About Us

In 1870, Ferris Jogakuin was founded by Mary E. Kidder, a female missionary sent by the Reformed Church in America, as the first educational institute for women in Japan, based on Christian beliefs.
Ferris was founded according to the spirit of Christianity for the purpose of educating women.
The first article in the school regulations states that "This school is an academic research and educational institution, its educational activities conducted in the spirit of Christianity, providing women with a high level of education and undertaking specialized scholarly research, with a love of truth and peace, and aiming to cultivate people who can contribute to the welfare of humanity."
Ferris espouses an educational philosophy of "For Others." What is now the school’s motto is a sentiment that has emerged naturally among those involved in the university over the years, ever since its founding.
In essence, it can be said to mean "serve others." As such, each student who studies at the university absorbs and passes on this spirit of thinking toward not just oneself and those one feels close to, but also taking a wider perspective, developing an awareness of the presence of others as well, and acting for their good.
