■What's MIS?
MIS(Multilateral Interaction with Students)is a student-led organization at the University of Tokyo which aims to develop responsible leaders of the next generation. In order to do so, MIS designs environment in which students, despite disparities, get to proactively “debate” with one another to “take action.” MIS offers such an environment as it is essential for students “to broaden their horizons” and consequently, develop “awareness about societal problems and societal responsibility.”
