      Current college admission reforms are a significant process enhancing high school and university connections as well as developing overall quality of university education in Japan. Recently, universities have been required to shift their college admissions practices to a holistic review approach, which assesses not only academic achievements, but also students’ backgrounds, personal experience and potential.  Reforming college admissions raises questions about how college education itself can be reformed in response to changing admissions practices.

      This seminar with a researcher from the U.S., Prof. Susan Albertine, offers the audience an opportunity for those involved with college admissions and education to sit together, discuss, and find collaborative solutions to reforming college admissions and education.
