ICC is an international community created by students, for students.
There are currently over 5,000 international students from over 100 courtiers and regions enrolled at Waseda University, and over 4,000 Japanese Students from Waseda participate in study abroad programs every year.
ICC was established to make utmost use of this international environment and to further enhance the cross-cultural interactions on campus.
ICC aims to bring forth new values and cultures while deepening cross-cultural understanding through active interactions among students, crossing the boundaries of nations, nationalities and cultures.
It starts with you, here, now
The Waseda University Hirayama Ikuo Volunteer Center (WAVOC) was founded in April 2002 as an affiliate of Waseda University.
To enhance Waseda University’s contribution to society, WAVOC volunteer activities are developed and run under the three philosophies: “linking the university to society,” “offering diverse opportunities for experience,” and “encouraging students to contribute to society.”
“What was I able to do to contribute to society?” “What did I learn through my experience?” Students who have taken courses on volunteering or participated in volunteer projects gain valuable experiences that allow them to answer these questions. Enriched by their experience, they can thrive as active members of society after graduation.
Creating new opportunities for human interaction by linking resources at WASEDA and in society
What types of off-campus collaboration should a university focus on in an era of constant change?
Development of University-Social Relations Liaison Office thinks that the answer is in the ties between people.
We believe that creating opportunities for a diverse range of human interaction built around education—the core of the university—and seeking possibilities free from conventional ideas will generate new values not only at our university but also in society.
Waseda will continue to make use of its resources to create new ties with society, and strive to be an institution valued by the society.
