US, Japan, Korea, and China
ISC facilitates three academic and cultural exchange programs organized by university students in the U.S., Japan, Korea, and China.
Our programs are premised on the belief that students are not passive observers of international diplomacy, but rather are concerned citizens charged with the responsibility of guiding the direction of the world as leaders in U.S.-Asia relations.
Student Delegates elect their peers to organize and lead each month-long program, empowering young people in the U.S., Japan, Korea and China to take joint action in addressing global problems.
Delegates join Roundtables to learn about and analyze real-world issues. Each gathering is characterized by full and frank discussions, undertaken in the spirit of understanding each other’s point of view.
Alumni have distinguished themselves in business, academia, and government. Founded by students in 1934, the Conferences share a history of creative and compassionate leadership.
History & Alumni
Delegates are competitively selected from universities in the U.S., Japan, and Korea. Each program convenes up to four sites in four weeks, hosted by a diversity of schools in each country.
