Delegation led by the President of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf Visits Doshisha

Updated Jun. 7, 2012
On April 6, four members of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, including President H. Michael Piper, Vice President for Research and Innovation, Lutz Schmitt, Vice President for Academic Management and International Relations, Axel Buchner, and Director of the International Office, Ann Gellert, visited Doshisha University to attend a signing ceremony of a student exchange agreement. Attending from Doshisha University were President Eiji Htta, Vice President and Dean of the Organization for Promotion of International Cooperation, Masaaki Tatsuki, Director of the International Center, Nobuyuki Yamauchi, and Administrative Director of the Organization for Promotion of International Cooperation, Toru Nishioka.

The student exchange program is not the first joint initiative between the two educational institutions. Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, which was established in 1965, concluded an academic exchange agreement with Doshisha University in 2011 after Doshisha’s President and the Director of the Strategic Planning and Public Relations Division visited Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf in 2010.

Following the ceremony, a cordial discussion took place between officials from the two universities. Both universities expect that the agreement will encourage further education and research, and promote more international exchanges. The day ended with a dinner hosted by President Hatta.
