Based at Earlham College, Japan Study links member colleges of the Great Lakes Colleges Association and the Associated Colleges of the Midwest with Waseda University in Tokyo.

Participants have gone on to distinguished careers in academics, industry, the arts, and governmental and non-governmental organizations. They play important roles in a wide range of settings linking Japan, the United States, and the rest of the world.
