Message from the President
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Rissho University.
Rissho, one of the oldest private universities in Japan, will mark its 140th anniversary in 2012. The founding spirit of our university has been rephrased in contemporary terms by Tanzan Ishibashi, the 16th president of Rissho University and the 55th Prime Minister of Japan.
Rissho exists for its students. To work for them is the most important obligation of our faculty. In an effort to achieve this overarching mission, we provide quality education for all students so that they may be equipped, as well as possible, with stronger values, a greater sense of cultivation, and a high degree of professionalism.
President of Rissho University
Kazumi Yamazaki (Professor, Faculty of Business Administration)
