Testimonial: Roy Wimer, Lawrence University

Roy Wimer

For me, the significance of the Japan Study program was in the realization of the vast differences between Japan and the United States; of Japanese and American culture. With a better understanding of these differences came a greater insight into the ability of the two cultures to cooperate on governmental, financial, and social platforms. In an ever more globalized world, understanding the cultural underpinnings of human behavior will be even more essential for cooperation and conflict resolution. This program has provided the foundation for this newfound understanding and I now feel pushed to take it to the next level; to promote the lessons I have learned in order to help broaden global consciousness.
