From the Chairman and the Dean
Message from the CEO
The challenges of the world require an effective education and practical expertise.
Juntendo University CEO
Juntendo University, originally founded in the ninth year of Tenpo (1838) during the late Edo period, is the oldest educational facility for Western medicine in Japan. Over the years, we have worked hard to cultivate in our students skills in medicine, nursing, and sports, contributing to the health and well-being of Japan and beyond.
Now, however, as nations develop and the world’s population increases, the demand for highly-skilled individuals who possess a wide range of knowledge and an open mind is greater than ever.
To meet this demand, on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of our university in April 2015, we launched the Faculty of International Liberal Arts.
With this new faculty, we seek to cultivate educated individuals who can be successful active participants in the global community while preserving our commitment to jin, the spirit of benevolence which has guided our institution over its long history.
Message from the President
A university that meets the aspirations of its students in modern society
Juntendo University President
Although Juntendo recently celebrated its 175th anniversary, it is important to note how this university has evolved from its early days during the Edo period up to our modern times, continually re-setting the bar of excellence in medicine. Indeed it is this ability to adapt that has been a constant feature of Juntendo.
In April of 2015, in order to help prepare the next generation to meet the demands of a globalized society, Juntendo opened its Faculty of International Liberal Arts, bringing Juntendo to a total of five faculties, three graduate schools, and six hospitals. At present, in terms of education, research and medicine, we are at the forefront in Japan.
Message from the Dean
Go forth into the world and the future as a global citizen
Dean of the Faculty of International Liberal Arts
The aim of the Faculty of International Liberal Arts, amidst the varying perspectives within the international community, is the cultivation of global citizens: independent people who are able to co-exist with those around them and live proactively.
In this faculty, in addition to a rich education and strong communication abilities, students will acquire specialized knowledg and skills in the field of healthcare, which Juntendo University has developed over the years. Furthermore, students will benefit from our program which provides the skills to build a brighter future through cooperation and exchanges with all manner of people, with a global scope in mind.
We will support with all our strength everyone who dreams of working for people of the world.
