To further enhance its attractiveness on the world stage, Waseda University has been implementing bold reforms for internationalization, which include the expansion of English-based degree programs to seven undergraduate and 14 graduate schools, and facilities catered to international students such as the Intercultural Communication Center (ICC) and the Waseda International Student House (WISH). The University takes great pride in the culturally dynamic and intellectually stimulating community that is being created. Furthermore, Waseda not only celebrates cultural and ethnic diversity but is also committed to the inclusivity of all of its members, regardless of their religious beliefs, gender identity, and all other characteristics that shape people into who they are.

It also features an interview with Francis Therese Calalang, a Waseda student who shares her educational experience. To read the entire article, click on the image or the link below.
