Tohoku University, formerly known as the Tohoku Imperial University, was founded in 1907. Unlike other imperial universities of that time, it initiated an “Open Door” policy, accepting graduates from both technical and regular high schools. In 1913, it went a step further and despite opposition from the government, became Japan’s first university to admit female students.

At the time of its founding, Tohoku University was able to attract young and brilliant researchers from around the world to serve on its faculty. A “Research First” principle was thus established, calling on scholars to not only pursue highly productive research, but to also put their findings to work in the teaching of their students.

In addition to this, Tohoku University has a proud tradition of “Practice Oriented Research and Education,” in which the results of cutting edge research are put to use for the good of society and the improvement of living standards. Achievements include the establishment of local venture businesses which have contributed to regional industry, and the recognition of the university as the nation’s center for research on family law.
