2 CHIBA UNIVERSITY 01-1. A Message from the President The history of Chiba University began with the founding around 140 years ago of the Chiba Normal School (the forebear institution of our Faculty of Education today) and the Chiba Public Hospital (the forebear institution of our School of Medicine, Faculty of Pharma- ceutical Sciences, and School of Nurs- ing). The Chiba Public Hospital became the Chiba Medical College in 1923, and

CHIBA UNIVERSITY

3 then 1949 saw our re-launch as Chiba University under the new, post-war system of education, with five faculties. The number of new undergraduate fac- ulties and postgraduate institutes that we added continued to grow along with Japan’s post-war recovery and rapid ex- pansion in population, and today Chiba University has developed into a large “comprehensive university,” with 9 fac- ulties and 11 graduate schools. In 2004 Chiba University reorganized itself under the National University Corpora- tion Act, becoming reincorporated as a “national university corporation.” Turning to our education philosophy, our aim is to foster professionals who “always aim higher” and who will tackle anything they do with integrity and a broad perspective.

To that end we are advancing strongly with programs to “internationalize” our education and research activities. We have put in place a support system for Chiba University students who undertake overseas study as part of their course, and we have also established a learning environment when students learn inde- pendently. Lastly, in order to generate research outcomes that will contribute to the better development of human society, we are vigorously promoting collaborative research projects with partners from around the world. Now that it has become a national university incorporation, for the sake of Chiba University’s further growth, not only are we strengthening our efforts to secure competitive external funds as well as partnerships with different sec- tions of the community, but we are also building up our partnerships in the are- as of education and research with other universities, including from overseas.

To that end we have actively committed to building the necessary administra- tive and operational structures and to further enhancing our management income and expenditure profile. This booklet explains the course of Chiba University’s development as well as the current state of its education and research organizations and interna- tional exchanges. More specifically in the area of education it also contains our undergraduate and postgraduate school admissions policy, as well as our policy on the conferment of degrees. With regard to administrative and operational areas, this booklet contains information on our fixed assets such as our land holdings and buildings; our budget including the management expenses grants that we receive; and our performance in securing competi- tive funds.

I hope that this booklet both helps you gain an overall picture of Chiba University today and serves as a tremendous resource for our further growth and development.

12 CHIBA UNIVERSITY Establishment of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Purpose of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences In the spirit of the university’s fun- damental principle to “Always aim higher,” the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences of Chiba University aims to train human resources who will be able to view phenomena from a broad, pluralist perspective that encom- passes global society, contemporary Japan and the local community and, with an understanding of both Japan and the world, will contribute to solv- ing complex problems that arise on a global scale, for which no single field of learning can provide answers.

This will require human resources who can apply their know-how and exper- tise to discover and resolve issues from a uniquely Japanese standpoint and share these solutions with the world.

Overview of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Unlike existing faculties where students deepen their specialist knowledge in a specific field of study, students at the Chiba University College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will build on their special- ist knowledge through their discovery of issues as they undertake a “blended” study of the fields of humanities, natu- ral science and life science and through the practical processes of finding solu- tions to these issues. We believe that this blending of global, Japanese, and scientific perspectives will offer new value in the meaning of education.

Moreover, to succeed in achieving this objective of nurturing the development of human resources, the College of Lib- eral Arts and Sciences will adopt a new approach to education where students will gain broad, deep insights through their blended study of science and the humanities rather than a specific specialized field, and these insights will become the foundation of their study which will be centered on both social learning that takes place in the world at large and independent learning. Through this approach, students will progressively acquire skills in the fol- lowing areas: .Analyzing Japan and the world .Identifying issues in the world that need to be resolved .Selecting knowledge from many fields of learning required to solve problems .Horizontally integrating knowledge and methods to solve problems .Resolving issues through graduation research and graduation thesis .Communicating solutions to the world based on international under- standing with an excellent com- mand of English * As of July 2015, the concept and establish- ment of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is currently in the developmental stages and is subject to change.

