Presented a summary of partnering opportunities at the senior staff meeting of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities, Tokyo, Japan, held at Waseda University on thursday March 7.  Then over to the US Embassy, Tokyo, to inform staffers there of the summer school to be conducted at Tohoku University in July (?) 2013.  Summer school will be for administrators and policy makers as planned at this time.  A field trip to the tsunami inundation area will also be held.  A great time and place to learn about disasters and what we can do about them.

Then back to the US to complete teaching for this term, final exams and projects, etc.  The usual life of an academic!
