What is the 100th Anniversary Fund-Raising Campaign by the Osaka University Foundation for the Future aiming for?

Make Osaka University one of the world's top 10 research universities by its 100th anniversary in 2031.

In order to achieve this dream, Foundation for the Future is working on increasing support for students, promoting the globalization of OU campuses, and improving campus environments. As a part of such promotional activities, the foundation has launched 100th anniversary fund-raising.

In order to make Osaka University more attractive so students and graduates will feel greater attachment and pride in their university and so the university can win further confidence of local people and society, we request your continued support.
