To all those affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria
Rikkyo University is deeply saddened by the tragic loss of more than 35,000 lives in the massive earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on February 6, 2023. The members of our community extend our deepest sympathies to the victims, their families, and all those affected by the disaster.
Rikkyo University conducts student exchanges with our partner university in Turkey, as well as academic and research collaborations with institutions in the affected areas, especially in the field of archaeology and historical studies. We pray that our friends and all others in Turkey and Syria will be able to return to a peaceful life as soon as possible.
