Kazuko Suematsu, the Deputy Director of Tohoku University’s Global Learning Center, also shared, “I have seen many different online programs since the outbreak of COVID-19 but not like this. Thanks to the open-mindedness and also extensive resources of UNC Charlotte, the program turned out to be a great success with overwhelmingly positive feedback from Tohoku participants.”
