Blessed with abundant nature and referred to as the country of seiryu (clear water), for historical and geographical reasons, the Gifu region has developed and passed down a diverse culture and technology that brought eastern and western cultures together. Having inherited these attributes from the Gifu region, Gifu University trains students, who will later actively participate in society. The university provides a place where students learn, explore, and contribute in an environment conducive to exploration and growth. The university has adopted the principle that it is an integral part of a local community, serving as an institution that learns, explores, and contributes.
Applying the distinguishing feature of having all undergraduate and graduate programs located on a single campus for educational and research activities, Gifu University provides an education focused on training highly skilled professionals. The university is committed to conducting high-quality research that is the foundation of that education and to achieving internationalization rooted in the local community. As a core hub for reinvigorating local communities, the university also plays a role in regional revitalization through such efforts as providing local communities with the benefits derived from the above activities.See more
