Along with excellent teaching staff, all of the University's campuses are linked with other institutions and facilities for education and research and feature the latest facilities, equipment and so on for extracurricular activities. Providing steady education and research opportunities, Meiji University aims to make dramatic advances into the world as the top 21st-century urban university in Japan.
