NUCB International College strives to cultivate the next generation of global leaders, offering diverse opportunities for students to develop leadership skills. One such opportunity is the 'Student Council,' which started its activities in mid-October, 2023.
The "Student Council" empowers students by engaging them in school management through five councils, each responsible for a respective area of school life. Elected in early October, council members actively work to improve school and boarding life by collecting student input, proposing enhancements, organizing events, and providing valuable insights to the school managing team.
This academic year, five councils have been launched. The Admission and Events Council coordinates actions to promote the school and programmes. The Arts Council organises monthly lobby concerts to showcase students' artistic endeavors. The Engage / Club Council established five clubs, including volleyball, basketball, soccer, weight training, and art, based on student preferences. The Boarding Council plans events and proposes rules to enhance boarding life. Additionally, the Student Life and Well-being Council focuses on student well-being, including anti-bullying measures.
The House Leader Council coordinates four groups called 'Houses,' which all students belong to across different grades. The House Leaders Council is responsible for planning and managing many school events, such as sports festivals, closely tied to the points awarded to each House.
At NUCB International College, students from 16 countries with diverse thoughts and backgrounds collaborate in their learning. Through such council systems where students actively participate in school management, students listen to others' opinions, discuss problem-solving methods and improvement proposals, and gain opportunities to implement them. Through these opportunities, students develop the ability to collaborate with empathy for others, honing the qualities of future global leaders.
NUCB International College is designed to provide a world-class education with excellent facilities and a rich natural environment, on its 200-acre campus, in Nisshin city, Japan.
The case method, first developed at Harvard Business School in 1922 and now commonly used in elite academic institutions worldwide, is incorporated into the teaching approaches for leadership education at NIC. Small classes enable personalised supervision by multinational faculty members with master's or doctoral degrees and faculty from affiliated top business schools. In addition, the Summer School for prospective students (July) and a preparatory course (the Bridging Programme) for September admission are also offered.
The school provides a safe and secure co-educational boarding environment with reference to international boarding standards. 'House Supervisors', who are well versed in psychological and health management, provide daily support and regular individual counselling to ensure optimal support and guidance for each student. Through living together with peers from different cultures and experiences, students develop the qualities required of the next generation of leaders.
