Osaka University offers the following educational programs for students who wish to build further upon the experience of living in a global environment in our new student housing. These programs are aimed at helping students develop into professionals who will "think globally and act locally" with 1) the sophistication needed to make sound social judgments grounded in a broad perspective, 2) a global outlook that will enable them to have meaningful interactions with people from different cultural backgrounds, and 3) the design-mindedness and unfettered imagination to envision wide-ranging, interdisciplinary networks.
