  2. In order to strengthen our global presence, we realize that we need, in addition to a conventional "internationalization" strategy focused on calibrating our institutional practices into global standard, a set of 'international' strategies which should enable us to compete with other world-class universities in the race for talented researchers/students and external funding.

    【Goal-3】Recruit talented students from all over the globe as a university open to the world, as our founding philosophy states.
    【Goal-4】 Engage in cutting edge researches that seek after the truths in a whole host of fields and aim to apply research results to society at large.
