Rikkyo Started an Initiative to Accept Students from Ukraine.
Rikkyo University, in cooperation with Pathways Japan (PJ), a general incorporated association, and the Japan International Christian University Foundation (JICUF), has launched an initiative to accept five international students from Ukraine in September 2022. As a start, a welcome reception was held on September 14 at the Ikebukuro campus.
Rikkyo University has declared the " Rikkyo University Declaration of Human Dignity" in 2021, confirming that Rikkyo University should contribute to valuing human dignity. Rikkyo University's decision to accept students at this time is based on this declaration. This is also an implementation of the founding spirit of Rikkyo University, "To seek universal and divine truth, for our world, society, and neighbors.” Rikkyo is considering continuing this initiative in the future, with the support of donations from alumni and supporters.
