Message from the President

A message from Tohoku University's President Susumu Satomi.

Welcome to Tohoku University!

In the more than 100 years since Tohoku University was founded in 1907, the constant goal has been to become one of the world's great research universities.

As the 21st President of this university I pledge to continue this pursuit of international excellence in education. We take great pride in the past successes of our students and faculty. Their innovations in science and engineering have helped make the world a better place in which to live.

We learned through the 3-11 disaster that there is so much more we can do to develop new technologies to make the entire world safer and more environmentally friendly. At the same time, while medical support is critical in the aftermath of a disaster, we also know that the arts give us the medium of expression in which to heal the human heart. Thus at Tohoku University we are committed to graduating students with a well rounded, complete education.

We welcome you to join us in pursuing this great challenge.
