Diversity and Education Program with Ehime University

About the Program


The Diversity and Education Program with Ehime University, is a short-term visiting program for 10 undergraduate students from Ehime University in Japan. During the 2-week program from March 3rd to March 17th, 2019, students will gain understanding of U.S. diversity and the U.S. education system. They will grow their leadership capacity, expand their English language skills, and become acquainted with people and places of interest in Seattle. Participants will take English classes during many of the mornings, followed by site visits to schools and organizations, cultural excursions, communication workshops, and more.

Get Involved

UW Students can get involved in the Ehime program by applying to be a Japan Programs Ambassador. Ambassadors are a critical piece of the program and act as peer mentors, cultural liaisons, friends and student leaders. Ambassadors learn new skills, build their resume, make international friends and have fun! Applications are due Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 (NOTE UPDATED DEADLINE).

If you have questions about the Ambassador program, please contact FIUTS Education Programs Coordinator, Kailyn Swarthout, at kailyn@fiuts.org.

Community Members are invited to host one or more Ehime participants from March 3rd through March 17th. The Homestay is an important opportunity for participants to learn about U.S. culture and connect with local people. Please contact samantha@fiuts.org for information about hosting an Ehime participant.
