Chuo University has been accelerating its university-wide effort to cultivate global competency as well as to foster global professionals, aiming to develop the university to a global standard on the basis of our university motto, “Knowledge into Action.” Based on Chuo Vision 2025
, a ten-year development plan released in anticipation of our 140th anniversary in 2025, we will open new faculties, as well as implement an audacious plan for developing our downtown Tokyo campuses. In April 2019, the Faculty of Global Management will be established on the Tama Campus, and the Faculty of Global Informatics on the Ichigaya Tamachi Campus. Through these projects on the Tama and downtown campuses, Chuo will embark on developing vastly improved educational and research environments as well as contributing to a further enriching student life.
Chuo University is now more open to the world than ever before. Enriched through its collaborations with a society that promotes diversity, with innovations emerging from a fusion of different fields, and with the increased richness of education and research, Chuo today is reaching new heights as a global university. Based on the ability to research at a global standard and by carrying forward the strong tradition of providing practical learning while developing a heartfelt educational environment, we will work to develop the full potential of our university, as well as to advance our future-oriented traditions of education and research.
In closing, I would like to ask each of you for your sharing in our dream, for your understanding, your support and participation to ensure that 2019 is a successful year.
President, Chuo University
