- Why UTokyo need donation?
The University of Tokyo aims to become a university for the world, and we hope to work together with partners around the globe and across all areas of society to build a better and more equitable future for everyone. Today, appropriations from the state fiscal budget are inadequate for us to grow into world-class one and educate top-class innovative students since 2004.
