We aim to raise the 5 human abilities in students and maintain an
educational system in which the students play a leading role.
Our educational philosophy at Shigakkan University is one of Capacity Building for Global Citizenship.
Human ability, as we define it, comprises the following 5 abilities: "Wellness", "Intellectual Insight", "Social Ability", "Self Development", and "Effective Citizenship". We believe that true human ability results when these five abilities are combined, applied, and developed comprehensively.
In other words, this cultivation of human ability accompanies values and ethics that are based on truth and justice, and contributes to self-realization (which is based on a broad perspective and scientific knowledge) as well as human happiness.
Our educational objective is to raise more students to become both physically and mentally healthy with independent ideas, full of a zest for life, with energy to take action, a sense of fellowship, and a never-give-up, challenging spirit. We will aim to develop our university where students play a leading role, both in name and in reality by allowing them to design their own university, because it belongs to them. This will be achieved by providing numerous opportunities for students to take action proactively, based on our educational philosophy.
Each faculty, department, and advanced course has established individual educational objectives and is working to cultivate human ability.
