Regarding the announcement of the English name of Osaka Koritsu [Public] University

On Friday, March 12, 2021, Osaka Koritsu [Public] University announced a decision to change its English name from “University of Osaka” to “Osaka Metropolitan University.”

Our university’s official English name is "Osaka University"; however, as “University of Osaka” had already been used as a synonym for “Osaka University” overseas, we asked Osaka Koritsu University to reconsider the English name for the university that they had announced last year. We were concerned about the possibility that the name they had announced might cause confusion among researchers and students overseas and cloud the futures of the two universities.

Osaka University is deeply grateful for Osaka Koritsu University's deliberate decision to reconsider and change its English name. On the occasion of this announcement, Osaka Koritsu University and Osaka University have agreed to discuss the conclusion of a comprehensive cooperation agreement and aim at building a successful partnership.

We are delighted that this issue has been resolved in a favorable manner in which both universities have agreed to promote their global development and deepen mutual understanding moving forward.

Osaka University once again expresses its sincere appreciation for your understanding and support.

NISHIO Shojiro Osaka University President
