However, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented a heretofore unimagined and unprecedented crisis to society, unequivocally forcing educational, research, and medical institutions to make drastic changes to adapt and making it difficult to predict what will happen moving forward. Amidst these circumstances, Keio University and the Tokyo Dental College have reviewed the schedule that was proposed at the beginning of negotiations and have decided to continue discussions indefinitely without setting any definite dates or targets.
Moving forward, both Keio University and the Tokyo Dental College, with respect to both institutions' histories and current situations, in order to create a mutually beneficial merger that, above all, prioritizes the students of these schools, will endeavor to deepen their positive cooperation in the fields of education, research, medicine, and corporate management as they continue the merger.
