On Wednesday, August 24, 2022, Principal Officer Matthew A. Cenzer of U.S. Consulate Nagoya paid a courtesy visit to Gifu University. He met with President Kazuhiro Yoshida, Vice President Shinji Kambara (International Affairs, Information and (Deputy in Charge for) Evaluation), and Professor Hiroyuki Koyama, Associate Director of GU-GLOCAL. They exchanged opinions about the relationship between the United States and Gifu University.

In the meeting, they talked about the university-level agreements between Gifu University and the universities in the U.S., history and the current state of student and faculty exchange among these universities. In addition, they discussed issues related to science and mathematics education which is jointly promoted with Gifu Prefecture, and aerospace technologies, one of the main focus of Tokai National Higher Education and Research System. They agreed to facilitate partnerships between Gifu University and academic institutions in the United States.

Gifu Universities concluded the university-level agreements with San Diego State University (in 1985), Northern Kentucky University (in 1990), Utah State University (in 1997), and the University of South Florida (in 2020). It is hoped that the friendship between Gifu University and these overseas partner universities in the U.S. will continue to thrive through active exchange between students and the faculties.
