TUJ pursues various community-oriented activities with the overall goal of deepening exchanges between our students and staff and the people of the area. TUJ has a long history of community relations highlighted by its 2006 agreement on joint activities with Minato city. The agreement covered various areas: sharing different cultures, assisting the foreign community, supporting English education, providing adult education, opening the TUJ library and participating in local events. Although we continue to help with a few Minato programs, we have been working on creating a good relationship with our new community, Setagaya, through activities such as organizing cross cultural activities for elementary and junior high schools, helping the city with recruiting volunteers for various events, and participating in local festivals. We hope to develop more activities to benefit the community while utilizing our uniqueness as an American university with students, faculty and staff from all over the world.
