Achievement of Commitment

Through a campus-wide effort, Mie University became certified as a UNESCO Associated School in August 2009 and has been committed to relevant activities since then. In other words, while being active as an UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) member, we have been expanding and deepening the Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) activities by taking advantage of features as a comprehensive university. In addition, through these activities, we are fulfilling out the University Social Responsibility (USR).
