Based on a foundation of "Freedom and Enlightenment," the faculty and students of Shizuoka University strive for the "Creation of the Future," a future that is peaceful and abundant. In line with this vision, we develop individuals who can assume responsibility for the future of the planet , equipped with an international outlook toward the nations of Asia and the rest of the world, possessing advanced specialty expertise and a strong willingness to face challenges without fear of failure. These individuals will be the learned minds equipped with abundant humanity who will lead society in a wide range of fields and continue to pursue solutions to the problems of the 21st century.
To cultivate wisdom and abundant sensibility, we provide students with opportunities for field work, manufacturing experience, local community development, and contact with schools and regional facilities where they can grow alongside children. The human potential stimulated by these opportunities will be reflected in students' study and research in basic and applied fields.
We seek students who are not afraid to fail; who possess a youthful capacity to face challenges; who listen to the opinions of others, learn from them, and seek compromise; and who have a rich capacity for self-assertion.
We cultivate students who seek to build a recycling-oriented society in which people and nature can coexist, and who possess the multidisciplinary capacity to respond to the needs of global society.
Based on a foundation in field sciences directly linked to society, we provide broad-based education encompassing both biological science and environmental science, centering on bioproduction.
We seek students possessing the aptitude and fundamental academic ability necessary for the study of natural science and life science, and a desire to solve environmental problems relating to the survival of humanity, to develop sustainable bioproduction technologies, and to explore biochemical science.
