Building Friendship Between Moravian College and Osaka Ohtani University through InFocus Global Seminars 

With support from the Japan-US Friendship Commission, Moravian College will continue to deepen the long standing relationship between Moravian College and Osaka Ohtani University. As sister universities, Osaka Ohtani has sent students to Moravian for nearly twenty years. In May 2017, the first InFocus Global Seminar to Japan took a group of Moravian students to Osaka Ohtani in Tondabayashi, Japan. Through the support from the JUSFC, Moravian is able to further develop and support this exchange by including a study trip to Washington, DC, for students from Osaka Ohtani and Moravian during the annual student visit, as well as providing reduced cost for Moravian students to participate in the InFocus Global Seminar to Japan in May. In addition, the support from the JUSFC will enable Moravian to host Japanese scholars for short-term residencies.
