Foundation: 1949

Mission: To foster motivated, highly creative individuals capable of serving as human resources and willing to embrace new and difficult issues from a broad global perspective through the incorporation of the principles of the dignity of mankind in order to best respond to the needs of society. In order to elevate the global standards with regard to educational and research activities, through the collaboration with educational and research institutions both at home and abroad, and to gather timely information from throughout the world in terms of scholarship and scientific technology, the university seeks to promote cutting-edge creative academic pursuits through on-going efforts to improve by learning with and from others. In order to establish the autonomy of the university, in deference to the independence and autonomy of each constituent member of the university community, we must also strive to establish and maintain the academic freedom that serves as the institutional security of the university so that we can realize an enhanced invigoration and individualization of the education and research activities that are carried out. At the same time, we must maintain a rigorous awareness of our self-responsibility and strive for a constant elevation of our role as an open university.