14 CHIBA UNIVERSITY Chiba University : Inspiring Leaders with a Global Per- spective In fiscal 2014, Chiba University was selected for the Top Global University Project of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as a Type B (Leading Global) university. Through this project, MEXT provides support to (1) outstanding universities engaged in educational research at an international level that are promoting internationalization through sweeping university reforms with a view to improving Japan’s com- petitiveness in higher education and (2) global universities playing a leading role in internationalization of universi- ties in Japan.

In April 2012, Chiba University had formulated the “Global Campus Chiba University” plan as its strategy for internationalization and launched vari- ous initiatives to make Chiba University a university promoting worldleading education and research and engaged in global activities. In that same year, the Chiba University was selected by MEXT as one of 11 universities to participate in “Go Global Japan Project” which is the project to promote programs in universities developing global leaders in Japan. Since then the university as a whole has worked toward promoting the skipwise Program as an initiative of this project.

With the university’s selection for “Top Global University” by MEXT in 2014, we have reconfirmed that the global lead- ers of the future should be educated with a global perspective, and imple- ment various initiatives to develop global leaders who understand Japan and who can demonstrate the best Japan has to offer to the world. In 10 years’ time, we aim to become a future- oriented university representing the world. We are determined to create a new university and will promote reforms to that end.

1 Three abilities for a global leader Considering that the global leaders of the future should be educated with a global perspective, we are designing educational programs to cultivate the intellectual abilities of forming an over- view, discovering new perspectives and finding practical solutions, which are fundamental to the development of such leaders.

2 Four Reforms for the transformation of Chiba University .Transformation through governance reform : Establishment of a College of Liberal Arts and Sci- ences,* Establish a basis for interprofessional educa- tion, Build an organization supporting the operation of all faculties + introduc- ing SULA(Super University Learning Administrators), Enhance the natural ability of the teaching staff .Transformation through Learning system reform : Expansion of early univer- sity entrance, Variety of en- trance examinations, New academic calendar, Interna- tional standardization of the university education system .Transformation through program reform :Nurture innovative talent through a double major system (TOKUHISA SCHOOL), Establish an early entrance program called “Interna- tional Program” to study overseas, Make interna- tional Japanology a requi- site, Introduce semester study abroad program for Japanese and international students, Introduce Gradu- ate school double major and major/ minor program .Transformation through global network reform : Es- tablish overseas campuses, promote alliance exchanges.

*As of July 2015, the concept and establish- ment of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is currently in the developmental stages and is subject to change. Plan for selection as a univer- sity in the Top Global Uni- versity Project 02-2.

Through the introduction of six terms, we will promote various qualitative improvements in education including establishing courses that are completed in one term (eight weeks).

Likewise, we will create a gap term, ensure students have ample opportunities for various social experiences including over- seas study, internships and volunteer activities, and encourage voluntary and independent study.

Programs for Developing Global Leaders 1 Let’sbecomeinternationalJapanese with the same ease as skipping! In today’s world where globaliza- tion is progress- ing at a rapid pace, global leaders capable of acquiring advanced, wellrounded proficiency in linguistic and communication skills and diverse cultural experiences) and who can actively engage and make contributions in international society are necessary. In 2012, Chiba University was selected as one of 11 universities nationwide to train such global leaders. skipwise is Chiba University’s program for provid- ing sup-port to students to enable them to play active roles in various fields as global leaders in the future.

2 What is the skipwise program? Provides global programs of various lengths (number of years of study), making use of early entry and early graduation options.

Provides “International Japanology” as a second liberal arts education pro- gram based on active learning. Provides opportunities for commu- nicating in English at English House; provides information and support for study abroad. Provides opportunities to participate in international internship and volunteer programs. 3 International Japanology International Japanology, which is part of the skipwise Program, is a second liberal arts program that enables stu- dents to acquire well-balanced knowl- edge necessary for preparing them to play active roles in global society. More than 1,200 subjects are offered (as of 2015).

