Office of the President
In the light of increasing global competition, the University of Tokyo aspires to firmly establish its position as one of the world's premier and most influential universities.
In 2004, the University of Tokyo became a National University Corporation. With greater independence as well as increased responsibility in determining its academic and financial destiny, the University of Tokyo was required to develop a comprehensive strategy and take bold action, with emphasis on increasing its global exposure.
The President's Council, composed of a limited number of distinguished members from around the world, was established to provide assistance to the president of the University of Tokyo in developing the University's strategy.
The Council's mission and primary areas of support include, but are not limited to:
・ reviewing and advising on the University's expressed aspirations and strategies,
・ discussing and providing direction for achieving specific actions,
・ advising on development of the university endowment and
・ assisting in the development of global networks.
