◆Taisho University
Taisho University is a university run by the four founding sects of the Tendai sect, the Shingon sect Toyozan sect, the Shingon sect Chizan sect, the Jodo sect, and the Ji sect. Underpinning this spirit of collaboration is the founding philosophy of “practicing wisdom and compassion,” which the university advocated at the time of its founding in 1926. Based on the school’s founding philosophy, we are developing our educational and research activities with an educational vision of “becoming four people” that is rooted in the Buddhist spirit of compassion, self-lighting, the middle path, and coexistence. In addition, our university’s “Regional Strategic Human Resource Development Project to Envision the Future of Regions in a New Era” was selected as part of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s “Human Resource Development Project to Support a Knowledge-Intensive Society” in 2020.
