Our DEI Goals
The world does not stay still and sometimes faces times of upheaval.
Keio was established in 1858 during Japan’s modernization just before the Meiji Restoration.
Keio’s philosophy, expressed as expressed as “Independence and self-respect”, “Learning while teaching, teaching while learning”, “Collaboration within the company”, “Creating history to define the future”, by Yukichi Fukuzawa, the founder of Keio, has been cultivated by people in Japan for more than 160 years to survive the turbulent eras of Meiji, Taisho, and Showa. When we think about what these key words mean, we realize that they correspond to the very essence of the contemporary concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I).
Now, the world is changing faster and at a larger scale than ever before, and global paradigm shifts continue to occur in environmental, population, and climate studies, as well as fields of economics and public health, etc. We are faced with complex issues that are intertwined with each other. Now is the time to remember the key words left by Fukuzawa, which can guide us to survive these turbulent times.
The Faculty of Science and Technology and the Graduate School of Science and Technology at Keio University have established the Keio Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Goals (KeiDGs), which reflect the essence of Fukuzawa's words. The KeiDGs reinterpret DE&I as diversity, equity, and freedom in science-based education and research. With KeiDGs as our action goals, the Faculty of Science and Technology and the Graduate School of Science and Technology, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2039, will continue to shine as a place for open learning and exploration, and as a place to encounter and interact with people with diverse backgrounds.
