【Comments on assuming the post】
I assumed the Board of Trustees chairperson post on September 25, 2020, taking over the role from Noriyoshi Shiraishi, who passed away in August this year in the middle of his term of office. I will strive to contribute to the development of Rikkyo Educational Corporation, which will mark the 150th anniversary in 2024 of its founding, by firmly supporting the education environment, research and study for all schools under the corporation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