.Gateway Subjects The introductory subjects of Interna- tional Japanology which aim to promote understanding of other cultures, reaf- firm students’ knowledge of Japanese culture, and provide students with basic knowledge required for studying abroad. A large number of active learn- ing subjects are offered. .English Communication Subjects Students learn English through practice as they engage in small-group discus- sions on familiar topics led by a native English speaking teacher. These classes aim to enhance students’ communica- tion skills in English.

16 CHIBA UNIVERSITY Research Areas with Distinc- tive Features and Research Capitalizing on Chiba Uni- versity’s Strengths 02-3. Hadron Astrophysics The International Center for Hadron Astrophysics (ICEHAP) from the Fac- ulty of Science are attempting to shed light on the source of ultra-high energy cosmic hadrons (protons, neutrons, etc.) through a joint theoretical and ex- perimental approach by studying cos- mic neutrinos and other high-energy cosmic phenomena. The Department of Neutrino Astronomy is the sole Japa- nese contributor to the joint interna- Chirality and Material Science “Chirality” is a universal research theme that always occupies a central position in the history of material sci- ence.

Homochirality in life phenomena remains a major mystery clouded in a veil. Chirality also exists in physical phenomena such as light and electron spin, which are electromagnetic waves. At Chiba University, we have enthusias- tically pursued richly unique research in chirality at a top world-class level tional IceCube experiment in Antarcti- ca, which is a neutrino telescope buried deep in an Antarctic glacier. IceCube uses photomultiplier tubes to detect neutrino interactions that occur in the ice in order to measure their various properties. ICEHAP has played a major role in the first detection of ultra-high energy cosmic neutrinos, and continues to be a leader in developing a next-gen- eration high-energy cosmic neutrino detection system.

in chemistry, life science and physics. Through chiral material science, we intend to horizontally and multidi- mensionally integrate chiral research assets developed at Chiba University to develop research in chirality for a new era with a view to creating innovation in areas such as electronics, energy, drug discovery, and therapeutics. Immune System Regulation and In- novative Therapeutics Chiba University’s Inohana Campus is comprised of several education and research facilities including Under- graduate and Graduate School of Medicine, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Nursing, University Hospital, and the Medical Mycology Research Center.

Those medical departments and the research center work together to promote cutting edge research in immunity-related fields, which is one of Chiba University’s strengths. Based on the findings from basic research, we are undertaking clinical research to develop new treatments for intractable immune-related diseases including al- lergies, autoimmune diseases, cancers, infectious diseases, and cardiovascular diseases through the immune system regulation. The number of published papers in the top 1% citation rate was 59, and ones in the top 10% was 323 in the past 10 years, reflecting the high level of research of Inohana campus.

In the future, we establish research cent- ers abroad to make Chiba University’s research in immune-related fields more competitive at the global level. IceCube Project Observatory in Antarctica Japan’s largest pollen exposure room Chiral synthetic chemistry

17 Medical Engineering Twenty of full-time researchers are energetically engaging in the research and development of new medical devices and systems in the Center for Frontier Medical Engineering. The Center brings together knowledge in imaging and robotics engineering in efforts to pinpoint fine lesions and Remote Sensing As a research center for remote sensing representative of Japan, the Center for Environmental Remote Sensing (CEReS) engages in initiatives in cutting-edge research. Two years from now CEReS plans to launch satellites provide accurate medical treatment for establishing novel “focal therapy” and smart robots that support patients or handicapped people.

