Office for International Collaboration

The Office for International Collaboration (OIC) is an office mainly for planning and implementing international strategies as an integral part of the “Future Strategy for the 150th Anniversary of Hokkaido University.” The OIC enhances the internationalization of education and research, and thereby fosters students with cross-cultural understanding and communication skills to contribute to the development of international society and the resolution of global issues. Reflecting the spread of global COVID-19 pandemic and fiercer competition among universities both in Japan and other countries in recent years, the International Strategy: “Hokkaido University Global Vision 2040” was formulated in 2021. It intends to define the future direction of internationalization of the University and promote comprehensive initiatives including education, research, and community outreach.
