Challenges of Creating Liberal Arts and Global Studies Programs at Sophia University

Sophia University has been a pioneer in Japanese higher education. This talk highlights crucial endeavors from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s as my colleagues and I tackled issues, overcame obstacles, and devised solutions that created the Faculty of Liberal Arts and the Graduate School of Global Studies. Reflecting on this process offers insights into educational institution building.
