Mission Statement

Founded in1874, Aoyama Gakuin is a comprehensive institute comprised of schools from kindergarten to graduate school. As a university of natural and social sciences, Aoyama Gakuin University provides “human education” that enables students to share a culturally broad system of values with a strong emphasis on education in English. The role of the International Exchange Center (IEC) at Aoyama Gakuin University is to provide educational support related to the internationalization of the university as well as to support the development of students to become global citizens. The main work of the IEC consists of assisting both students going overseas and international students from overseas partner schools and approved institutions; as well as planning and operating intensive language training along with other programs and special events. Through these efforts it is the goal of the IEC to support globalization of the educational system of Aoyama Gakuin. The worldwide trend of globalization affects not only corporate activities and international relations, but should also impact the structure of university education and curricular content. With that in mind, the IEC strives to strengthen and expand collaboration between overseas universities and Aoyama Gakuin University while respecting the diverse cultures and traditions of each country as well as the customs and values of our students.
