No.1 そもそもスーパーグローバル大学って?

This project aims to bolster international competitiveness in higher education and develop global human resources.

The objective of the “Top Global University Project” is to provide priority assistance to universities that decisively implement uncompromised internalization and university reform, and bolster the international competitiveness of higher education in Japan. APU was chosen by the nation’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) for its record of such initiatives up to this point.
APU is being called upon to further its role in undertaking the challenge of trailblazing trials and driving forward the globalization of Japanese society

2000年開学 開学で掲げた3つの理念

APU sees the peaceful, sustainable development of society, the co-existence of mankind and nature and the co-existence of people with differing cultures as the most important challenges faced by today’s world in the 21st century.

開学時の目標「3つの50」

In order to become a true international university that does not fall into the trappings of a “university for facilitating the internationalization of Japanese people,” APU seeks to realize a university where students and faculty members gather from around the world. For that purpose, the university adopted Three 50s as a founding concept at its opening.
