Message from the President


From the 2016 academic year, Tokushima University adopted a six-faculty system, adding a new Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences, Faculty of Science and Technology, and a Faculty of Bioscience and Bioindustry to the existing Faculties of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Tokushima University selected priority support (1) established by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, aiming to become a university that contributes to the region, conducting world-class research in specific fields. One of the characteristics of Tokushima University is that it is endowed with science teachers who undertake education and research in medicine, dentistry and pharmaceutics, science and technology, and biotic resources, as well as teachers of the humanities related to integrated science. Leveraging the strengths of the university, we aim to become a world-class university in ten years’ time, offering solutions to the problems of humankind from the region. In order to achieve this, all of the faculty and staff must constantly work to reform the university. Support from the outside is also essential for development of the university, and so we ask for your continued patronage.
