Delegation Led by the President of the University of Bergen Visits Doshisha

Updated Apr. 27, 2012
On April 19, three members of the University of Bergen in Norway, including Rector Sigmund Grønmo, Toril Ivarsøy (International Coordinator, Faculty of Humanities) and Jan Bjarne Mo (Senior Executive Officer, Section for Internationalization of Education, Division of Student Affairs), visited Doshisha University. A signing ceremony for an academic exchange agreement and a student exchange agreement took place between the University of Bergen and Doshisha University. Attending the ceremony from Doshisha University were President Eiji Hatta, Vice President and Dean of the Organization for the Promotion of International Cooperation, Masaaki Tatsuki, Director of the International Center, Nobuyuki Yamauchi, Dean of The Institute for the Liberal Arts, Gregory Poole, and Administrative Director of the Organization for the Promotion of International Cooperation, Toru Nishioka.

The University of Bergen has a long history of academic activities, established as the Bergen Museum from 1825 and subsequently developing into a university in 1946. It is a highly respected university for both its education and research and is well known for being an establishment that actively engages in international cooperation with foreign universities and research institutions. The University of Bergen is the second Norwegian university to become Doshisha’s partner through the signing of the academic exchange agreement, and the first with the signing of the student exchange agreement.

At the meeting following the signing ceremony, the attendees actively exchanged opinions regarding the building of future exchange relations between both universities. After that, a luncheon organized by the president of Doshisha University was held.

We hope the visit will further promote exchange between the two universities.
