International GP by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport, Science, and Technology

In 2005, Japan Women’s University submitted a proposal to promote liaison with Asian countries in the field of women’s higher education under the Internationalization Promotion Program in University Education (Strategic International Liaison Support) 2005, which had been publicly tendered by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport, Science, and Technology; our proposal was adopted. Out of a total of 104 schools that applied, fifteen had their proposals adopted.

Program name: Higher Education and Empowerment of Women in Asia

Subtitle: Liaison Program for Restructuring and Development of Networks for Higher Education Institution for Women in Asia.

This program aims to develop internationalization in higher education through supporting exceptional initiatives in cooperation with overseas universities against the growing trend of globalization as well as internationalization in higher education.

Japan Women’s University has been involved in various kinds of international exchange ever since its foundation. In addition to the conventions of exchange we have signed with a number of universities, including Wellesley College, we are implementing the following programs:


(1) support for women’s education in Afghanistan as a member of the Five Women’s University Consortium;


(2) support for women’s education in Saudi Arabia;


(3) education hub system for home economics education in Asia;


(4) joint research in lifelong with China Women’s University and Ewha Womans University, Seoul; and


(5) supporting female researchers and instructors in Vietnam. It seems that our application was successful partly due to the high regard of these programs and the expectation for the development of future liaison programs.
