Boise State launches exchange program with Japanese university

Boise State has partnered with a Japanese university to extend exchange study opportunities for students. Boise State currently has more than 50 international cooperative agreements around the world.

Chukyo University in Nagoya, Japan, and Boise State University signed a “Student Exchange Agreement,” which provides a low-cost option for Boise State students to study in Nagoya. The two institutions will exchange up to three students annually beginning in fall 2013. The agreement will be a pilot agreement for the first year.

Chukyo University has formal exchange agreements with seven other partners in the United States, including California State University at Chico, Clemson University, Kennesaw State University, Marshall University, University of Massachusetts at Boston, University of Southern California and Western Carolina University.

A recent Boise State delegation to Japan included Parrett, Lisa Kinnaman, Roger Quarles and Tetsuya Ehara (also representing the Department of World Languages). The Center for School Improvement and Policy Studies will work with Chukyo to develop future exchange activity with current center projects and initiatives.
