Kindai University’s founding principles are ‘learning for the real world’ and ‘nurturing intellectual and emotional intelligence’, and we are committed to our educational goal of developing students into individuals who are caring, trustworthy, and respectable. We firmly believe that our founding principles and educational goal will be all the more important in the 21st century as Japan continues to develop further into a knowledge-based society.
As a full-range academic institution with different faculties and strengths, we are trying to achieve the union of practical education and the nurturing of intellectual and emotional intelligence. Practical education in its true sense does not necessarily seek simple practicability; it also requires us to understand the meaning of the events unfolding around us. Standing firmly on an understanding of reality, we should continue to make steady efforts towards creative, intellectual, and emotional intelligence while keeping historical and cultural perspectives in mind. What makes for caring, trustworthy, and respectable people? We believe that such people are self-motivated and can spur themselves on to contribute to society throughout their lifetime. Our mission in today’s world is to send such individuals into society.
We welcome applicants, from Japan and around the world, who share the views expressed in our founding principles and educational goal.
Kindai University aims to accomplish its founding principles and educational goal by offering curricula that reflect the characteristics of each faculty. The two pillars of a Kindai University education are general education courses and major courses. We also offer a variety of programs—including volunteer activities, internship programs, and programs designed for obtaining licenses in a number of specialized fields—through which our faculty and administrative staff members can help students achieve their academic, individual, and career goals.
Kindai University also offers opportunities for students, faculty members, and those in various career fields to learn from each other, working towards realizing a society where everyone has an opportunity to be involved in life-long learning.
Kindai University’s express educational purpose is to foster students who have a strong will to contribute to society using the deep knowledge and sincere aspirations acquired here based on our founding principles and educational goal—all so that they can make meaningful contributions to society. To achieve this purpose, students’ educational achievements are professionally assessed, and the diploma and academic degrees are conferred to students who have successfully achieved the required number of credits.
