As international affairs become more complex than ever before, many problems have emerged, and thus a more overarching and multi-disciplinary approach is required in order to resolve them. It is hoped that we can promote the values of the APIC-Tsuda University and together cooperate and supplement our agreement. We are proud to promote international cooperation inside and outside of Japan in coordination with Tsuda University.

The president of Tsuda University commented:

We are delighted to have signed the MoU with APIC. Our new established partnership on education with APIC counts as our third including those with Sophia University and Reitaku University. This is the first time that an MoU has been signed between APIC and a woman’s college. Tsuda University began as Zyosi-Eigakuzyuku established by Umeko Tsuda, with the aim of public cooperation and support. It would be with great pride and hope if women living in the 21st century could further contribute to the peace, happiness, and security through such partnerships. I appreciate APIC’s tremendous support in providing us lecturers for lectures, symposia, and research initiatives, and for providing our students with opportunities for internship. Thank you.
