Kohei Miura Visiting Professorship
Every year since 1973, OHIO and Chubu University have exchanged faculty members through a visiting professors program, providing students and professors the unique opportunity of having a truly international learning experience. Faculty members who come to OHIO from Chubu University are called Robert Glidden Visiting Professors. OHIO faculty members who travel to Chubu University are Kohei Miura Visiting Professors – named in honor of the founder of Chubu University.
Kohei Miura Visiting Professors are expected to engage in an active program of scholarship that may include such activities as teaching a regular course or seminar; teaching short-term workshops; delivering lectures; giving guest presentations in classes and seminars; engaging in research activities; conducting independent study programs with students and/or professors; participating in outreach activities; and acting as consultants in areas such as library development, research and pedagogy.
