Preserving Traditions While Continuing to Evolve

Professor Akira Haseyama (President, Keio University)

Founded in 1858 by Yukichi Fukuzawa, Keio University is Japan's first modern institution of higher learning. Over the years, Keio has continued to evolve while preserving its tradition of management through the willing cooperation of private individuals and groups.

In order to survive globalization, which has been the defining feature of the 21st century, universities must meet world standards while maintaining their uniqueness. Keio's distinctive characteristic lies in its contribution to Japan's modernization by remaining private, and sending out individuals who are instilled with the spirit of independence and self-respect and who have the ability to think independently about the future of our world without being swayed by the trends of the moment-to every field of society. While this is an enduring principle of Keio, we are also required to strengthen education and research to adapt to the changing times. Keio University must serve the educational needs of our students head-on; provide research support that respects individual academic disciplines, while encouraging collaboration and integration among them; listen to the voices of the students and faculty; aim for an institutional management that places importance on harmony and contentment among all members.
