President Masahiko Isobe gave a commencement speech encouraging the graduating students, "Given that the concept of sustainability involves avoidance from the crisis of life, the realization of sustainability leads to guiding society as far as possible from the crisis of life. It means that each us should move away from the danger of life and create an environment where we can live our lives. At the same time, however, we should be able to convince our one-time life. Furthermore, whether or not you will have a satisfying life is a matter for each of you. No one will give you a solution instead. Therefore, I would like you to think about your life very carefully first and I would like you to determine the direction you should take and live your life in the future. I sincerely hope that your long life will be fulfilled,."
