  • For those who are interested in the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program,  

     

    The application period for the annual JET Program is approaching. This year, however, there will be no JET Information Session on the campus of William Paterson University. Instead, the JET information session will be held virtually by the Consulate General of Japan in New York. Please read the following instructions to attend a general JET Information Session. 

     

    The Consulate General of Japan in New York is pleased to invite the students of William Paterson University to our upcoming virtual information sessions for the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program, a competitive employment opportunity managed by the government of Japan that allows young professionals to live and work in cities, towns, and villages throughout Japan. 

      

    The sessions will be hosted via Zoom Webinar and is a rare chance to hear directly from a JET Program Coordinator as well as former JET Program participants, wherever you are.

    ABOUT THE JET PROGRAM  

     

    Founded in 1987, JET has sent more than 70,000 participants from around the globe (including more than 35,800 Americans) to work in schools, boards of education, and government offices throughout Japan. Being a JET is an opportunity to work and to represent the United States as cultural ambassadors to Japan. Most participants serve as Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) and work in public and private schools; some work as Coordinators for International Relations (CIRs) as interpreters/translators. New applications are accepted each fall.

  • In conjunction with WP’s Latinidad Heritage Celebration, we present to you a thrilling performance of traditional Colombian music and dance by La Cumbiamba eNeYé. The powerfully rhythmic Afro-Colombian music is the heart of the traditional open-air gatherings known as cumbiambas, from which the ensemble takes its name. Performing the music of both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of Colombia, the group has been establishing itself as one of the finest ensembles of its kind in the United States. La Cumbiamba explores the Colombian musical styles of cumbia, puya and mapalé with the use of traditional instruments from the African Diaspora, as well as those of the Indians of Colombia and the European settlers. Please join us for this open-air gathering or "cumbiamba" of music and dance in front of the Shea Center on the plaza. 

    This event is free and open to the public. An assortment of empanadas, fresh fruit cups, and hot/cold beverages will be served to all guests in attendance, courtesy of the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. Please note: In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be moved inside the Shea Auditorium. 

    “The ensemble’s artistry and verve energized the inauguration of this year’s Latin American and Caribbean programming at Princeton, and set a new standard for PLAS cultural events.” – Deborah Yashar, Director, Program in Latin American Studies, Princeton University
