Public Relations

The Institute for International Collaboration (IIC) is the best source for up-to-date and accurate information about Hokkaido University if you require it in English. Our office works with faculty, staff, and students to inform them about what is happening at Hokkaido University. Members of the IIC serve as liaisons for the publicity of the school. Services include communicating to a variety of audiences through various media, writing and producing all foreign language publications (including the Hokkaido University Magazine and the Hokkaido University Guidebook), and creating and overseeing content for the university’s English website. In addition to this, members of the IIC also attend overseas recruitment fairs, and maintain an online presence through social media networks.

Reporters looking for comments about institutional matters are invited to contact the Deputy Director of the IIC, So Kawanobe, at pr[at] Students, faculty, alumni, and staff who need assistance with publicizing events and initiatives with the international student body should also contact the Global Relations Office at the email address above. This email address is also the point of contact for those who have questions about Hokkaido University’s English website and style guidelines.

Questions concerning Recruitment Fair attendance should be directed to recruit[at]
