Hiroshima Jogakuin Foundation was established in 1886 by a Japanese Christian Minister Teikichi Sunamoto with the support of Methodist Church in the US. The next year, he invited Miss Nanny Gaines, a young missionary from the US, to be the first principal of the institution. She started Early Child Education for women to be kindergarten teachers. Hiroshima Jogakuin Foundation expanded its institution, adding Higher Education in 1949 with Departments of Literature and Home Economics.
In 2012, to cope with urgent needs of global citizenship and women leaders, HJU started a new curriculum in a new structure consisting of the Faculty of Liberal Arts and the Faculty of Human Life Studies (Fashion Design, Architecture, Nutrition, Early Child Education). The total enrollment including international students is approximately 1830.
The five key concepts characterizing HJU are; Christianity, Women, Hiroshima, Peace and Cosmopolitanism. The aim of HJU, from its very beginning, has been to nurture young women with the mind “three Hs” (Head, Hands, and Heart) in accordance with the principles of Christianity. On that basis, HJU encourages students not only to strive for the mastery of academic knowledge and skills for their own career, but also very importantly to nurture themselves for the purpose of serving others.
