Mid/Long-Term Plans
Mid/Long-Term Plans

Since its establishment in 1966, the university has taken steps to establish new faculties, improve the study abroad system, and reform the entrance examination system in response to the needs of the times. In order to clarify the direction that our faculty and staff should take in such a highly volatile era, and to realize our School Philosophy, Educational Philosophy, and Educational Guidelines, we formulated an action plan we hope to achieve in the next five to ten years.

Message from President Yoshihito Okinaga

We are determined to continue to make great efforts to ensure the realization of the “One’s Way” philosophy.

The School Philosophy of Teikyo University (hereinafter referred to as "the university") is "to nurture students with creativity, humanity, and expertise through practical learning, who can acquire a broad range of knowledge and make judgments from an international perspective, based on effort and without prejudice." The university was founded in order to realize this ideal through higher education.

In order to realize the ideals of the School Philosophy, the university's educational philosophy provides a guideline for students, describing "a way of life in which one acts with an awareness of one's own problems and takes responsibility for the results of one's own actions." We consider "One's Way"—in other words, the idea of standing on one's own and having self-discipline—to be the fundamental philosophy for the teaching activities of our staff as well as the learning activities of our students.

In addition, in order to train human resources in line with the School Philosophy, it is important to cultivate a good balance of will, wisdom, judgment, and spiritual capacity, or in other words, knowledge, affection, and will. As specific educational guidelines to this end, we emphasize "practical learning" to acquire logical thinking through practice, "international perspectives" to learn and experience cross-cultural understanding, and "open-mindedness" to learn a wide range of necessary knowledge and skills without prejudice. These three concepts define the content and methods of education at the university, and can be said to be a necessary condition for the fulfillment of the educational philosophy.

The mission and purpose of the university is to "provide education based on the true objectives of the Basic Act of Education, the School Education Act, and the School Philosophy, and to foster highly creative and educated human resources who can contribute to the development of society from a global perspective by teaching specialized knowledge and advanced theory and skills in addition to upper secondary school education... [partially omitted]." We strive to nurture human resources in accordance with the School Philosophy.

In addition, based on the School Philosophy, each faculty and department has its own individuality, unique features, and specific direction in terms of its educational objectives.

Since its establishment in 1966, the university has taken steps to establish new faculties, improve the study abroad system, and reform the entrance examination system in response to the needs of the times. In order to clarify the direction that our faculty and staff should take in such a volatile era, and to realize our School Philosophy, Educational Philosophy, Educational Guidelines, Mission and Purpose, and Educational Objectives, we formulated an action plan in 2013 that we hope to achieve in the next five to ten years.

Five years have passed since our plan was formulated, and the environment surrounding the university is still changing drastically. We will partially revise the medium- to long-term plan in order to promptly respond to what society will require of universities moving forward.


Formulated in May 2013
Partially revised in April 2019

OKINAGA Yoshihito, President of Teikyo University
