Waseda University has been supported by the contribution from many Alumni and charitable people for many years.
It is owing to this good will that we have graduated a number of promising students to the world and have created the remarkable history and tradition until now.
These days, Japan has been in critical circumstances due to prolonged , confused politics and a slumping economy. In addition to the Earthquake in eastern part of Japan , the nuclear power plant disaster in Fukushima and the following natural disasters such as heavy rain, brought about serious damage. These facts urged us to reflect seriously how science and technology, and the social system should be ; moreover, what the role
of researchers should be and even how we should live.
At the same time, we strongly felt that environmental or energy problems which should be solved on a worldwide scale was more serious than we had imaged.
Due to these critical circumstances, universities which have pursued the truth are required to play an aggressive role to create a new era .
We are strongly aware that we must be at the front of this progress to fulfill the important mission which is the obligation of universities these days .
For this purpose, we need to foster students who are able to consider and solve the new problems independently.
Although we have been doing our best to realize this by aquiring the state funds , reducing costs and heightening work efficiency , we still need, not only to raise a huge amount of funds, but also other various kinds of cooperation .
Your understanding for our social mission and support is highly appreciated .
