A contingent of four faculty and administrators are taking part in an international educational symposium in Japan this week.

Jane Hager, interim dean of the Darden College of Education; Pat Tow, chair of the exercise science, physical education and recreation department; and Hiroyuki Hamada, director of the U.S.-Japan programs for the college, will be keynote speakers.

David Hager, associate vice president for academic affairs, also will participate in the symposium, which will focus on educational reforms and impending policy issues facing both nations.

Some 300 educators, administrators and ministry policy makers from Japan, along with 40 American English teachers stationed in Japan, also will attend.

One forum was held May 15 in Hiroshima and a second forum is May 17 in Kitakyushu.
