Carving out new horizons through sports

President Koji Gushiken

Since our foundation in 1891, Nippon Sport Science University has continued to foster human beings capable of meeting challenges in the fields of sport education, health and welfare, while nurturing students to attain the universal goal of a healthy mind and body.

Following the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, the university has been cultivating outstanding athletes and has been contributing immensely to equipping Japanese athletes with the skills to compete on the global stage.

As a result, athletes with Nippon Sport Science University ties have brought home 128 gold, silver and bronze medals, which accounts for a quarter of the medals won by Japanese athletes.

This history and tradition of world-renowned achievements continue to bring glory to Nippon Sport Science University.

In 2020, Japan will once again host the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. We view this event as a new turning point in our history for actively pursuing innovative approaches that help us shape the future.

Nippon Sport Science University's new mission is to elevate possibilities through the common universal culture of sport to carve out a whole new world in which people can live happy and enriching lives.

Based on the keywords "sport," "body," and "life," we will work to expand and deepen our range of academic offerings while demonstrating our capability as a comprehensive university dedicated to the arts and science with focus on the physical body. In order to continue making great strides on the global stage, we will work together with our faculty to promote initiatives in education, research and social contribution.
