Message from the President on the April 14 earthquake

Huge earthquakes and aftershocks have shaken Japan’s southern island of Kyushu since the 14th of April, as you know. IUJ is quite far from the Kyushu area (approx. 900 kms), and we have not been affected. We are continuing to perform our educational and research activities as usual.

We have received many messages through email, social media, etc. from international colleagues, friends, and alumni who are worrying about us. We appreciate your messages of concern, good wishes, and prayers.

We would like to express our deep sympathy to IUJ students, alumni and their families, our global partnership companies, and all the victims who have suffered from this disaster.

We pray for the safety of the victims and the speedy recovery of the affected areas.
