East Research Building in Mita Kyoseikan in Hiyoshi Keio traces its history to 1858 when Fukuzawa Yukichi, who had studied the Western educational system at Brown University in the United States, started to teach Dutch while he was a guest of Okudaira family. In 1868 he changed the name of the school to Keio Gijuku and devoted all his time to education. While Keiō's initial identity was that of a private school of Western studies, it expanded and established its first university faculty in 1890, and became known as a leading institute in Japanese higher education. It was the first Japanese university to reach its 150th anniversary, celebrating this anniversary in 2008. In 2009, Keio University was selected as a "Global 30" university, a government program "which is aimed at elevating... international competitiveness among the world's top universities and at creating an attractive environment for overseas students, while fostering students and researchers capable of playing active international roles."[5] Keio has leading research centers. It has approximately 30 Research Centers located on its five main campuses and at other facilities for advanced research in Japan[6] Keio has one of the largest financial endowments of any Japanese university.[7] Keio's School of Medicine has long-standing research links with the Harvard Medical School.[8] Keio University has joined the MIT and the French INRIA in hosting the international World W3C.[9] Mission Fukuzawa stated the mission of Keio shown below, which is based on his speech for the alumni's party on November 1st in 1896.[10] Keio Gijuku shouldn't be satisfied with being just one educational institution. Its mission is expected to be a model of the nobility of intelligence and virtue, to make clear how it can be applied to its family, society, and nation, and to take an actual action of this statement. It expects all students being leaders in society by the practice of this mission. Those sentences were given to students as his will, and considered as the simple expression of Keio's actual mission.[10] Academic culture Contributor to Japanese modern education systems Keio is known that it has primarily introduced many modern education systems in Japan. The followings are the examples. Keio is the earliest Japanese school that introduced the annual fixed course fee, designed by Fukuzawa.[11] It initially introduced the culture of speech to Japan, which Japan had never had before. It built Japan's earliest speech house Mita Speech House in 1875 as well.[12] It is regarded as Japan's first university which accept the international students.[13] Keio accepted 2 Korean students in 1881 as its (and also Japan's) first international students. 60 Korean students entered in 1883 and 130 Korean students in 1895. Dokuritsu Jison Keio put "Independence and self-respect (独立自尊, Dokuritsu Jison?)" as a fundation of its education. This is meant to be physically and mentally independent, and respect yourself for keeping your virtue.[14] Independence and self-respect are also regarded as Fukuzawa's nature and essence of his education.[15] Hangaku Hankyo Learning half and teaching half (半学半教, Hangaku Hankyo?) is the other unique culture in Keio.[16] During the late Edo period and the early Meiji period, several private prep schools often used students as assistant teachers and it was called "Learning half and teaching half". Keio also had initially used this system. In the early period of such schools of Western studies, there had been many things to learn not only for students but also professors themselves. Hence there had been sometimes the occasions that students who had learned in advance had taught other students and even professors. After the proper legal systems for education had been set up, those situations have been disappeared. However, Fukuzawa thought the essence of academia is a continuous learning, and knowing more things provides more learning opportunities. Keio respects his thought and put the rule in "Rules in Keio Gijuku (慶應義塾社中之約束, Keio Gijuku Shachu no Yakusoku?)" that there shouldn't be any hierarchy between teachers and learners, and all of the people in Keio Gijuku are just in a same company. For this reason, there is still a culture in this university that All professors and lecturers are officially called with the honorific of "Kun" but never "Teacher" or "Professor".[17][18] Shachu no Kyoryoku Collaboration in a company (社中の協力, Shachu no Kyoryoku?) is also a uniqueness of Keio.[19] Fukuzawa stated in 1879 that the Keio's success today is because of the collaboration in its company, and "Collaboration in a company" originally came from this article. People in Keio often think that all of the people related to Keio (e.g. professors, students, alumni and their family members) are the part of their company, thus they should try to help each other like brothers and sisters. This culture has been often seen especially in the alumni organization called Mita-Kai.[20] History Keio Gijuku in Tsukiji in 1862 The lecture of Economics by Fukuzawa during the Battle of Ueno on May 15 1868 Keio University in May 1912 Keio University (慶應義塾大学, Keiō Gijuku Daigaku?) was established in 1858 as a School of Western studies localted in one of the mansion houses in Tsukiji by the founder Fukuzawa Yukichi.[21] Its root is considered as the Han school for Kokugaku studies named Shinshu Kan established in 1796.[22] Keio changed its name as "Keio Gijuku" in 1868, which came from the era name "Keio"[23] and "Gijuku" as the translation of Public school.[24] It movied to the current location in 1871, established the Medical school in 1873, and the official university department with Economics, Law and Literacy study in 1890.[25] Keio has been forming its structure in the following chronological order.[26] Year University development 1858 Keio Gijuku was established 1879 It rejected an offer to become a national university.[27] Instead of that, it became a vocational school funded by Daimyos including Shimazu clan. 1890 University department with Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Law, and Faculty of Letters was set up 1906 Graduate school was set up 1917 School of Medicine was set up 1920 It was authorized as a university in the prewar system 1944 Faculty of Technology was set up 1949 It was authorized as a university in the post-war system 1957 Faculty of Business and Commerce was set up 1962 Graduate School of Business Administration was set up 1981 Faculty of Science and Technology (reformed from Faculty of Technology) was set up 1990 Faculty of Environment and Information Studies and Faculty of Policy Management was set up 1994 Graduate School of Media Design was set up 2001 Faculty of Nursing and Medical Care was set up 2004 Law School was set up 2008 Faculty of Pharmacy was set up There have been several notable things in Keio's over 150 year history as shown below. Keio launched Hiromoto Watanabe as a first chancellor of the Imperial University (University of Tokyo) in 1886. He is the first chancellor of the officially authorized university in Japan. Keio sent 6 students to abroad in 1899. In the same year, it accepted 3 international students from India, Qing Dynasty, and Thailand. 8 international students entered from Taiwan in the next year. Keio was visited by Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore where he made a speech in 1916. Keio was visited by Albert Einstein where he presented a lecture on the special theory of relativity in 1922.[28] It started to accept female students from 1946. A paper written by Keio undergraduate student as the first author was placed in the research journal Science in 2006, which had rarely happened to any undergraduate students.[29][30][31] Keio was visited by Prince Charles in 2008. Presidents Since the president system was established in 1881, there have been 18 presidents in Keio's history.[32] President Tenure President Tenure President Tenure President Tenure 1.

