  • Elevate learners in degree and non-degree programs through an educational experience that focuses on the development of global competencies, critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, creativity, artistry, leadership, interpersonal intelligence, integrity, research, and practical skills.
  • Furnish a global, multicultural, and inclusive environment composed of students, staff, and outstanding faculty from the U.S., Japan, and other parts of the world.
  • Offer individualized student attention, smaller class sizes, and regular interactions with faculty.
  • Develop pathways to careers and graduate studies through TUJ stakeholders and connections.
  • Forge cooperative relationships and engage with partners in education, government, and industry.
