Ambassador Kennedy speaking at EducationUSA EXPOThe Office of International Education for the Peralta Community College District – Berkeley City College, College of Alameda and Laney and Merritt Colleges in Oakland – was selected to participate in the U.S. Department of State’s EducationUSA Expo, which took place in Tokyo, Japan, last month.

Drew Gephart, Peralta’s Designated School Official, attended the Expo on behalf of the Peralta Colleges, and connected with Japanese educational institutions and promoted the Peralta Colleges’ programs to prospective international students.

EducationUSA is a global network of advising centers supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, and assists in connecting U.S. institutions of higher education with partner colleges and universities around the world.

Gephart also attended a reception to network with Japanese counterparts and met the United States Ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy (pictured at the Expo), at her residence in Tokyo. Ambassador Kennedy has launched the TeamUp campaign, which aims to increase student mobility by promoting strategic partnerships between U.S. and Japanese colleges and universities.

“Peralta’s Office of International Education looks forward to expanding the educational exchange between the U.S. and Japan by working closely with the U.S. Embassy, U.S. Department of State and the EducationUSA centers in Japan,” said Sean R. Brooke, Director of International Education for the Peralta Colleges.

The United States Embassy in Tokyo hosted the Expo in cooperation with the Japan Network for International Education, and the Expo featured a reception, college fair and information seminars for institutions and prospective students. The U.S. Embassy provided the Peralta Colleges the opportunity to attend the free Expo to promote their colleges as a premier destination for Japanese students interested in international education.
