Mukogawa Women's University has now reached its 80th anniversary on February 25th.
Our founder, Kiichiro Koe established the former school of MWU on February 25th 1939 to provide education for women.
MWU today has 7 educational institutions; graduate school, undergraduate school, junior college, high school, junior high school, kindergarten, and nursery school. The number of students in total is approximately 12,000, which makes MWU one of the biggest women's schools in Japan. There are also approximately 190,000 graduates.
With this historical point, we have hailed a slogan, "Innovate Women's School in Japan", which accompanies the project for coming 90th or 100th anniversary called "Mukojo Action". This year, 2019 will be the very first year we initiate a challenge for a big innovation of women's school in Japan.
