These colleges and universities are recognized as among the leading educational institutions in their respective societies. Waseda University has about 45,000 students; the combined student body of students who attend GLCA and ACM member institutions is about 42,500. Japan Study has made important contributions toward fostering the growth of international and intercultural understanding among a significant number of Japanese and American students and faculty. Participants have gone on to distinguished careers in academics, industry, and governmental and non-governmental organizations. They play important roles in a wide range of settings linking Japan, the United States, and the rest of the world.
