In 1989 the International Exchange Center was set up at Meiji University in order to support international activities such as academic exchanges, accepting overseas students and sending Meiji University students to universities in other countries. The Organization for International Collaboration was set up in October 2009 with the aim of further promoting and hastening the spread of internationalization, and making a greater international contribution through increasingly high levels of education and research.
The Organization for International Collaboration consists of three separate sections: the Headquarters of International Collaboration, the International Student Exchange Center, and the Japanese Language Education Center.
Each of these bodies is linked to various institutions within the University, and through such collaborations they are expanding internationalization at the University.
Headquarters of International Collaboration
The Headquarters of International Collaboration decides on policies concerning the promotion of internationalization at Meiji University. It is involved in activities such as planning, promoting links with higher educational institutions in other countries, promoting the University as an international base and organizing international conferences, etc.
International Student Exchange Center
The International Student Exchange Center promotes international education by supporting international exchange of students from other countries and in turn, sending Meiji students on exchanges to foreign countries.
Japanese Language Education Center
The Japanese Language Education Center promotes international educational exchange by carrying out Japanese language education and research for overseas students during their stay at Meiji University.
