Greeting from the Director


In December, 2008, Tokushima University (TU) renewed the former “International Student Center” as the “International Center” for the purpose of increasing internationalization. Within the University, the Center is the main institute for the promotion of international enterprise.

The Center aims to promote the international exchange projects of the University and develop the TU-based “Global and Local Network of Excellence” with partner universities abroad. In addition, the Center provides the intellectual space for Japanese students and international students to engage in friendly competition, and understand each other’s culture. The University has adopted a policy of internationalization, with the aim to produce future world-class human resources and advance our education and research as an integrated system, while simultaneously developing regionally based international exchange activities and cultivation of internationally-aware students and instructors, with our goal being the realization of “Tokushima University as a university open to the world”. Based on the University’s policy, we staff members of the Center and the Division of International Affairs dedicate ourselves to realize a more internationalized and diverse society by promoting more cross-cultural interactions among our Japanese and international students, local residents, and local high school and junior high school students.

We all staff members do hope you will give us further guidance and continuous encouragement for the Center.
