Founded in 1953 based on the spirit of Christianity, International Christian University cultivates capable global citizens who serve God and humankind to contribute to lasting world peace. The approximately 28,000 students who have graduated from the college and graduate school in the last 65 years are active all over the world, making full use of their learning at ICU to tackle myriad issues. ICU was established through sustained international cooperation between Japan and the United States and by generous donations.
Prominent figures as well as ordinary Japanese who found hope in a cause dedicated to world peace contributed wholeheartedly to the fund-raising drive despite the hardships of the post-war years. To meet the expectations of countless people who helped us build and maintain our university, and to provide a rich education and research environment for students and faculty, we ask you for your continuing support and understanding.
