Founding Philosophy and Educational Principles
Kyushu University of Nursing and Social Welfare was established with the goal of developing human resources for "nursing and welfare with rich humanity" that best suit the needs in the 21st century. For this reason, we have been endeavoring to offer advanced special skills and wide-ranging liberal arts education for the students to appropriately and flexibly address the rapid development of science and technology and the drastic changes of society.
It is our aim to provide practical science education for the benefit of the local healthcare, medical care and welfare through teaching basic international knowledge, fostering a global perspective, nurturing rich humanity, and inspiring students' motivation for independent and creative learning.
To this end, Kyushu University of Nursing and Social Welfare advocates the following philosophies.

1. "University that develops in conjunction with the community", where we share the intellectual capital of the university with the local community toward mutual growth through opening our capacities, functions, and facilities to the public, and providing extension courses, lectures, and workshops for high school students and adult students alike.

2. "University of lifelong education", where we open the university's doors to students of other universities and working people, by setting up research fellows, part-time and non-degree student programs.
