Our founding spirit consists of three main principles: Christianity, liberalism and internationalism. Doshisha was founded by Joseph Hardy Neesima in 1875 as the first Japanese school advocating the teachings of Christianity. He founded the school to make it a place for young people from all parts of the world to seek truth, pursue knowledge and independence, and nurture lifelong friendship. Our students have inherited this spirit as a tradition of this university, and through this spirit we have constructed an international network with 172 universities in 41 countries. Furthermore, Doshisha highly values the presence of international students as they bring international viewpoints and diversity to the campus and thereby enrich the university culture. We therefore are eager to welcome and support international students.