Through its various activities, the Center is con- tributing to the training of many young researchers who are studying medi- cal engineering in the Department of Medical System Engineering (Faculty of Engineering) and the Medical System Course (Graduate School of Engineer- ing) and who, in the near future, will be responsible for medical care and the medical device industry.

to identify precursory phenomena of earthquakes and global land deforma- tion. To promote global environmental research, the center also archives the latest high-performance Himawari 8 data. Environment and Human Health Sciences In Environment and Health Sciences, we are conducting research on plant therapy and development of functional plants. The purpose of this research is to find preventive medical effects that will relieve stresses suffered by many people living in the cities today, and restore them to a relaxed state through stimuli in the natural environment. For this purpose, we are working for the es- tablishment of the methods for assess- ing the effects of healing and comfort, and whereby we are trying to create comfortable atmosphere.

To improve the contents of the ingredients having therapeutic functions in plants, we are also analyzing and evaluating me- dicinal properties of plants, selecting superior lines that contribute to human health, and developing technologies for mass propagation of the plants. For the advancement of our research, we are promoting cooperative works with research faculties in the univer- sity, such as those in Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Gradu- ate School of Horticulture, as well as expanding partnerships with research institutions in Asian countries.

Life science clarifies biological phe- nomena on the basis of the theory and methods of Physical Chemistry. 3 Frontier Technology Course This course covers wide range of engineering including architecture, urban environment systems, indus- trial design, mechanical engineering, medical system engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, nano sci- ence, image sciences, and informatics. Students are encouraged to be frontiers in technology.

4 Human Sciences Courses Human sciences provide methods based on natural sciences for analyzing human mind, culture, and society. For an example, it explains a philosophi- cal question “what makes one person distinct from all others?” from the viewpoint of information processing. Similarly the ability to interpret the surrounding environment from what we look at is related to function of eyes and brain by this new science.

20 CHIBA UNIVERSITY Environmental ISO 02-5. ISO50001 In the 10th year of its environmental initiatives, Chiba University became the first university to acquire ISO50001.

1 Certification in international standards for environmental and energy management systems In fiscal 2004, the four main cam- puses of Chiba University (Nishi-Chiba, Matsudo, Kashiwanoha, and Inohana excluding the University Hospital) obtained ISO14001, which is the inter- national standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS), and since then has maintained this standard. Fol- lowing this, in 2013, Chiba University became the first Japanese university to acquire ISO150001, the international standard for energy management, and today operates the most advanced environmental management system in Japan.

2 Creation and operation of uni- versity systems led by the Chiba University Students Committee for Environmental Management System Of particular note is the fact that students have been at the helm of these ISO initiatives. Students enrolled in Environmental Management Practical Training I - III (approximately 200 stu- dents in years 1 through 3) formed the Chiba University Students Committee for Environmental Management Sys- tem, drew up various plans, actioned and evaluated these, and have been conducting a range of management activities while learning practical skills in management that they then apply to their next activities.

In addition to prac- tical activities in areas such as raising awareness of the environment, provid- ing education about the environment, and greening and beautification activi- ties, the students also engage in core activities required for the university’s ISO management including internal au- dits, basic training and external audits. Students who continue these activities for three years receive qualification as a Chiba University Environmental Energy Management Practitioner from the university, which they can list among their qualifications when they seek employment after graduation. Fur- thermore, in 2009 students established the NPO Chiba University Students Committee for Environmental Manage- ment System as an NPO, and have been conducting various activities while receiving external subsidies.

ISO management at Chiba University is not only achieving results in reducing environmental impacts through energy and resource conservation but also contributing significantly to providing a venue for the practical education of students.

21 Inohana Campus High Functionality Initiatives fostering next-generation medical personnel and to cre- ate the “Therapeutics” center Japan is facing two major changes in the social structure: an ageing society with fewer children and the globalization. These changes pose urgent challenges to Japanese national universities with medical-related faculties. Such institu- tions will need to be first responders to the shifting expectations of society.

Specifically, these universities need to train medical professionals to be leaders capable of addressing the diversification of health care needs of next-generation medicine.

