Tohoku University was established in June 1907 and will celebrate its 115th founding anniversary in 2022. Since its founding as the third national university in Japan, Tohoku University has been engaged with society and has been supported by industry and the local community. Unlike other national universities established in the early 20th century, the university initiated an ‘Open Door’ policy, leading to its enrolling of both female students and international students.
In August 1922, the Faculty of Law and Letters was established. With the increase in the number of disciplines being taught, Tohoku University became a comprehensive university.
As part of the celebrations for the 115th anniversary of its founding, and for the 100th anniversary of its development into a comprehensive university, Tohoku University has decided to further deepen its ties with alumni both inside and outside Japan and to strive to make further contributions to society through the ‘knowledge’ it develops.
We look forward to your warm support and encouragement for the various projects and events that will be held from January 2022 to April 2023 as we celebrate together the anniversaries of the university’s founding and its development into a comprehensive university.
