YNU was established in 1949 with a history of its original foundation in 1876. Today, it comprises 5 Undergraduate Colleges (Education, Economics, Business Administration, Engineering, and Urban Sciences) and 5 Graduate Schools (Education, International Social Sciences, Engineering, Environment and Information Sciences and Urban Innovation.) It has developed into a university with about 1,000 staff and faculty and 10,000 students.
Based on 60 years of history and tradition, YNU is highly internationalized. Located in the historically international city of Yokohama, YNU has been dedicated to a global perspective and has concluded international agreements with 131 universities and institutions in 42 countries and regions including Members of the T.I.M.E. Association.
We are of course confident that YNU will contribute to develop further cooperation and exchange with the member universities of the T.I.M.E. Association.
We look forward to meeting them for the next T.I.M.E. General Assembly (4th and 5th October, 2018, USP, Sao Paulo, Brazil)
