“It is said that Heaven does not create one man above or below another man.” So begins Yukichi Fukuzawa’s book, An Encouragement of Learning, written at the beginning of the Meiji period. Here Fukuzawa expounded the importance of freedom, equality, and human rights, leading the nation into a new era—the modern Japan we know today. Keio University is where his educational philosophy continues to live on today.
The lifelong bonds and sense of solidarity between alumni, as well as the strong connection between alumni and the university, are distinctive features and a great source of pride for Keio University. This strong network among our graduates is part of what makes Keio truly unique.
Keio University operates six major campuses in Tokyo and Kanagawa, along with five other campuses with specific academic or research functions. Keio’s network of affiliated schools extends beyond its university campuses and includes one fully accredited high school in the State of New York.
