TC’s Japan Campus is officially accredited by the Japanese government. The new status, awarded by Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, means that Japanese graduates of the 20-year-old institution, now officially known as a “Foreign Graduate School, Japan Campus” can use the credits they’ve earned to apply for higher degrees at Japanese universities.
In a project bringing together TC, The Rockefeller Foundation, and HBO Documentary Films, a 100-page curriculum addressing racial issues is distributed free of charge by TC Press to high school, college, and community educators. The curriculum is linked to the HBO Film When the Levees Broke.
