The University of Tokyo attaches great importance to global education and encourages students to study abroad and participate in international activities. This time, we are planning an exciting event with Professor John L. Hennessy, President Emeritus Stanford University and Director of Knight-Hennessy Scholars and current chairperson of Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google, who will be visiting the University of Tokyo.

At the event, President Emeritus Hennessy will introduce "Knight-Hennessy Scholars" at Stanford University, a scholarship program that cultivates and supports a multidisciplinary and multicultural community of graduate students from across Stanford University. He will also discuss with President Teruo Fujii about the importance of doing study abroad for young students of all disciplines, by sharing accounts from his career as a leading scholar and higher education leader.

This will be a relaxed "dialogue session" between President Emeritus Hennessy and President Fujii, moderated by Professor Yujin Yaguchi. Come join this informative, meaningful, and inspiring event for all of UTokyo students!

*"Knight-Hennessy Scholars" at Stanford University is a multidisciplinary, multicultural graduate scholarship program. Each Knight-Hennessy scholar receives up to three years of financial support to pursue graduate studies at Stanford while participating in engaging experiences that prepare scholars to be visionary, courageous, and collaborative leaders who address complex challenges facing the world.
