Increase diversity among faculty, staff, and researchers, not only in terms of external diversity factors such as age, gender, nationality, and race, but also in terms of internal diversity factors such as education and research styles, values, etc. so that these community members can positively influence each other.
Furthermore, build an environment where these diverse human resources can make the most of their abilities.

To inspire the birth of new ideas and creations, to supply society with dreams and new value, to create a buzz, Tokyo Tech facilitates occasions. Occasions are what we make of them. Conversing with diverse individuals in creative spaces about a broad range of knowledge, academic disciplines, and social issues enhances the outcome of these occasions. By encouraging the pursuit of individual passions, constantly diversifying the student and staff population, and heightening sensitivity to diversity through the liberal arts, Tokyo Tech strives to open up new dimensions by making each occasion productive. In an inclusive environment, Tokyo Tech staff and students engage regularly with external constituents to jointly create an image of a brighter, better future.
