Historical Materials Center

The Doshisha Women's College of Liberal Arts Records Center was renamed from the Historical Materials Room in 2016. By inheriting and further developing the work of the historical materials room that was established in 1994 (its predecessor was the D.W.C.L.A. Material Collection Committee (established in 1991)), its purpose is to collect, organize, store, and operate historical materials related to Doshisha Girls' Schools, Women's Vocational College, and the Women's University, and to contribute to research and description of their histories. In addition, these materials are released and exhibited appropriately so that the general public, as well as students and faculty members, can broaden their understanding of the history and traditions of the university. There have been 20 exhibitions so far, and in the year 2000, we edited and published the commemorative photo magazine "Doshisha Women's College of Liberal Arts 125 Years".

Request for Materials Related to the History of Doshisha Women’s College of Liberal Arts

Doshisha Women’s College of Liberal Arts history has been supported by many graduates and related parties for 140 years since our foundation, but there are not enough materials to fully illustrate our history. For this reason, the Records Center is constantly striving to discover new materials. We are proactive in providing materials and information about Doshisha Girls' Schools, Doshisha Women's Vocational Schools, and Doshisha Women’s College of Liberal Arts to students, graduates, parents, and the general public, as well as our faculty members and related parties. We would greatly appreciate your cooperation.
