Definition of intellectual career support
Comprehensive support for encouraging all students to develop their careers and achieve independence, through educational courses focused on the acquisition and exploration of greater intelligence.

A new complementary mechanism for support across the University, respecting independence and previous commitments made by faculties, schools, and courses. This is not a system to replace conventional commitments in each course.
Defining a “career”
A career is defined as the collective unit and process of changes in social role, profession, and position of a human being throughout his/her career as well as related values. Generally, it refers to the direction a person takes, their profession, and their way of life.
Career education is meant to demonstrate the philosophy and direction, for extensively reviewing and reforming conventional practices of education, from the perspective of encouraging each student to develop their career and become independent.
