Institute for Cultural Interaction Studies, Kansai University

Message from the President

  After Kansai University’s proposal, “Formation of Education and Research Department for East Asian Cultural Interaction Studies”, had been selected for the 2007 Global COE Program, we opened the Institute for Cultural Interaction Studies (ICIS) in October 2007. In addition to that, in April 2008, we initiated East-Asian Cultural Interaction Studies Course, the Cultural Interaction Studies Major, which took educational role of the ICIS.
  The primary objective of this Global COE Program is to facilitate the development of internationally competitive universities by training students to become creative professionals with world-class leadership skills and preparing them for productive careers in international academia. Our program is an ambitious, meticulously planned project established under this sweeping vision.
   Our intention is to harness the unique character and capabilities of Kansai University in order to develop a distinctive Global Center of Excellence charged with cultivating talented individuals and preparing them for great accomplishments on the world stage of the 21st century. To accomplish this mission, the Institute will draw on many years of research and accumulated knowledge from Kansai University. As the president of university, I will be bringing my full attention to bear on this project.
   I look forward to your support and welcome your highest expectations.
