Foundation: 1928

Mission: In accordance with the university’s founding principles, we will contribute to a prosperous and stable society by nurturing talented individuals who will create new value in a self-directed way, guided by a constant desire for the truth, by a worldview marked by self-discipline and a commitment to coexistence, and by a deep, globally oriented awareness of the challenges and missions that face our society in the new era.

Vision: Kanagawa University was founded in Yokohama, the city by the sea that became Japan's point of contact with the world. In an era in which diverse values coexist, our campuses offer personal interaction and cross-cultural rapport, interplay between knowledge and practice, and a melding of education and research. Through these, we provide learning that is truly attuned to the real world of the 21st century, and solutions to problems both local and global. We aim to be a university that attracts the world and disseminates our knowledge to the world.
