Greeting from the Chairman

Soka University Chairman of Board of Trustees Yasunori Tashiro

We express our deepest appreciation for your profound understanding and tremendous daily support to Soka University and Soka Women’s College.
This year marks the 44th anniversary of the founding of Soka University and the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Soka Women’s College. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to you, as it was through your sincere support that, during these years, we were able to create and develop a fulfilling educational and research environment.

Currently, Soka University is improving and enhancing its educational and research environment toward the 50th anniversary of its founding.
We will strive to raise “global citizens” based on the educational philosophy of founder Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, in order to “foster creative individuals” who can contribute to humankind and a peaceful society.

Considering economic circumstances, we will also prepare an environment where students can study with a sense of assurance by enriching our scholarship program, centering on provision-type scholarships.
Soka University will always and firmly maintain the founder’s spirit of “student-first” and will pour its energy into enhancing the educational environment and supporting the students. We thank you in advance for your heartwarming support and sincerely pray for your continued happiness and good health.

April 2015
