Message from the Chancellor

  Kiyoshi Yamada, Chancellor

In fiscal 2017’s third-term medium-term objectives, Tokai University defined education, research, social cooperation, and international cooperation as key areas. We are working to develop human resources who can play an active role globally, with the aim of establishing a new Tokai brand. We aim to become a University that contributes to a dramatic improvement in QOL and our policy is to promote cooperation with institutions in Japan and overseas in research activities.

Based on these policies, the Tokai University tenure track system recruits and trains young researchers. The majority of tenure track faculty members selected in this system have obtained tenure and are active in a wide range of research fields, taking on priority research for the University in not only the medical and science and technology fields, but also in activity that integrates the arts with the sciences.

We are entering an era of global competition and the flow of people and goods and the speed of social reform continues to accelerate. It is becoming increasingly important to be able to make contributions to society through leadership in education and research. To this end, instructing and nurturing the next generation of people who demonstrate high intellectual creativity is vital. In order to realize this, Tokai University uses pioneering education and research to build the foundations for Japan to play a leading global role. In addition to constructing a global research base, we also strive to contribute to a wide range of regions and societies, both in Japan and overseas. In particular, our educational system develops human resources who can create innovation, open up new fields by connecting different research fields together, and bring about change in science and technology to contribute to the region and society.