Given these situations, Chiba University considers the promotion of the new academic field, “Therapeutics,” as its highest priority. This emerging field is where systematic research on preven- tive, diagnostic, and curative theories, and development of novel treatments is conducted. To achieve this goal, we intend to further strengthen the high functionality of the Inohana Campus. Inohana Campus is the only campus among Japanese national universi- ties that accommodates three distinct medical-related faculties of Medicine, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Nurs- ing, and the University Hospital.

With its visioning centering on the Future Medicine Education and Research Organization, the Inohana Campus shall 1) cultivate next-generation medical personnel; 2) accelerate reforms in our education and research organiza- tions; and 3) develop best-practices and cutting-edge techniques to provide innovate approaches to the systemic changes brought on by globalization. It is our intention to extend our reforms school-wide.

Inohana IPE leading Japan’s medical universities Patient-centered medical care has become essential at places where medical care is provided. Inohana IPE is an educational program conducted through the coopera- tion and collaboration of the School of Nursing, School of Medicine, and Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences since 2007. It is fostering the development of independent and organizational medical professionals who can provide patient- and user-cen- tered treatment and care in cooperation and collaboration with other profession- als. Among the notable features of IPE are the study of four multi-level four-year sub- jects that are set as compulsory subjects in the School of Nursing, School of Medicine and Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences where continuation of improvement is based on evaluation of study results, as well as the adoption of active learning and small-group study.

With the coopera- tion of the University Hospital, hospitals nearby, local clinics, dispensing pharma- cies, visiting nurse stations, and local comprehensive care centers, students also participate in work experience relevant to their field. IPE is steadily spreading to other universities throughout Japan but Inohana IPE has been a pioneer in this area from a very early stage and has paved the way for IPE in Japan and overseas.

22 CHIBA UNIVERSITY “Center of Community (COC)” Program 02-7. Center of Creative Community - Chiba University This project was selected by the Min- istry of Education, Culture, Sports, Sci- ence and Technology in fiscal 2013 as an FY2013 Center of Community (COC) Program. As a university in a residen- tial community in the suburbs of a large metropolis with many local issues, through this project we aim to create a center for initiating comprehensive efforts in education and research and in making social contributions to address these problems. To undertake these ini- tiatives, we have established the Center for Community Revitalization and Care and a new local satellite campus.

We have also put in place a university management framework, and in col- laboration with municipal governments we are promoting reforms throughout the university to become a community- oriented university.

23 University for the Community Communities targeted for initiatives We will launch initiatives in the cities - Chiba, Matsudo and Kashiwa, where the university has campuses, and dis- seminate the result throughout Chiba Prefecture. Suburban communities Current status of suburban communi- ties: these are communities originally developed as commuter towns and places for consumption activities of Tokyo in an era of growth premised on an increase in population and economic growth. New Education: Promotion of Compulsory Subject & Field Studies In the 2015 academic year , as a course in the liberal arts, we commenced com- pulsory subjects : the Community Revi- talization Care program and intend to develop human resources that can play a more active role and contribute to the community as well as specialist who will find solutions to local problems.

New Research: Promotion of Academic Research that Contributes to the Commu- nity We will classify the various unresolved issues of suburban communities into four research areas and proceed with field studies in cooperation with the community. We will undertake theo- retical research in support of these to establish “clinical care research” as a new model for contributing to commu- nities.

Greater Contribution to the Community Promotion of Activities that Contribute to the Community through the Col- laboration of the Public, Private and Academic sectors In Matsudo City in Chiba Prefecture and in other places, we will also promote the College Link Program (recurrent education), which is achieving positive outcomes at the Kashiwanoha campus, as a new study program based on col- laboration of the public, private and academic sectors. We will also conduct “town toolbox” sessions (display of research and education results), public lectures, seminars and workshops.

40 CHIBA UNIVERSITY Overseas Offices 03-9. Chiba University has been promoting the establishment of overseas offices in response to the globalizations of the university’s educational and research activities. In 2007, the university opened its first overseas office, Chiba University China Office in Beijing, China. The native coordinator handles various projects in cooperation with International Affairs Division of Chiba University, including communicating with universities and institutions in China, assisting pro- spective students, and expanding the academic networks in China.

