Start of an odyssey in the “archipelago of knowledge” Masato Goda, Dean of the School of Arts and Letters
“Letters entrusted to you”
“An archipelago of knowledge – the School of Arts and Letters”
“Mapping of new world citizens”
This network is nothing less than an archipelago of knowledge. No two islands are the same. Complex ocean currents separate the islands from each other. I nevertheless urge you to discover the joy that comes from having the courage to cross from one island to another in our School of Arts and Letters. By all means, please study in our School and master the know-how needed to get through difficult straits. This could even be regarded as a duty of those who have earned the opportunity to study at a university in a world full of so much misery.
Let us learn together in this archipelago of knowledge, toward the goal of becoming autonomous citizen intellectuals and new world citizens.
