English teachers wanted JET briefing, Oct. 10

by Dr. William Zanella, Associate Dean of International Exchange Programs

Representatives from the Consulate-General of Japan in Honolulu will introduce the 2007-08 Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program to the HPU community at a briefing Oct. 10 from 2-3:30 p.m., in the President’s Conference Room, 1166 Fort St. Mall, second floor.

U.S. citizens who will have a degree by May 2007 are invited to learn about English teaching opportunities in Japan through the JET Program. Positions are available as assistant language teachers (assistants to English teachers) in the Japan school system from July 2007 to June 2008.

Joe Rivera, a 2006 graduate in International studies, is currently a JET participant teaching in Okinawa. He follows five HPU graduates who were selected for the JET program in 2005.

Japanese language ability is not required. JET participants receive an annual salary of approximately $32,000, round-trip air fare, health insurance, and other benefits.

For more information call Dr. William Zanella, associate dean of International Exchange Programs, at 544-1171 (e-mail: wzanella@hpu.edu) or visit:

Aloha from President Wright

As the first weeks of the fall 2006 term come to a close, I hope that the term is going well for you at Hawai‘i Pacific University, whether you are a new student or returning, or are from Hawai‘i or beyond our islands. As HPU’s orientation programs draw to a close, I am sure you have noted the support that our faculty and staff are prepared to provide, as you embark on your educational journey and life journey of learning. It is a central commitment of the University to offer learning and student support services to you. That support might be assistance with the question of what you should major in, assistance with the process of choosing a graduate program, or finding a career position after graduation. So, I urge you to apply what you have learned during the orientation period and become familiar with the full range of services available to support your learning. [More]
