Dr. Williams: I have been at Berkeley for three years. There had been a national search to find someone in the field of Japanese Buddhism and I was fortunate enough to land the position as a tenured professor. At the time, UC Berkeley already had professors in Indian, Tibetan and Chinese Buddhism, but they needed someone for Japanese Buddhism. I received my undergraduate degree in Religious Studies at Reed College in Portland, Oregon as well as my Ph.D. from Harvard. In addition to working in the Buddhist Studies program at Berkeley, I also direct the Center for Japanese Studies with 30 or so affiliate faculty from different departments. What is your Mission Statement for the Center of Japanese Studies? Dr. Williams: Our mission is to deepen the understanding of Japan.

Dr. Williams: The Center and the Shinnyo-en Foundation have some basic, shared values.
