Tokyo Tech is united in an effort to strengthen its teaching, learning, and research capabilities. The establishment of our six new Schools, the expert-studded Institute for Liberal Arts, and the interdisciplinary Institute of Innovative Research are just some signs of this remarkable unity.
In order to achieve recognition as one of the world’s top research universities by 2030, a year shy of the Institute’s 150th anniversary, we must strive to carry this momentum forward, combining the collective strength achieved through organizational reform with the phenomenal individual strengths of Tokyo Tech’s students, faculty, and staff members.
Workshops were recently held to visualize the future of the Institute, and what resulted was a vision that resonates across all generations and specializations: each member of Tokyo Tech stands firmly at the forefront of creativity, and the Institute will continue into the future as a hub of cutting-edge knowledge that seeks to ensure the prosperity and well-being of the world with the power of science and technology.
The direction of the Institute’s reforms and the results of these workshops are encapsulated in the "spirit" and "action" required to realize this vision, which together form the "Tokyo Tech 2030" statement.
I encourage you to embrace "an alternate future" and actively "pursue, engage, and transfer" in order to generate significant change in society, and to ensure that we become the Tokyo Tech that we all envision.
