The actual foundation of the university began In 1908, when three Jesuit priests arrived in Japan in response to a request from the Roman Pontiff at that time, Pope Pius X. Five years later, in 1913, they opened the first Catholic university in Japan on this Kioi site where Sophia still stands.The university celebrated its centennial in 2013.Sophia’s research and education is based on the Jesuit educational philosophy, “Men and Women for Others, with Others.”
