Students are the main actors in the university. The Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the Faculty of Agriculture create an environment where all students feel comfortable.
The Mentor System, which began in April 2022, aims to resolve students’ problems through early detection by assigning a professor other than their supervisor as a mentor to students who belong to a laboratory. The Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the Faculty of Agriculture guarantee an environment where students can devote themselves to education and research to the best of their ability with peace of mind.
