Features
Ochanomizu University was founded on November 29, 1875 as Tokyo Women’s Normal School, Japan’s first institution of higher education for women. In the over 141 years since, the university has forged a new path in education for women. Even when it was difficult for women to play a major role in the workforce, many graduates of this university were pursuing careers and becoming strong performers in a variety of fields. They continue to earn the deep respect of their peers, and have opened up doors to new opportunities for the women who follow.

In FY2016, the university began working on its third-period midterm plans and goals. We have taken this opportunity to add another goal to our existing mission of “cultivating global female leaders.” Based on this new goal—“promoting research and education that enable people to remain physically and mentally happy and healthy throughout their lives”—we have established the Human Life Innovation Development Research Organization. This is one of two outstanding research organizations at our university—the other being the Research Organization for the Promotion of Global Women’s Leadership that was launched in 2015—and integrates liberal arts and science. It includes the Institute for Human Life Innovation and the Institute for Education and Human Development, and promotes research aimed at solving various problems in our aging society with fewer children being born.
