All freshers and supporters of the newly-born Eikei University of Hiroshima (EUH)

I cannot wait! 
I cannot wait to see you, I cannot wait to connect with you, and I cannot wait to draw an ideal picture of the new university with you. 
Connecting and drawing we will do there all day. Connecting means creating a system. Drawing an ideal connection means design. The Department of Social System Design, EUH, is for that. 
It is one and only department all over the world to deliver change makers to co-design social systems.
April 1, 2021. EUH starts as one social system. The designers are you all. We start to connect with all at the city, in Japan, and over the world.
We will count down together every day for 45 days until the EUH opens. We open EUH to craft together optimal social systems to make Japan and the world happier than today.

40 more days!

Think before you speak. Read before you think. — Fran Lebowitz

I’ve decided to pass on this nice bit of teacherly advice to the first class of Eikei University. It’s true: you can rarely come up with interesting ideas all by yourself. Instead, these often come from dialogue, and reading is one of the best methods for engaging in deep dialogues. Even better, by reading, you can interact with various conversation partners across space and time. So I’d encourage you to try to find one book that really catches you and read through it before you join Eikei. I’m looking forward to reading, thinking, and having interesting conversations with you all!

To challengers, Eikei University of Hiroshima will open in 35 days. We, as challengers, are now preparing for it.

The university is not a place for you just to receive some kinds of services. The university is the place for us, students, faculty members and staffs to build the new knowledge and new society. What do you want to do? Faculty members and staffs want to support your aspiration.

There is no precedent, we are free to start anything, that’s Eikei University. But we will also face some problems after Eikei opens. Let’s enjoy them and solve them together! We all are looking forward to seeing you. See you at Eikei in 35 days!

We held placement test for "Intensive English Program(IEP)"

IEP will be provided in the initial half of the first year to develop English proficiency to the level which enables students to take courses in liberal arts subjects in English after that.
Students are divided into small classes based on their level (beginner, intermediate, advanced), practicing their listening, writing, reading, speaking, and presentation skills in an English-only environment.

20 more days!

We are accelerating various preparations for the inauguration of the University and getting ready for our founding students to arrive.

20 days until the EUH opens!

The day when you enter Eikei University of Hiroshima is just around the corner!  Are you well-prepared?
Your new university life will start with Intensive English Program (IEP) next month.  You are supposed to take exclusively English classes for the first 6 months.  IEP will definitely offer you a chance to be “fully immersed in English.” 
The lecturers are composed of diverse nationalities except Japanese bilingual lecturers.  Some of them do not speak Japanese, which will surely give you a great chance to explore diverse cultures.  
The main purpose of IEP is to develop your English proficiency into the level in which you can take any subject in English in the following quarters after going through this program.
I hope you will step out of your own world, move forward, and grow into a person who can play an active role globally in the world, using English as a means of global communication.  Another language you acquire will thoroughly change your view of the world.  As you understand other cultures, you will be able to broaden your own perspectives. 
Try various things that you can while you are at Eikei University of Hiroshima.  Any experience which may result in failure will help you develop into a well-rounded person. 
Now, let's row out into a new ocean of knowledge and excitement together!

5 more days!

Welcome to Eikei University of Hiroshima.

Now it's time to start a new challenge. Are you ready?

Eikei University is a platform for Social Innovation. You will practice social system design based on this place. In practice, you will surely hit a number of walls. And you will have to do a lot of trial and error. However, we believe that learning experience in this place will be a valuable asset to you.

Let's challenge while having fun! We all are looking forward to seeing you. See you at Eikei in 5 days!
