(June 27, 2018) Lecture Meeting "Bridge between India and Japan" Held by Mr. Shrikrishna Kulkarni, Chairman of the Board of Governors at the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta


The lecture meeting "Bridge between India and Japan" by Mr. Shrikrishna Kulkarni was held on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at the Conference Room on the 3rd floor of the Institute for Advanced Studies on Asia on the Hongo Campus. About 60 people including international students attended the event.

Besides being a great grandson of Indian National Father Mahatma Gandhi, Mr. Kulkarni is Chairman of the Board of Governors at the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta as well as President of the UTokyo Alumni Association of India.

His talk started with his dynamic life history including his unique experiences as an international student of UTokyo, such as practicing Shorinji-Kempo, working as CEO of Fanuc India and then Panasonic India, participating in the "Walk of Hope" through which he traversed India longitudinally on foot, etc. in English as well as fluent Japanese. He said most of the significant events of his life were decided by someone other than himself and that he accepted every one of them as it was. We were impressed that he had appreciated all that happened to him.

During the Q and A session, Mr. Kulkarni answered every question from the participants with a lot of humor and sincerity. His message "I can't give you any advice. Instead, I will only share my experiences." well expresses his humbleness.

After the whole session was over, many of the attendants lined up, waiting to ask Mr. Kulkarni personal questions face-to-face.

 

(June 15, 2018) UTokyo Alumni Association Supporters Starting to Play a Part

Since 2017, UTokyo alumni have voluntarily registered to the UTokyo Alumni Association as its supporters and the number has reached almost 50. Their ages range from early 20s to late 60s while their careers vary from lawyers, career civil servants, and business consultants, to those working for financial companies, advertising companies, general trading companies, and as school teachers. They have started to play an active role for current students of UTokyo by making use of their own careers at the events, including a lecture for job recruiting, mock job interviews and hosting freshmen at the welcome party.

The areas of activities in which UTokyo Alumni Association supporters play a part are gradually increasing, and we would therefore be grateful if you could apply for supporter status when we recruit new supporters online this fall.

(May 8, 2018) Welcome Party for Freshmen Held by the UTokyo Alumni Association
 

On Thursday, April 26, 2018, a Welcome Party for freshmen was held by the UTokyo Alumni Association on the Komaba Campus. A total of 180 people attended the event, including freshmen, alumni and faculty members.
Participating alumni include UTokyo Alumni Association supporters who range from lawyers, career civil servants, and business consultants, to those working for financial companies, advertising companies, general trading companies, school teachers, etc.

After speeches by the invited guests, including Atsushi Ishida, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences/Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, undergraduates who just entered the University this April went around to one table after another to talk with faculty members as well as alumni, thus gaining new experiences.

Some of the results of the questionnaire which was conducted afterwards are as follows:

* I was able to have a concrete image about what I should do for the first two years in Komaba.
* This event was quite helpful because I had opportunities to talk with faculty members and senior alumni as well as to be acquainted with other students.
