1 Before awarding the certificates, President Makio Takemura greeted the attendees and described the qualities required of people aspiring to become global leaders, namely: basic and specialized academic skills; basic professional skills such as being able to identify problems, leadership, and teamwork skills; foreign language skills; communication skills; intercultural understanding and utilization of such understanding (which enables students to accept diverse cultural differences, respond to them flexibly, and create new value and cultures by integrating the strengths of different cultures); and understanding of one’s own culture and the ability to communicate it effectively (which allows students to deeply understand their own countries’ traditions and cultures and explain their significance to people from different backgrounds). President Takemura then congratulated the awardees and talked about the high expectations he had for them.

At the awarding ceremony, 97 students were certified as TGL Silvers and awarded certificates and certification badges. Ms. Yu Kanatani, a third year student at the Department of Regional Development Studies (Regional Studies Course) in the Faculty of Regional Development Studies, gave a speech on behalf of all the awardees.

Ms. Kanatani talked about how seeing a series of students ahead of her going off overseas made her interested in becoming a globally competent professional who can play an active role on the international stage. Much as she wanted to go overseas herself, she struggled with English. She studied English diligently for TOEIC tests but her scores plateaued at around the 400 mark. She spent days desperately trying to find a way forward. During that time, she had a chance to join a short study abroad program touring Malaysia and Thailand in South East Asia. During the trip, she often got frustrated with her poor English communication skills and decided to study English harder. She eventually went to Britain to study the language at one of the University’s partner institutions through its language study abroad program.

She was also chosen as a member of the 10th Generation of NIHONGO Partners to Indonesia, and from this fall she is to represent Japan and work at a local school in Indonesia for seven months as a Japanese-language teaching assistant. She concluded her speech by saying that, after completing the stint in Indonesia, she hopes to obtain the TGL Gold certificate.

About the Toyo Global Leader (TGL) Program

In 2014, Toyo University was selected as a Type B (Global Traction Type) University under the Top Global University Project carried out by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), through which MEXT provides the selected universities with prioritized support for the promotion of internalization. Supported by this project, Toyo University is striving to step up its globalization and organizational reform efforts under the concept “TOYO GLOBAL DIAMONDS: Becoming an Asian hub university for global leaders.”

The Toyo Global Leader Program aims to help Toyo University students become globally competent talents who can play important roles in and outside of Japan by reinforcing three elements: English language skills that enable effective communication in an intercultural environment; the ability to create cultural value; and the ability to solve problems in an intercultural environment. In line with these objectives, specific requirements for certification are defined for each rank of Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Students who meet the requirements of any one of the ranks will be certified as Toyo Global Leaders.

第4回 Toyo Global Leaderプログラム TGLシルバー認定式

2018(平成30)年8月4日、白山キャンパス125記念ホールにて、「第4回 Toyo Global Leaderプログラム TGLシルバー認定式」を挙行しました。

1認定式に先立ち、竹村牧男学長からグローバルリーダーとして必要とされる「基礎学力および專門学力」、「社会人基礎力(課題発見能力、問題解決能力、リーダーシップ、協調性)」、「語学力」、「コミュニケーション能力」、多様な異文化の差異を受け止め、柔軟に対応し、それぞれの長所を統合して新しい価値や文化を創り出していく「異文化理解・活用力」、自国の伝統文化の特質を深く理解し、他の文化に生きてきた人々にその意義を説明できる「自文化理解・発信力」などについてお話いただき、認定を受ける学生へのお祝い、そして今後への期待などが述べられました。

認定バッジ認定式では97名の学生をTGLシルバーに認定し、認定証および認定バッジを授与。認定者を代表して、金谷 優さん(国際地域学部国際地域学科地域総合専攻3年)が挨拶をしました。

金谷さんは入学後、海外に飛び立つ先輩の背中を見ていく中で、自分自身も海外で活躍できる人材になりたいと考えるようになったそうです。一方で、入学時よりTOEICスコアを伸ばそうと何度も勉強し、受験したにもかかわらず400点台から伸びず、悩む日々が続きました。そんな中、マレーシアやタイといった東南アジアの短期研修に参加し、自分の語学力ゆえの悔しい思いを経験し、より英語を勉強しようというモチベーションを高め、昨年より協定校語学留学にてイギリスに行きました。

さらに、この秋より日本語パートナーズのインドネシア10期生に選ばれ、日本の代表として、7ヶ月間現地の学校で、日本語授業のアシスタントを務める予定です。また、帰国後は卒業時のTGLゴールドへの認定を目指したいと、今後の抱負も語りました。
