Summary

The motto of Tottori University is to “fuse knowledge and practice. ” With this as a guiding principle, the university has focused its international strategy on tackling the problem of desertification, a problem which is progressing rapidly on a global scale, with the aim of " building environmentally viable societies and promoting sustainable regional development." The university's international strategy is based on its efforts over many years in the fields of Regional Sciences, Medicine, Engineering and Agriculture to apply the results of education and research to the prevention of desertification. Through developing this international strategy, it aims to make a contribution at the global level to the stable and sustainable development of local regions.   In order to achieve this aim, Tottori University has created a cross-faculty system of education and research as shown in the outline of the university‘s International Strategy. It has also established a "Headquarters for Planning and Promoting International Strategies" which consists of two special offices: an " International Strategy Planning Office" and an " International Strategy Promotion Office". This headquarters supports an international level of education and research to promote cooperation together with the overseas offices connected to its Information Network.
