＜Comment by President Miyazaki>
I am delighted to announce that our university has been ranked at the top class of THE Young University Rankings for the fourth year in a row, up from last year.
Although our university is still young in terms of history, I believe that we have been selected for the ranking because of the support extended by many of you and the achievements accumulated by faculty members, students and graduates.
We will continue to return the results of our research to the reconstruction and revitalization of Fukushima Prefecture, and make further efforts to produce human resources who will be active in the world.
