Message from the President

ISHIHARA Osamu, President
ISHIHARA Osamu, President

I am honored and privileged to serve as the fifth President of Chubu University (CU). I truly believe that CU, with over 11,000 students and over 1,500 faculty and staff, is a preeminent institution of academic and scholarly excellence. Together, the students, faculty, and staff are fostering community service for the 310,000 people of the city of Kasugai, the 7.5 million people of Aichi Prefecture, the 20 million people of the Chubu Region (Central Japan), the 130 million people of Japan, and even the 7 billion people across the globe.

The history of Chubu University dates back to 1938, when Professor Kohei Miura, the first President of CU, founded a technical institution in Nagoya. Later in 1964 the Chubu Institute of Technology (CIT) was established in the city of Kasugai. Then, in 1984, CIT became a university and changed its name to Chubu University. Recently, Chubu University celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014.

Chubu University, in addition to two high schools (Chubu University Daiichi High School and Chubu University Haruhigaoka High School), and one junior high school (Chubu University Haruhigaoka Junior High School), is governed by Chubu University Educational Corporation, which celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2018.

Chubu University has three campuses, including a main campus in Kasugai, one in Nagoya, and another in Ena City, Gifu Prefecture. Chubu University, Kasugai(CUK)has seven Colleges: Engineering, Business Administration and Information Science, International Studies, Humanities, Bioscience and Biotechnology, Life and Health Sciences, and Contemporary Education, as well as six Graduate Schools: Engineering, Business Administration and Information Science, Global Humanics, Bioscience and Biotechnology, Life and Health Sciences, and Education. Chubu University, Nagoya (CUN)offers evening classes, while Chubu University, Ena(CUE)is a suburban campus designed to accommodate short-term programs, such as athletic training camps and orientations for first-year students.

It is my mission to lead the university by building an enriching educational environment for students, faculty, and staff as we move forward into the next 50 years of our Chubu University history.

I sincerely hope that Chubu University will continue to be a place of learning for students, parents, professors, researchers, staff members, graduates, neighbors, and visitors. Chubu University provides an opportunity to come together to learn from each other. Together, we make Chubu University a great and comfortable place. And we will make CU a HUB of knowledge as the name CHUBU University shows.
