This fall marks the 15th Anniversary of Associates in Cultural Exchange’s partnership with its host institution in Bozeman–Montana State University.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, A.C.E. President David Woodward, Chief Executive Officer Tony Fantham, and President of A.C.E. Japan, Shinji Moriyama traveled to Bozeman for a special ceremony organized by A.C.E. at MSU faculty member Cheri Ladd Le Cain. The Language Institute Director, Dr. Rick O’Connor, welcomed guests from MSU and the Office of International Programs, including Provost Dr. Joseph Feddock, Vice Provost Dr. Carl Fox, Vice Provost Dr. Norman Peterson, and Vice Provost and incoming A.C.E. board member Dr. Greg Young.
