Endowed in 1988, the Toyota Visiting Professorship is granted to scholars from Japan and countries other than Japan in alternating years. It provides a rotating chair for scholars and public figures to spend one to two semesters at U-M to engage in academic exchange and research. Toyota Visiting Professors present public lectures, offer graduate seminars, and conduct research on various Japan-related topics.
