One of our Japanese exchange partners, Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU) has approached Queen's to be part of a collaborative learning project that aims to help students gain a deeper understanding of relations between Canada and Japan. The project is to establish a Cross-Cultural College (CCC) for students from KGU and the Canadian partner universities (Queen's, Mount Allison University and University of Toronto) to study and compare contemporary issues in Canada and Japan intensively in small groups in a cross-cultural context. As a start-up to the development of the Cross-Cultural College, KGU will offer a Joint Seminar Pilot Program on "Issues in Contemporary Canadian and Japanese Society" in which 8 students from KGU and 8 students from the Canadian partner universities will be selected to participate. This Pilot Program will be taking place on the Queen's University campus during Reading Week (19-25 February 2012) and Queen's has been allotted 4 spaces in the program.
