Josho Gakuen Educational Foundation was founded in 1922 originally as Kansai Engineering Technical School. Our founding mission was to develop specialists with practical skills who can take an active role in various fields. This mission was then passed on to other schools of our group, namely Osaka Institute of Technology and Josho Gakuen High School. To meet society's demand for new types of human resources, we also added Setsunan University and Hiroshima International University to our group. More recently in April 2011, we established Josho Gakuen Junior High School. Two years later, Josho Gakuen merged with Josho Keiko Gakuen in April 2013. We have now developed into a comprehensive group of schools, consisting of three universities, two high schools and two junior high schools, with a total enrollment of approximately 23,000 students. The total number of graduates from our group schools to date has reached about 273,000, and many of them are playing a leading role in the academic, industrial and governmental sectors.
In 2012, we set forth our grand vision, called "J-Vision 2022," targeting the upcoming centennial of our group's founding. And in 2014,we revised this vision to "New J-Vision 22" inheriting the spirit,for the purpose of promoting a more transparent management and achieving a more attractive education with a good balance both qualitatively and quantitatively.Our key words are "cooperation" and "strategy". By sharing this vision with all members of the faculty and school staff, we are determined to promote education that is catered to the era of globalization, while helping each school in our group to fully exhibit its originality.
If this website can create a better understanding of our group, we would be more than grateful.
