About the APU GLAD Program

The APU GLAD (Global Learning for sustAinable Development) Program is designed to offer 1st - 2nd semester students (domestic and international) an opportunity to understand global issues as global citizens and search for solutions through online lectures by guest speakers and group work. The focal areas of learning in this program are as follows:

1) Learn several frameworks for perceiving the world as a global citizen.
2) Learn methods to actualize and make contributions to the world, not limited to words.
3) Learn what students must learn about on the university campus and through overseas studies.
4) Learn effective communication skills in Japanese and English through online group work.

This program was developed to provide opportunities for multicultural collaborative learning utilizing APU’s multicultural, multilingual, multinational campus environment even under circumstances where students cannot physically come to campus. Due to the impact of the novel coronavirus, Off-campus Study Programs have been cancelled for the Spring Semester but we hope that students interested in collaborative learning with other students of diverse backgrounds will participate in this program.
