Founding Principle

The pioneers and founders of Senshu University, Nagatane Soma, Inajiro Tajiri, Tanetaro Megata, and Shigetada Komai were sent to the United States by the central and local governments of Japan at the dawn of the Meiji era (1868-1912) to receive training in Western academic disciplines. The establishment of the forerunner to the University was motivated by the founders' strong wish to share the learning that they had acquired abroad with youth in Japan.

The University's founding principle lies in the founders' dedication to serving the public good and repaying their indebtedness to society through the education and guidance of today's young persons facing the challenges of the modern age. Our educational atmosphere fosters thrift, fortitude, sincerity and industry in our students.
