Joseph Lubitz, a May 2014 graduate, has received a Critical Language Scholarship from the U.S. Department of State. The program’s language institutes cover about one academic year of university-level language coursework during a seven- to 10-week period, and are designed to meet the needs of students from a variety of language levels and backgrounds. Over the summer, Lubitz will receive intensive Japanese language instruction at Himeji Dokkyo University in Himeji, Japan.

A comparative literature major from Portland, Oregon, Lubitz intends to apply to graduate school immediately after his language study in Japan.
