Purpose of establishment:
The University of Tsukuba aims at establishing free
exchange and close relationships in both basic and
applied sciences with educational and research
organizations and academic communities in Japan and
overseas. While developing these relationships, we
intend to pursue education and research to cultivate
men and women with creative intelligence and rich
human qualities.
The University of Tsukuba endeavors to contribute to
the progress of science and culture. Formerly,
Japanese universities tended to remain cloistered in
their own narrow, specialized fields, creating
polarization, stagnation in education and research and
alienation from their communities.
The University of Tsukuba has decided to function as a
university which is open to all within and outside of
Japan. Toward this end,the university has made it its
goal to develop an organization better suiting the
functions and administration with a new concept of
education and research highly international in
character, rich in diversity and flexibility and
capable of dealing sensitively with the changes
occurring in contemporary society. To realize this,
it has vested in its staff and administrative
authorities the powers necessary to carry out these
