Culture and Unrealistic Expectations Challenge American Campuses in Japan.
McMurtrie, Beth
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n39 pA56-58 Jun 2, 2000
Examines difficulties faced by American university branches in Japan. Notes that 30 institutions developed programs offering American-style college education during the 1980s and 1990s but that only five have survived, due primarily to culture clashes. Focuses on experiences of the Temple University branch in Tokyo, which survives, and Minnesota State University in Akita, which is closing. (DB)
