A book about Yoshikazu Morita, KUFS’s Chancellor and Chair of the Board of Governors, and the remarkable progress of our university over the years was published.
Over 40 years have passed since Dr. Yoshikazu Morita inherited the Kyoto University of Foreign Studies since the sudden death of his father. Being an educationist rather than a business owner, he has poured his heart and soul into the development of this academic institution. At every commencement ceremony, Dr. Morita has told new students: “the path that connects you to the world starts here.” By “here” he means Kyoto, the center of Japanese culture, and our campus located in such a city. Just like he says, “I just love people and that’s why I stayed in the educational world this long,” Dr. Morita is always surrounded by people, and has been involved in exceptional numbers of educational associations and international activities.
“Kyoto University of Foreign Studies: Yoshikazu Morita” was published as Part Three of the storytelling series The History of Private Universities Woven by Leaders and will be available in the University Bookstore and bookstores in Kyoto city.
