Message from the President

Nakamura Gakuen began life as Fukuoka High School of Nutrition Studies, founded in 1954 by Professor Haru Nakamura. Professor Nakamura established this educational institution under the following three principles: 1. Never forget your origins, maintain and respect your own belief, be grateful at all times and work diligently 2. Physical forms are expressions of the soul 3. Education and research which unites academia and daily life We use these principles to combine human, social, cultural and specialist education into a broad range of comprehensive student-centered educational programs.

Over 30,000 students have graduated from our Junior College and 10,000 from our University, all of whom have been instilled with this spirit from our founding days. Our graduates have gone on to contribute to society in numerous ways, including as nutritionists, elementary school and kindergarten teachers, child care workers, civil servants and bank employees, and work in a variety of commercial fields, such as trading, distribution and foodstuffs. Nakamura Gakuen has gained a solid reputation in Japan for its high employment rate.

At Nakamura Gakuen, we take a different stance to traditional universities, which merely provide intellectual information and human resources to society. Our University, Junior College, Graduate School and research institutes make concerted efforts to contribute to the region, collaborate with industry and government and engage in international exchanges, with the ultimate goal of nurturing global human resources and local leaders.
