Hot off the Press: Fukushima Ambassador’s Program

Japan Ambassador's Program

Program Information

Several years have passed since March 11, 2011 yet the impact of the Fukushima disasters continues to affect those living in the prefecture. Thousands of citizens remain without a permanent home or a stable source of income, and concerns, often unsubstantiated, about radioactive contamination continue to bedevil small businesses and industry within the prefecture. The Fukushima Ambassadors Program is an opportunity for students to see, hear, and reflect objectively upon the challenges faced in Fukushima today. By implementing a community-service based, hands-on approach to learning, the program helps students evaluate any misconceptions they may have about post-3/11 Fukushima, and become, if they wish, an agent for its recovery after their return.

Freshmen are eligible to apply.

Established in March 2015, Project MyStory is a community building effort to help students better acclimate to UAlbany and to work more effectively toward their goals. We began in UAlbany’s Academic Support Center (ASC), where you will see many of the posters featured above. We are now co-housed in ASC and in the Center for International Education and Global Strategy (CIEGS).
