The HUCI Office manages and monitors the university’s progress to achieve the goals outlined in the “Hokkaido Universal Campus Initiative.” This initiative influences HU’s capacity to collaborate with various higher education institutions overseas in educating the next generation of leaders who will contribute to the resolution of global issues. We have received “Top Global University Project” grants for the years 2014–2023 by the Japanese government in order to sufficiently address these aims.
