Japan Women's University Statement on SDGs

Japan Women's University is a higher education institution established in 1901 by education reformist Jinzo Naruse during the Meiji Era, a time when women had few opportunities to receive a higher education, for the purpose of removing gender barriers and help motivated women discover and develop their unique abilities.

More than a century has passed since the foundation of JWU, and today, our university’s mission to empower women has become stronger than ever. Moreover, we have pioneered a wide range of new research areas that contribute to social improvement. In addition, our founder's belief that women play an important role in achieving a peaceful world has been achieved and blossomed at Japan Women’s University.

The Sustainable Development Goals adopted at the UN Summit in 2015 are international goals that must be achieved by 2030. Among these 17 goals, there are many that Japan Women’s University can contribute to through various proposals, activities, and human resource development.

Japan Women's University declares that it will continue to work with students, faculty and staff, graduates, and related municipalities/companies/and local communities to help support SDGs and create a sustainable society.
