Request for Support from the Public Policy Graduate School Fund

The Graduate School of Public Policy celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
Since its inception in April 2004, the Graduate School of Public Policy (GraSPP) has been producing professionals who lead government, local authorities, and the private sector through a balanced education in political science, law, and economics, and practical guidance from practitioner faculty.

Challenges that public policy must confront, such as rapid declines in birth rates and aging populations, global warming, technological innovation, and the internationalization of economic activities, are becoming increasingly complex by the day. Professionals in public policy are required to possess higher levels of knowledge and skills. The ability to collaborate with others to solve problems is also becoming increasingly important as various stakeholders address the challenges of public policy.

On the occasion of our 20th anniversary, we aim to reaffirm the mission of the graduate school and dedicate ourselves even more to nurturing global talents with flexible and creative thinking, international perspectives, and a deep understanding of diverse cultures and values.
This year, we are planning a number of public events. We would be delighted if many people could join us and learn about the wide range of research achievements at GraSPP.

We sincerely ask for your continued support.

Dean of the Graduate School of Public Policy
