1.Philosophy and Aims of Kwansei Gakuin University

Based on the principles of Christianity, which are part of the philosophy of the university, and in accordance with the provisions of the Fundamental Law of Education and the School Education Law, Kwansei Gakuin University aims to provide a wide range of knowledge, to teach and research specialized arts and sciences in more depth and to cultivate the characters of students.

The school motto “Mastery for Service” proposed by Dr. C. J. L. Bates, the first president and the fourth chancellor, represents the founding philosophy of Kwansei Gakuin University in a concise way. The motto is interpreted as “To develop yourself in order to contribute to society.” The university emphasizes that intelligence and all abundant gifts should be used to serve your neighbors. It also focuses on the cultivation of cosmopolitans who have an international perspective and a sense of responsibility for social contributions, which has been promoted since its foundation.

As an educational institution, Kwansei Gakuin University will provide all-round education, teach expertise, skills, and work to extensively develop creativity, an ability to execute tasks and a capacity to identify and solve problems. As a research institution, the university will enhance its unique basic research activities and also develop applied and advanced research, while working towards making social contributions by returning the research outcomes to society.
