The United Nations Academic Impact Report on Activities 2021


In May 2019, our university joined the United Nations Academic Impact (hereinafter, UNAI). UNAI is a global initiative to pursue social contributions of universities with an aim to align the activities of institutions of higher education around the world with the United Nations.
Since our university conducts various education and research as well as community contributions related to the UNAI, we participate in 4 of 10 Principles of the UNAI.

Four Academic Impact Principles

  • Principle 6: A commitment to encouraging global citizenship through education
  • Principle 8: A commitment to addressing issues of poverty through education
  • Principle 9: A commitment to promoting sustainability through education
  • Principle 10: A commitment to promoting inter-cultural dialogue and understanding, and the unlearning of intolerance, through education

These four principles are in line with the founding principles of our university.
