In 2004, Japan's system for evaluating the qualitative standards of university education changed, and since then, all universities have been required to have their educational and research standards evaluated by an independent evaluating agency certified by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology. Okinawa International University applied to the Japan University Accreditation Association (a certified evaluating agency) for evaluation and accreditation, and on March 22, 2005, was officially accredited as a university conforming to the Association's University Standards. The university was also issued a Certificate of University Accreditation and the Seal of University Accreditation.
This accreditation makes Okinawa International University the first accredited university in Okinawa. As a private university in Okinawa, we will continue to attach great importance to our educational goals and principles and will strive to still further raise our educational and research standards.
