During his meeting with Professor Belarmino, Professor Hashimoto discussed opportunities of expanding the coverage of the collaboration between the two universities to include English orientation, and the possibility of reinforcing the memorandum of agreement that both institutions entered into in the early 2000 during the time of then Silliman President Dr. Agustin Pulido.
SG is one of three Japanese universities with which Silliman has a standing student exchange program. The other two are Ferris University in Yokohama and the International Christian University in Tokyo.
