About the University

The University of Shizuoka was founded in 1987, by unifying the Shizuoka College of Pharmacy, Shizuoka Women's University and Shizuoka Women's Junior College. There are five departments and each graduate schools at the University. Our motto is 'Developing the individual, strengthening bonds and transmitting knowledge.'

Our staff members from the faculty members to the office workers together help make the University's atmosphere filled with cheer and the hope of fulfilled dreams.
