The Vision for the Future of the Center for Health Sciences and Counseling
The Center for Health Sciences and Counseling is part of Kyushu University’s Faculty of Arts and Science, whose philosophy is to cultivate the basic attitudes required to “learn about learning and thinking.” This Center also seeks to provide an environment that will enable students to proactively and independently learn about their mental and physical health, and to actually maintain and enhance their health. Moreover, the number of international students and researchers at Kyushu University is growing, as a natural consequence of internationalization. We would like to help to create a campus that facilitates the maintenance of mental and physical health, irrespective of cultural differences.
