The Community Service-Learning course started in 1999. Students engage themselves in service activities at domestic NPO and NGO, public organizations, and local communities in Japan. Students have regularly worked at partner institutions. Students are also encouraged to explore new service sites that meet their interests by negotiating with host organizations on their own. Both custom-made and regularly-conducted Community Service-Learning offers excellent opportunities to gain deeper insight into Japanese society.
