Message from Dean, Division of International Affairs

Kansai University, founded in 1886 as a law school, was reborn in 1922 as a comprehensive university with several faculties. Juntaro Yamaoka, the president of Kansai University at that time, advocated the university motto “学の実化(gaku no jituge)”, which meant that the university's academics should be in harmony with the real world.

Almost a century later, both academia and society are changing faster than ever before, and one of the reasons for this is the accelerated pace of globalization. As a university that advocates harmony between academia and society, Kansai University has taken a variety of measures in response to the changes brought about by globalization, and has achieved fruitful results in various exchange programs of students and researchers with universities all over the world or continuous improvement of language education.
