Twelve college and university educators from throughout Japan will be in Bozeman through mid-August as part of the Long-Term Education Administrators program at Montana State University.

LEAP participants will spend their first 10 weeks in Bozeman studying English language at the A.C.E. Language Institute at MSU and learning about higher education and international program operations. The MSU Office of International Programs is seeking MSU offices and departments who will allow LEAP participants to have short informational meetings to learn more about what MSU administrators do.  

During their time in Bozeman, LEAP participants will stay with local families from July 30-Aug. 9, which helps provide cultural immersion and strong language development opportunities. Several homestay opportunities are still needed for the 10-day period. If interested, contact Makiko Diehl at or at 994-7944.

In August, LEAP participants move to other U.S. universities to participate in internships until March 2016.
