UW Japan Outreach Initiative


The Japan Outreach Initiative (JOI) is now partnering with the University of Wyoming.

The JOI Program aims to promote awareness and understanding of Japan in areas with relatively few Japan-related activities and opportunities for exchange. The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership jointly administers JOI with the Laurasian Institution.

This two-year program provides a JOI coordinator an opportunity to engage their American community in Japanese-theme programming. Our coordinator here at UW is Yuki Ayukawa. To connect with Yuki and learn about her JOI programming, explore below or email Yuki at