Student life Mita Sai Societies In Japanese universities, there are student societies named "Circle". Although the accurate number is not clear, there are at least 410 circles in Keio.[33] Festivals Keio holds school festivals every year in each campus. The main festival is called "Mita sai" on Mita campus, which is usually held in late November.[34] Mita sai includes various activities for not only entertainment but also academic purposes. It is also a research workshop for students on Mita campus.[35] Approximately 200,000 people visit Mita sai every year.[36] Athletics Edward Bramwell Clarke and Tanaka Ginnosuke first introduced Rugby union to Japanese students at Keio University. (The game had been played in the treaty ports of Yokohama and Kobe before that, but not between Japanese teams.) The interest of Keio's students in baseball stretches back to the early years of the 20th century; and the history of exhibition games was reported internationally. In 1913, an American professional team made of players from the New York Giants and the Chicago White Sox played the Keio team in an exhibition game.[37] In a 1932 exhibition game, the Keio team beat the University of Michigan team which was then touring Japan.[38] Keio's baseball team plays in the Tokyo Big6 Baseball League (six prominent universities in the Tokyo area). Kei-So rivalry Kei-So Sen Traditionally, there has been a strong rivalry between Keio and Waseda University. There are annually many matches between 2 universities in several sports, such as baseball, regatta and rugby. These games are called "Kei-So Sen(慶早戦)", or more generally "So-Kei Sen(早慶戦)". The Kei-So baseball game is especially famous because of its over 100 year history and importance in Japanese baseball history. The most famous Kei-So baseball match was held on 1943/10/16, and it was made into a movie titled " The Last Game - the Final So-Kei Sen -" in 2008. There are 2 Kei-So baseball game seasons every year and They are usually broadcasted these by NHK. There is no lecture in Keio's all campuses on the game day because of the students who want to watch this match. Japanese emperors visited Kei-So baseball games 3 times in 1929,1950 and 1994. Keio and Waseda have been often compared to each other in other general topics, such as their popularity and alumni's successes. In fact, there are many books and magazine articles which compared with these universities.[39][40][41][42] Organisation New South building on Mita Campus Jukukankyoku on Mita Campus Mita speech house on Mita Campus Hiyoshi Campus Yagami Campus Kitasato Memorial Medical Library on Shinanomachi campus 3rd Building on Shiba Kyoritsu campus Faculties(Entrance Capacity 6404) It has nine faculties, which cover a wide range of academic fields, with each operating independently and offering broad educational and research activities.

Fukuzawa thought such unstable financial system prevents modernization of educational institution and professors' professionalism. Then he designed a rudimentary management system for the school finance.[2] ^ Before Meiji Period, Japanese people had thought the oral statement is not reliable enough for decision making, thus every time people had needed to state their opinions on paper when they had needed to decide something. Fukuzawa thought this culture would seriously prevent to introduce the modern parliamentary regime and the fair court system. Then he developed the art of speech by the arrangement of Western speech.

This expression is normally considered as an informal expression and shouldn't be used for professors. ^ Keio only use the honorific of "Teacher" or "Professors" officially when they refer Fukuzawa's name. ^ 社中の協力:[慶應義塾] ^ a b 島田 裕巳 "慶應三田会―組織とその全貌" 三修社 ^ "慶應義塾豆百科〕No.4 慶應義塾の起源" (in Japanese).

Keio University.  ^ Although Keio had been already involved to the higher education, it had not had a university system before 1890. It was authorized by Japanese government as a university in 1920. ^ See ja:慶應義塾大学 for detail ^ In the beginning of Meiji period, there was a sense of ethics that Samurai shouldn't work for more than 2 masters. Keio was established by the fund of Tokugawa Shogunate, so it was hard to work for the new government in this sense. Fukuzawa in fact criticized severely Katsu Kaishū and Enomoto Takeaki who worked for both Tokugawa and the new government (see Fukuzawa Yukichi). His such strict viewpoint had prevented Keio to set up a political department, and kept many Keio graduate away from politics for a long time. It is also one of the clear difference from Waseda which has been positively involved to politics for a long time. ^ Vol1.
