The Institute for Daisaku Ikeda Studies in Education introduced the Doctoral Research Dialogue Series, which brings DePaul graduate students engaged in Makiguchi and Ikeda studies into dialogue with doctoral students from other universities who are engaged in similar scholarship. The Series began on October 15, 2015 with a lecture by Julie Nagashima, a doctoral candidate at University of Pittsburgh. Institute-affiliated faculty member Gonzalo Obelleiro coordinates the Series as a way of supporting DePaul’s EdD students and developing a network of emerging young scholars. DePaul currently offers three graduate courses on the educational philosophies and practices of Daisaku Ikeda and Tsunesaburo Makiguchi. Over 200 students have taken these courses, a number of whom are now engaged in doctoral research in this area.
