President, Kyushu University


Happy New Year from Kyushu University.

As we enter this new year, I would like to share our aspirations for 2022 with all members of the Kyushu University body and the wider community.

Each of our students has chosen to pursue a degree through a bachelor's, master's, or doctoral program at Kyushu University. On the occasion of this new year, I ask you to reflect on why you decided to study here. If you are unsure whether your current study path and student life align with your original aspirations, please talk to a faculty or staff member during your next class or lab. We are here to help you succeed.

On November 22, 2021, Kyushu University was selected as a Designated National University Corporation by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). We have designed the “Kyushu University Vision 2030” initiative upon this MEXT designation as we aspire to be a “university that drives social change with integrative knowledge” and contribute to solving social issues and transforming socio-economic systems.
