Mariko Akuzawa, Ph.D., professor at the Graduate School for Creative Cities in Osaka University, and Dr. Oum Changjoon, principal of Korea International School (KIS) in Osaka, Japan, visited Miriam College last March 23 to discuss a one-week study tour/exposure at the MCHS for their students and faculty.;
Initially established as a non-profit organization in 2009 and accredited as an educational organization in 2011, Korea International School (KIS) seeks to form students as multi-culturally sensitive, creative human beings who value peace and human rights. At present, KIS in Japan has international programs with schools in Korea and Canada. In line with strengthening KIS’s vision of producing competent and empowered students in a global community, it sought a meeting with Miriam College after being referred by the Women and Gender Institute’s (WAGI) networks in Japan.
