DEVELOPING FUTURE LEADERS

The Graduate School of Advanced Integrated Studies in Human Survivability (GSAIS / Shishu-Kan) is a new graduate school and PhD program that focuses on the development of future top-level leaders to resolve complex global issues. We live in the 21st century, where societal, socio-economic, cultural and industrial structures are becoming increasingly complex. This complexity brings with it a wide array of problems that must be tackled. To address these issues, an innovative system is necessary that is able to adapt to the ever-changing global challenges that we face. This, in turn, raises the need for individuals who can lead the process of implementing such new systems.

GLOBAL OUTLOOK AND STRONG LEADERSHIP SKILLS

The GSAIS fosters these critical next-generation leaders. The educational program aids the development of individuals with a strong sense of responsibility, morality, and leadership. Students are trained to lead the process of creating necessary new systems for the survival and harmonious coexistence of humanity. These students are expected to develop an integrated global outlook and gain the skills necessary to resolve worldwide problems. Through demonstrating their ability to resolve these complex issues, students qualify to become future global leaders.
