Soliciting Opinions on the Draft for Soka University Grand Design 2021–2030 (Tentative Name)

In 2010, Soka University announced its “Soka University Grand Design,” which describes the vision of our university towards the 50th anniversary (in 2021) and strategically sets forth the goals and plans for that vision. Since the launch of this initiative, our university has executed a number of reforms, including the establishment of the Faculty of International Liberal Arts and the Faculty of Nursing, improvements to the research capability centered on the Research Promotion Center, the globalization of the campus as symbolized by being selected for the Top Global University Project, and the enhancement of the education environment, such as in the construction of the Central Education Tower “Global Square.” The growth of students has been remarkable; our students have accomplished achievements in a variety of fields, such as winning business contests and participating in international exchange programs, with more students studying abroad and achieving higher language test scores. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our instructors, staff, and students for their hard work.

In order to seamlessly carry on the reforms from the 50th anniversary in 2021, we have decided to formulate a mid- to long-term plan looking toward the next milestone, which is the 100th anniversary of Soka education (November 18, 2030). We would appreciate it if everyone that supports our university, including our instructors, staff, students, and alumni, would read the draft of the Soka University Grand Design 2021–2030 (hereinafter referred to as “New Grand Design”) and give us your feedback about our university’s new path.
