At Nagasaki Wesleyan University, we see our mission as fostering the development of global citizens who will link local communities and the world. To that end, our programs emphasize not only the study of knowledge and technology related to social welfare, but also hands-on experience in the real world. Among other advantages, this approach provides an opportunity to master a broad array of communication skills, including proficiency in English and other languages.
Nagasaki Wesleyan University opened in 2002 in commemoration of the 120th anniversary of the founding of Chinzei Gakuin in response to the strong wishes and robust support of sister schools worldwide as well as its local community. The University’s parent organization, Chinzei Gakuin, an institution that continues to pursue its mission today, 125 years later, has long pursued the goal of educating students to love God and their fellow man in keeping with the two primary tenets of Christianity. We further developed that school motto for use in a university setting, adopting the cultivation of brotherly love, characterized by love of God and one’s fellow man, as NWU’s educational mission.
