The Japan-America Student Conference (JASC) is a non-profit educational and cultural exchange program for university students from the United States and Japan.It is the oldest student-run exchange program in the United States, beginning with the first JASC in 1934.
JASC provides an opportunity for Japanese and American students from diverse backgrounds to extensively discuss issues that affect our two nations.By working together to confront common concerns, our countries can improve mutual understanding, friendship, and trust to strengthen our partnership.
As students, we stand in a unique position that permits us to cooperatively observe and participate in contemporary politics and diplomacy. Our student status also facilitates education, about ourselves and also about others. As the leaders of the future, we must begin an active, personal commitment to these goals now.
