Commencement Speech of the President

Dear Graduates
Congratulations on your completion of the doctoral degree program or the master's degree program at JAIST. I would like to extend my congratulations to your parents and other family members as well as your professors.
I respect all of you as you have completed your courses under the difficult situation caused by the novel coronavirus infection as well as a big earthquake occurred just at the final stage of your JAIST life.
JAIST has created world-leading research achievements in the broad area of advanced science and technology, and fostered excellent graduates like you.
It is described in the Future Vision of JAIST that JAIST aims to become a world top research university and to foster students through the research who will contribute to the future of the world.
What matters most for you from now on is what you can do in the society. I believe you have acquired many wonderful things at JAIST more than what you can remind now. Please create excellent achievements by making the best use of your knowledge, abilities and human relationship acquired at JAIST.
This January, we had a serious earthquake. I believe, if we can put the knowledge and the experiences of JAIST people into one place, we can contribute to the early recovery of damaged areas and establish the procedures to reduce the negative effects from the future disasters.
Today, the world is facing another serious problem of war. It's a pity that we have no effective way to stop it completely. But I believe building the good and intimate human relationship is the most important thing to establish a peaceful world. In JAIST, you had a wonderful time with a variety of students and professors having a variety of backgrounds. It must be effective to build a global human relationship for making up a real peaceful world.
Together with many former graduates of JAIST, all of you attending this ceremony will surely contribute to establish the peaceful and happy world.
I strongly hope all of you make your best efforts for the future of the world as well as for the future of yourself.
In closing my speech, on behalf of JAIST faculty and staff members, I would like to congratulate all of you again.
Congratulations and good luck!
