institution that shares our values
in undergraduate education among engineering and
the sciences," states Ishikawa. "I have always been
impressed with Rose Hulman's facilities, and the quality of
its faculty, staff, and students."
For Rose-Hulman, students expand their
global horizons by learning Japanese on campus, and then
taking a semester of language and culture courses in
Japan. Faculty members have also taught at KIT, and
basketball and baseball teams have played exhibition games
against Japanese teams.
"We have sent more than 300 faculty, staff,
students, and family members to visit KIT, and we hope to send
even more in the future," states Rose Hulman President
Robert A. Coons.
The cherry tree grove will be a permanent
landmark to showcase the Rose-Hulman-KIT partnership. It
is located near the White Chapel on the west side of
campus and contains 40 trees-symbolic of each year in
the partnership for both colleges.
