A university is a center for inheriting knowledge and
creating new knowledge. To inherit knowledge, it is
critical to learn both basic knowledge from a wide
range of fields and deep knowledge from specialized
fields. However, acquiring the systematic body of
knowledge that human beings have built up through
the ages cannot possibly be completed in the few years
At a university, it is important to change from a stance of passive learning to one of actively seeking knowledge on your own, so that you acquire learning techniques while learning knowledge.
Creating knowledge requires ascertaining the current state of knowledge, and from there, taking one more step. In other words, creating knowledge is research. To carry out good research, it is vital to have the ability to set your own challenges and to learn to pursue the question all the way to the bottom.
As a result of inheriting and creating knowledge, men and women are fostered to actively work as researchers, or to leave the university and to lead the next generation of society. Let us truly make the university a place to inherit knowledge and create knowledge by uniting, students and teachers together, as one.
