West Virginia and Japan are not far away apart. Japanese Outreach encourages Marshall University, communities, and the Japanese businesses in West Virginia to come together and raise the awareness of culture differences.
Akiko Praylow, our Japanese Outreach Coordinator ambasses three key areas:
- West Virginia International School – Teach Japanese students who temporary live in West Virginia to help maintain education level during the stay in the state and assist smooth transition from Japan to West Virginia.
- Economic Development – Strengthen the engagement level between Marshall University and the Japanese businesses in West Virginia and create a collaborative business environment that a business ecosystem is generated.
- Cultural Outreach – Demonstrate appreciation to different culture through highly engaged activities and raise recognition of cultural aspects of diversity within the communities.
Akiko graduated from Marshall University in 2004. After working at a Japanese company in West Virginia extensively, she came back to Marshall University as a Japanese Outreach Coordinator. With a passion to dedicate to Marshall University and Huntington, she dives even deeper into the community and extend the network wider. For more information, contact email@example.com.
