UTokyo President’s Log

Ever since assuming the leadership of the University of Tokyo, I’ve wanted to share my thoughts and activities as president with members of the university, as well as the larger community outside our institution. With my research field being connected to the ocean, I’d always kept a log during my time conducting surveys and being out at sea. Now, having embarked on my journey as UTokyo’s skipper, I would like to share with all of you my record of this latest voyage, through the UTokyo President’s Log.

Teruo Fujii, 31st President of the University of Tokyo

The center will focus on conducting cutting-edge research related to diversity, equity and inclusion, while applying those outcomes to the support services it provides; unresolved issues identified in the field will then be fed back for further study. By creating this virtuous circle of research and support, IncluDE aims to help realize a more just society.
