Tokai University (東海大学, Tōkai Daigaku) is a private university founded by Dr. Shigeyoshi Matsumae with its headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.

It was accredited under Japan's old educational system in 1946 and under the new system in 1950. In 2008, Tokai University, Kyushu Tokai University, and Hokkaido Tokai University were consolidated and reorganized into Tokai University. Its Chinese character name is the same as Tunghai University in Taiwan.

Sustainable Development

Since Tokai University announced its Environmental Charter in 1997, it has undertaken a variety of environmental activities, including the placement of recycling bins, the creation of energy- and water- conservation seals, and presentations at the Founding Ceremony. Further, in June 2003, Shonan Campus and the Tokai University Junior College of Nursing and Technology Campus were both ISO 14001-certified. ISO 14001 is an international standard of environmental management. Through certification, Tokai University has received international recognition for its commitment to environmental efforts. Tokai University understands this certification, not as evidence of it being “a university that is kind to the environment,” but as the beginning of the creation of a new system where we can engage in even higher degrees of environmental conservation activities.​ 

The university's commitment to global environmental conservation is tied to our founding mission, “bringing eternal peace and happiness to humanity.” Through various educational and research activities, the university will aggressively promote global environmental conservation, and will nurture the development of human personnel who can contribute to “coexistence between people, society, and nature.”
