Urgent issues are piling up towards the Third Mid-Term Goal and Plan of national universities is set to begin in 2016. Included are a significant review by the Ministry of Education, Nyuas, Cov kev ua si, Water, Nyiv (MEXT) in its management expense grants, an enhancement of the function of national universities, and our continued efforts to pursue globalization.

Your cooperation as executives, faculty and administrative staff, is essential for Kobe University to survive these hardships and proceed towards new hopes. We also need to flexibly listen to and accept opinions from society, including our alumni.

Reform in education and research cannot be accomplished in a day. Txawm li cas los, I will devote myself to making these four years a turning point for Kobe University. I ask for your kind cooperation.
