Along with expanding specialized research, we will create new value for society through interdisciplinary research.
By utilizing internal and external human networks to create prioritized research themes that are distinctive and interdisciplinary, we will work to offer new values and improve our international standing. In addition, we will prepare an environment in which faculty engaged in creative research themes can commit themselves to research activities with the aim of increasing research achievements that can receive high acclaim internationally. Furthermore, we will bring out students’ maximum capabilities and support them so that they can play a role in these research achievements as authors of research papers.
We will multifacetedly develop the international joint research that we have been promoting, and work to improve our international standing. In particular, we will expand our network of academic researchers who affirm our university’s founding principles including global citizenship education, and we will work to support research by stimulating research exchange among faculty, etc. In addition, we will establish a research center for all world regions at the university.
We will establish a committee to conduct inquiries, etc. in order to cultivate researchers in fields such as global citizenship education, and to organize a framework for newly establishing and restructuring research courses and majors in the Graduate School of Letters.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary Commemorative Project, we have renamed the Soka Education Research Institute the “Daisaku Ikeda Soka Education Research Institute.” In order to become a hub for global citizenship education, we will strive to share education and research results by creating a network of researchers for international joint research, which will include issuing publications and holding symposiums related to Soka education.
