This month, Arizona State University and Global Launch celebrated a 30-year partnership with Hiroshima Shudo University (HSU) by welcoming a new cohort of Japanese students.

Through their study abroad programs, HSU strives to respond to social needs by expanding its international links with overseas universities and promoting student exchange partnerships with 31 universities in 14 different countries and regions. Since 1998, Global Launch has served more than 650 students from Hiroshima Shudo on the Tempe campus.

Each year, students from Japan travel to ASU to study English at Global Launch and learn about American culture in a four-week intensive English program setting. Participants in the program will attend language training sessions, academic success activities, community events around the state, and Arizona cultural activities to help students practice their English.

“This is going to be an exciting and busy 4 weeks. Hiroshima Shudo students have a reputation in our program of being very dedicated and hardworking, and we couldn’t be more excited to continue this partnership,” said Dianna Lippincott, Global Launch’s strategic innovation manager.
