President: Masumi Kindaichi

The goal of the University of Nagano is to become a university for cultivating leaders with a global outlook capable of contributing to the region.
All students will stay at the dormitory in their first year, and participate in short-term training as part of an "Overseas Program" in their second year.
The university embraces dialog, much like at Plato's ancient Academy with seminars for special subjects, and small classes that ensure each and every student learns the true value of life. I warmly welcome all young students from Nagano Prefecture, Japan and overseas, to the tranquil surroundings of the University of Nagano to discuss a broad range of topics as they work to bring their dreams to life.
