In 2015 during the 130th anniversary of its founding, Chuo University released Chuo Vision 2025, a ten-year development plan that includes the establishment of new faculties, the upgrading of campuses, continued promotion of global initiatives, the promotion of sports, and the realization of our goal of becoming a comprehensive university. We are pleased that during the first five years, Chuo has been making steady progress with each pillar of this plan, including the establishment of two new faculties - the Faculty of Global Management and the Faculty of Global Informatics; the acquisition of land for the planned relocation of the Law Faculty; and, the construction of two new buildings on the Tama Campus, the International Residence Chuo and the Global Gateway Chuo.
2021 will be the first year of the latter half of this ten-year development plan. In keeping with our past progress, we promise to continue working tirelessly and sincerely for the further growth and development of Chuo University. With this in mind, I ask all Chuo community stakeholders, students, faculty, staff and alumni, for your understanding, cooperation and support to ensure that 2021 will be even more fulfilling and successful than years past.
Chancellor, Chuo University
