The founding ideal of all of J. F. Oberlin University is to foster global citizens on the basis of Christian values. This educational ideal is aimed not merely at imparting book knowledge to students while they are in school but at helping them to acquire a broad liberal arts education and the ability to make their own decisions. We seek to nurture individuals who will be able to understand others and deal with circumstances in a spirit of cooperation, no matter what the situation.

In order to make this educational ideal a reality, we offer students a liberal arts education and an international education, and we are constantly developing new educational activities that are oriented toward the future.