67 The MMRC is the only research institu- tion in which comprehensive studies on fungal infection and pathogenic fungi are conducted. The MMRC was established in 1987 as a nation-wide collaborative organization in Japan, and authorized by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as a Joint Usage/ Research Center in 2009. The MMRC is now recognized as a leading research institute by domestic and overseas researchers in this field. The ultimate goal of the MMRC is to overcome fungal diseases and related disorders by seek- ing diagnostic therapeutic and preven- tive measures through investigation of the mechanisms of the diseases.

In the light of importance of microbial genetic resources, the unit for collec- tion of pathogenic fungi and actinomy- cetes has been established to reinforce the project to preserve microbial resources. In 2007, the MMRC was designated by the MEXT as the core organization of “National BioResource Project-Pahogenic Microorganisms” and has established a firm position as the facility to preserve genetic resourc- es of pathogenic fungi and actinomy- cetes.

The policy of CFS is to encourage talented students to become scientists in natural sciences, especially phys- ics, applied physics, physical chemis- try, biochemistry and human-related tionally services high performance computing and campus networking.

Additionally the institute collaborates with university administration on the development of information and com- munication technology for education and researches in the university. The institute has 5 divisions, •Institutional Researches and Devel- opment : For the support of informa- tion and communication technology in university managements and the development of institutional research methodologies and applications •Low and Security for ICT : For the support and development of low and se- curity issues of information technology information science. Since we believe that some special measures are needed for this purpose, special seminars for the above four fields are delivered to the CFS students in order to stimulate their interest.

Beside these seminars, some liberal arts seminars are also arranged. CFS also has strong links with high school teachers, and exchanges opinions with them on education systems for young people. This is not only to seek better educational methods in FSP, but also to prevent young people from losing their interest in science, which we think is a large problem in the Japanese educa- tional system.

70 CHIBA UNIVERSITY 06-8. Center for Language Education (CLE) The Center for Language Education (CLE) is responsible for language education mainly for undergraduate students. It consists of three semi-inde- pendent sections: the English Language Section, the (non-English) Modern Language Section, and the Japanese Language Section. The English Language Section (ELS) is in charge of teaching English to under- graduate and graduate students. It is also in charge of curriculum design and faculty development in English teach- ing. A special mention should be made of the CALL (Computer Assisted Lan- guage Learning) institution at the ELS which plays an important role not only in providing structured English teach- ing but also in facilitating students to learn English voluntarily according to their linguistic levels and interests.

The ELS thus helps students to develop skills in English in many ways. 1-33, Yayoi-cho, Inage-ku, Chiba-shi, Chiba, 263- 8522 Japan .Tel +81-43-290-3609 .Fax +81-43- 290-3608 .E-mail dcd3607@office.chiba-u.jp Nishi-Chiba Campus The Modern Language Section (Ger- man, French and Chinese) is responsi- ble for language education and re- search for undergraduates, and also for designing intensive education courses provided to graduates or undergradu- ates who intend to study abroad. The ability to think critically and ex- press ideas logically is highly expected of Japanese professionals in the ever globalized world.

The Japanese Lan- guage Section of the CLE explores the reason(s) why Japanese students often cannot put forward their points of view, questions or arguments effectively even in Japanese. After an extensive analysis, a curriculum will be devel- oped mainly for freshmen for writ- ing and presentation for general and academic purposes. Emphasis will be placed also on the development of study skills, logical and critical thinking, and strategies how to integrate them into academic writings and presentations. In short, the Center is not only limited to teaching language skills; our aim is also to provide students with the opportunity to enhance the range and depth of knowledge in their specialized fields and to further promote scholarly exchange and international communi- cation.

The instructional faculty at the Center represents a variety of cultural and intellectual backgrounds which provide a unique opportunity for pur- suing culturally unbiased researches.
