With regard to the conventional admissions systems and procedures, in which student selection is conducted using the same process as that adopted for the general entrance examination, the entrance examination for recommended students, and the Admission-Office (AO) entrance examination, we will further pursue reforms aimed at fulfilling the purpose of selection for each examination to the fullest extent possible. We will also explore new mechanisms for actively inviting a diverse range of talented students from Japan and abroad.
In light of the educational philosophy and goals of each undergraduate and graduate school, we will further clarify the qualities of the students that we seek to attract and comprehensively study the correlation between these qualities and the activities undertaken during university and after graduation by the students who have been admitted to date under the various entrance examination systems. Based on the results of this study, we will implement the necessary systemic reforms, identify students from Japan and abroad who have the requisite qualities, and investigate what methods we can employ to proactively recruit them. In doing this, we aim to create a well-balanced space in which a diverse range of talented students from Japan and other parts of the world can enroll and engage in studies.
