PresidentThank you for your interest in Miyagi University. I am deeply honored to serve as the 5th President and 2nd Chairman of this outstanding institution. Universities nationwide face formidable challenges and must take prompt action. Society expects each university to use its unique strengths to respond to society's needs and requests. With this in mind, I feel the weight of responsibility as I lead the school.

Under the leadership of former presidents, the university has been a vibrant hub for learning and inspiring research. It has been recognized for its contributions to local communities based on its mission and goal of focusing on fostering human resources with a hospitality consciousness, an amenity sensitiveness, and a mix of highly specialized expertise and practical skills. These have enabled the school to lead in the development of the region and to play an active role in the world. I have determined to follow their path and run the university by applying far-sighted measures to meet society's requests in this new era.

My urgent agenda as the President is to carry out the reforms that my predecessor, Masaru Nishigaki, designed and to bring about a successful rebirth of the organization on the occasion of the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the school's founding. At Miyagi University, we look forward to continuing to produce robust results to meet social needs as a university focused first and foremost on education. We will enhance our freshman-core courses - foundational education program - and other courses by reorganizing the institution to expand students’ intellectual horizons. We will also be a leader in improving the university admission process. Thank you very much for your continuous support and understanding.

Miyagi Prefecture

Where Industry and Research Come Together for the Benefit of the People

 

Located in the heart of Tohoku, northeastern Japan, Miyagi prefecture is a pivotal cultural, industrial and academic hub for the region. Formerly the feudal domain of Lord Masamune Date, Miyagi is home to one of the first global research missions sent from Japan during the Tokugawa Era (1600-1867). Led by Tsunenaga Hasekura in 1613, the mission traveled the globe for 7 years in search of potential trade and commerce opportunities. The spirit of this global mission is embodied by Miyagi prefecture's business, government and academic leaders alike as they play an active role in the evolving global economy and society. Today's Miyagi prefecture is made up of 36 municipalities. A kaleidoscope in topographical, cultural and culinary diversity the regions of Miyagi range from inland mountain communities, vast plains renowned throughout Japan for their rice production, wetlands internationally recognized under the Ramsar Convention, to coastal communities rich in marine biodiversity and resources. Visitors to Miyagi are sure to find their own unique niche within the prefecture's diversity. And in time, a place they will call home.

MIYAGI UNIVERISTY CAMPUSES

Environment is a priority at Miyagi University. We believe that healthy minds, creative thought and the ability to turn those thoughts into positive action are nurtured by one's environment; thus our two campuses have been designed to meet this end. Within walking distance from the Miyagi Prefectural Public Library, Taiwa Campus is an aesthetic fusion of a wooded natural environment and sophisticated contemporary architecture. To the south is Taihaku Campus which harmonizes rural landscape with cutting edge academic facilities. Both campuses are strategically located within urban center limits yet easily accessible to surrounding rural communities so as to ensure that students and staff are connected to both urban and rural communities throughout Miyagi.
