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.
