In 1997, professor Daniel Aldrich completed an internship at the Japanese firm Pasona Group Inc., where he was tasked with helping to rebuild Kobe after a massive earthquake. Now, Pasona has named him “Alumni of the Year” for his contributions.
“This was my first time working on the issue of disasters and helped me get into the field,” said Aldrich, professor of political science, public policy and urban affairs. “It was a tremendous honor and shows the importance of building international networks for personal and professional goals.”
