Message from President
At Tokai Gakuen University, we emphasize on nurturing not only academic skills and knowledge, but also the personal skills necessary to live in society.
At the core of this is the university's educational philosophy of "symbiosis".
We all live in harmony with the people, society and natural environment around us. We should keep this in mind, be grateful for it and live our lives to the fullest.
This is the concept of symbiosis.
Future society will require the ability to think and act on one's own more than ever before, with the 100-year life cycle and the technological advances in artificial intelligence.
We would like students to prepare to make full use of themselves in such a society through their four years at university - observe society and the world with their own eyes, experience it and discuss it with friends, books and themselves. We hope that they can enjoy spending this time that will guide them to their future selves, but without spoiling them.
Tokai Gakuen University is developing the university-wide Tomoiki Liberal Arts Education Program starting in 2020, providing students with the opportunity to broaden their knowledge in various fields such as nature conservation and multiculturalism. We will continue to enhance the Tomoiki Liberal Arts Education Program in the future.
In recent years, there has been a renewed emphasis on liberal arts education as the foundation for flexible thinking. Rather than just accumulating new knowledge and information, students are encouraged to select, connect and contemplate information in order to utilize it.
We hope that the strengths students acquire here will be the source of their success in society, and that they will lead a life rich in spirit.
