On May 24th 2019, President Juozas Augutis from Vytautas Magnus University (VMU) in Lithuania and his colleagues visited the Higashi-Hiroshima Campus of Hiroshima University (HU) and met with President Mitsuo Ochi and Vice President Yasushi Maruyama (in charge of International Exchange). In addition to having a meeting, they visited and observed the Hiroshima University Museum.
So far, HU has steadily promoted cooperation with VMU by holding various programs and events such as START programs (short-term overseas study programs for our undergraduates) and Japanese speech contests held at VMU. In addition, HU has its Lithuania Center on the campus of VMU.
During the meeting, the participants had an active exchange of opinions about various issues such as future collaboration between the two universities. It is hoped that exchange with VMU will be further promoted.
