Kanagawa University



As an educational institution that incorporates one of Japan’s largest universities and an integrated junior and senior high school system, Kanagawa University is committed to creating a more attractive academic environment in every dimension of campus life, from education and research to social contribution. Over the years, Kanagawa University has contributed to a prosperous and stable society by nurturing promising young talent for careers in every field, including business, in accordance with the school’s founding principles: “Simple and Sturdy,” “Forward-thinking,” and “Balanced and Steady.” “Simple and Sturdy” epitomizes a respect for tradition and the classics, a regard for common sense, and an unwavering sense of justice, while “Forward-thinking” indicates a readiness to take on difficult challenges, to seek progress and positive change. The “Balanced and Steady” individual, while deeply aware of the values contained in these two principles, creates new value in a self-directed way, discerning what is true and essential by bringing to bear an inquiring mind and a spirit of harmony and rapport, within a worldview marked by self-discipline and a commitment to coexistence.
