On the 7th of October, Friday, we welcomed Mr. Kazuichi Sakamoto who was the first president of Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University to our 2nd stage GLS class.
The theme was ”Tips for the next Global Leaders.”
He was one of the key members who established the university, which is quite a rare and important job. He shared the reason why they put the name on the university. “The university has ‘Asia Pacific’ in its name. This Asia Pacific does not mean the area, but the era. Asia Pacific is to be the key player in the world.” This motto, made when the university was established, has had an impact on the students’ thinking.
Furthermore, his speech described one of the qualifications to be a leader who can impact the students. “Even though having a concrete vision toward the project we face is quite tough, the principle, accomplishes internationalization by welcoming people from all over the world, attracts people. We were grateful for the network we had, which helped us out.”
