KEIO 150th  LOGO

2008 has been an important year for Keio University as we celebrated our 150th anniversary with friends and partners from around the world and challenged ourselves to define how we will continue to evolve as we look ahead to our next 150 years.

In order to realize the founding principles of Yukichi Fukuzawa, who sought to nurture “leaders of society,” we aim to become an institution of world excellence which pursuits “Open and Global quality ,” as well as a leader in the international community, across all fields including education, research, medicine and health services, social contribution, student support, and international collaboration.

Through our 10-year 150th anniversary commemorative project, launched in October 2005, we will transform Keio into a university that will “design the future” of the world—and nurture leaders who will “design the future” of the world.

Thank you for your ongoing support and best wishes for 2009.
