‡@History
Kwansei Gakuin was established in 1889, in Harada-no-Mori, Kobe (in todayfs Nada Ward) ,by the American missionary Walter R. Lambuth (from the Southern Methodist Church). Comprising a Theology Department and an Academic Department, the school aimed at providing an all-round education based on Christian principles. After leaving Japan, Lambuth -a true eglobal servantf- continued to devote his life to missionary work in Latin America, Africa, Europe, China and Korea. A memorial erected in his home commemorates him as a eWorld Citizen, and Christian apposite to many landsf.

‡AMastery for Service
Kwansei Gakuinfs school motto, gMastery for Service,h was proposed by the Canadian missionary Dr. C.J.L Bates (1877-1963) who was our fourth Chancellor. Since being first introduced in 1912, it continues to be repeated to the present day as a truly descriptive expression of Kwansei Gakuinfs stance. A gMasterh usually means someone who directs or commands others, but at our school, it means a person who, in terms of humanity, learning, and daily life, has an accomplished character, or as Dr. Bates said, is a gSelf-Master.h From that base, gserviceh is understood, in our schoolfs Christian context, as gservice to God,h the starting point for a life dedicated to serving neighbors, society, and others. A way of life that is devoted to creating a better world by utilizing onefs inalienable gifts is the ideal that we members of Kwansei Gakuin continue to seek.
