that the students at Shimane University as well as foreign students from other universities will be very familiar with our activities and make use of the Center easily.  I also hope that the staff members of the University will understand the roles of the Center and cooperate with us.
