The U.S.-Japan Institute at San Francisco State University periodically organizes lectures and conferences around topics of interest to American and Japanese students, executives, academics and policy makers. These lectures and conferences cover a wide range of topics and can be tailored to the demands of the interested group. The number of participants have varied between ten and forty. The Institute has cooperated with professors, consultants, and policy specialists to host a number of memorable conferences over the years.
