Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

- Through the strengths manifested in a comprehensive university, and with the school motto “Mastery for Service”, Kwansei Gakuin University continues to create more links with the community, industries and the international community in the promotion and reinforcement of sustainable development.
