Shizuoka Eiwa Gakuin University (静岡英和学院大学?, Shizuoka Eiwa Gakuin Daigaku) is a co-educational private university in Shizuoka city, Shizuoka Prefecture Japan.

History[edit]

The Shizuoka Eiwa Girls’ School was founded in 1887 by missionaries from the Methodist Church of Canada with the support of the Shizuoka prefectural government, and continues to be affiliated with the Methodist church. It was the first institution in Shizuoka Prefecture to offer secondary education for girls.

A two-year Shizuoka Eiwa College was established in 1966. A third year program in English language and Japanese literature was added in 1992, which became a four-year coeducational university in 2002. Today over 1400 students are enrolled in two- and four-year programs.
