*AC21 session “Possibilities and Challenges of International University Consortia: Experience of 

AC21 General Secretariat held a session on AC21 and our progress over 5 years at the Third APAIE 
Conference which was held on March 27 at Waseda University. Director Prof. Nomizu, Deputy Director 
Dr. Horie and Project Coordinator Dr. Iwaki spoke about the possibilities, challenges and 
experiences of AC21 over past 5 years. The session was attended by more than 50 people and had a 
lively discussion. Many interesting ideas and comments were exchanged during the question and answer 
period. Many member institutions also visited the AC21/Nagoya University joint stand. The session 
indeed gave wide possible publicity to AC21. Through this experience, we felt that holding such 
session and promoting AC21 outside is extremely important and also necessary. We will continue to 
participate and hold sessions in similar events.
