Lakeland College Japan spotlighted in international magazine
Academics - posted on 10/10/2006
Lakeland College's two-year campus in Tokyo, Japan, is the subject of an article in the fall issue of IIENetworker: The International Education Magazine.
Each issue, the magazine spotlights a branch campus, and Lakeland College Japan (LCJ) is featured in the fall 2006 issue.
IIENetworker is a bi-annual print magazine published by the Institute of International Education, an independent non-profit organization founded in 1919 that administers over 200 programs serving more than 20,000 individuals each year.
The magazine publishes pieces on all aspects of international education around the world and features new research, as well as resources and articles that deal with everyday practice.
The article traces Lakeland's history in Japan, and notes that last December the Japanese education ministry officially recognized LCJ as a "Foreign University, Japan Campus," the first American private college to receive such recognition for an undergraduate program. That status allows students to transfer LCJ credits to Japanese universities.
Lakeland, which formed its Tokyo campus in 1990, joins Temple University as the only two American schools offering undergraduate education in Japan.
