Along with achieving the SDGs, we will work to achieve a global society in which “no one will be left behind.”
We will advance initiatives aimed at achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) issued by the United Nations. With the “SDGs Promotion Center” established in 2019 at the core, we will organize various SDGs-related projects by field, publicize them internally and externally, and provide support for the initiatives with a high contribution and those that show a promising future. In addition, we will foster a wide range of talent that will contribute to achieving the SDGs, as well as create an internal and external network. Furthermore, we will support the creation and implementation of interdisciplinary research centered on the SDGs.
Previously, we have collaborated with various United Nations institutions to support refugees in attending school, hold lectures and symposiums, etc. Furthermore, in addition to joining the “United Nations Academic Impact,” which promotes collaboration among universities and other institutions of higher education around the world, and promoting SDGs activities both inside and outside the university, we have expanded support activities for elementary and junior high schools aiming to become UNESCO Associated Schools. As we work to achieve the SDGs, in addition to strengthening our collaboration with various United Nations institutions, we will strive to achieve a global society in which “no one will be left behind” through exchange with various institutions such as ASAIHL (Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning).
In addition to returning learning to society by solving problems in the local community, we will expand the “Service Learning Program,” an education method in which students utilize knowledge gained through society in their own learning activities and we will consider establishing a “Service Learning Center” (tentative name). Furthermore, we will strengthen the functions of the “Center for Community-Industry-Academia Collaboration” established to promote coordination and cooperation among the government, industry, educational institutions, and more. We will fulfill our role as a platform to link universities with the government, regional areas, etc.
