After several busy years of preparation, we were delighted to open our doors to ISAK’s first class of students in August. To commemorate this history-making occasion, we held a formal Opening Ceremony on the ISAK campus on Aug. 24, with more than 150 guests in attendance. Dignitaries at the event included Japan’s Minister of Education Mr. Hakubun Shimomura and Mr. Shuichi Abe, the governor of Nagano Prefecture.
The Opening Ceremony, which included a speech by Education Minister Shimomura and panel discussions featuring six incoming students, received wide media coverage in Japan. Please see the link below for more details about ISAK’s grand opening.
