  • Chiba University

    The history of Chiba University, including predecessors, can be traced back about 140 years. As university charter “Always Aim Higher” implies, we strive to become a world-leading institution by working closely with students, faculty, administration, our local community, our country, and people all over the world. Today, with 9 faculties and 11 graduate schools, Chiba University is achieving that goal.

     
    The incorporation of national universities in 2004 brought newfound freedom to Chiba University, yet it also presented a new set of challenges and obstacles. Faced with a wide range of problems including management issues, we had to ask ourselves some fundamental questions: What is the problem? What is our objective? What should we do? How do we evaluate the results? Overcoming these challenges require the cooperation of everyone involved with the university ranging from students to faculty and staff. This open-minded approach to problems is the most crucial asset of the university. 
     
    Chiba University fosters creative students who learn proactively and use their talents to make positive contributions to society. Results produced from their research are used to benefi t people throughout the world. Our university is continuously striving forward by creating new organizations to strengthen management and cultivating educational environments to achieve academic success. We view student activities with the highest regard.
     
    It is very important to understand the evolution of changes in history in order to accurately understand the present. This helps us enhance and further develop Chiba University for an everchanging world. I hope that you find this booklet useful as we continue on our journey to aim higher.

  • University of Tsukuba

    The University of Tsukuba aims to establish free exchange and close relationships in both basic and applied sciences with educational and research organizations and academic communities in Japan and overseas. While developing these relationships, we intend to pursue education and research to cultivate men and women with creative intelligence and rich human qualities.

    The University of Tsukuba endeavors to contribute to the progress of science and culture. Formerly, Japanese universities tended to remain cloistered in their own narrow, specialized fields, creating polarization, stagnation in education and research and alienation from their communities.
    The University of Tsukuba has decided to function as a university which is open to all within and outside of Japan. Toward this end, the university has made it its goal to develop an organization better suiting the functions and administration with a new concept of education and research highly international in character, rich in diversity and flexibility and capable of dealing sensitively with the changes occurring in contemporary society.

    On its 60th anniversary in 2009, Kyung Hee University prepared for a second leap forward while seeking a new paradigm of future university development. It reflected on the fundamental mission of the University and established a new vision and goals for becoming a true university of the future. In this new vision for a university that transcends the traditional notion of the university as a mere physical location and the limitations of an exclusive academe, Kyung Hee University will rise to international prestige and develop into an international center of research, education, and praxis that brings together reality and imagination, the basics and applied sciences, and theory and practice. Pursuing "Global Eminence" on a foundation of academic excellence, Kyung Hee University will become an academic community that fulfills its social responsibility by cultivating world citizens with the capacity for communication and public service.
