We are Supporting Universities Meet the Demands of the Future
As outlined in the project, “Comprehensive Support Project for Reform of Private Universities”, led by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, private school reforms are now aiming beyond academic ability. New reforms are meeting the demands of a global society, aiming to enhance broader competencies, strengths and roles. Above all, there is a mission to increase the number of universities that actively promote for the following four goals.
1. Development of distinctive education to achieve the " Society 5.0 "
2. Development of distinctive advanced research
3. Contribution to the local community
4. Promotion of social implementation
To achieve goals 3. and 4., it is essential to strengthen efforts towards greater global cooperation and joint research between universities, with local governments and with industry. In addition, due to the rapid transformation of company structure and processes, universities must develop human resources who can respond to and thrive in new and global environments amid a rapidly changing society, that is, human resources who have a greater "power of execution" and "innovation" to create new goods and services. Progress towards this goal has already been made with the opening of professional and vocational universities / colleges in 2019 that emphasize practical and vocational education and nurture future professionals through close cooperation with industries.

What Is Necessary for the Globalization Of Universities and the Improvement of the Institution's International Environment?
Here is an example of the steps required for university globalization. We provide comprehensive support
necessary for internationalization, from consulting, to foreign language training, cross-cultural understanding and
education, translation and interpretation.
Formulation of a Globalization Policy
It is important to determine the university's globalization policy and make an implementation plan for foreign language education in curricula, increase the number of foreign instructors with comprehensive and careful recruitment, implement cross-cultural education for staff, and initiate and formally establish collaborations with overseas universities.
Recruiting Qualified Foreign Teachers
Increasing the ratio of foreign instructors is an important factor in responding to the globalization of universities and to current social needs. It is necessary to hire and educate human resources who understand the current and future goals of Japanese education, and Japanese business culture. Likewise having teachers with the right personal qualities and communication skills is essential.
Creating a Foreign Language Education Program to Meets Social Needs
It is important to improve the basic English proficiency needed by students after graduation that will allow them to be active and effective members of a global society. To realize this goal there must be a curriculum that can develop practical English proficiency, improve cross-cultural understanding, and cultivate global business awareness and skills.
Cross-cultural Understanding Education For Staff
The understanding of the staff is indispensable for the globalization of the university. In order to respond to the increase in foreign lecturers and international students and to activate exchanges with overseas universities, understanding of the globalization policy and of the different cultures by staff are the first steps.
Establishing Collaboration Agreements With Overseas Universities
By collaborating with overseas universities, international cultural and academic exchanges between students and faculty members will become possible and enhance the academic and social reputation of institution. For the successful realization of such agreements, it is important to understand clearly the needs and goals of each university with the smooth facilitation of an exchange of opinions and ideas, negotiate a win-win alliance and finally prepare comprehensive and accurate documentation to officiate the collaboration agreement.
