About This Partner

Kansai University (Osaka, Japan) dates back to 1886 when it was founded as Kansai Law School in November 1886. In 1922, it was granted the official status of a university. Kansai University pursues educational research activities under the university motto: GAKU-NO-JITSUGE (Harmony between Academia & Society).  The purpose of this approach is to pursue harmony between academia and society as well as between theory and practice.  In order to do this, Kansai University proposes the way society should be and provides whatever is necessary to reach this objective, instead of simply pursuing truth as a center of study and learning.

To achieve the goals outlined in the university motto, Kansai University strives to develop human resources possessing both the will to overcome the difficulties of our highly increasing uncertain society in order to shape the future and the ability to create a new purpose based on a deep respect for diversity.
