What is Global Link


Global Link is discovery, exploration and connection.

Through Global Link, undergraduate students from ICU and select partner institutions in Asia are given an opportunity to participate in immersive short-term international programs.

Launched in 2014, Global Link New York is a selective, one-month summer program in New York City for students of International Christian University (ICU) in Tokyo, Japan. The program’s main objective is to expose students to globally oriented careers and inspire them to reflect not only on their professional potential, but also on their personal attitudes and identities in an increasingly interconnected world.

In 2018, Global Link China will be launched. Global Link China is a two-week research trip that will take place annually in early March. Currently open only to ICU undergraduates, Global Link China is led by ICU Professor Stephen Nagy. The aim of the program is to expose ICU students to the complex realities of Sino-Japanese relations, and to give them an opportunity to explore a research question. Learn more about Global Link China
