Ehime University has two types of educational activities: “regular education” that is included in graduation requirements, such as classes and research, and “extracurricular activities” that are voluntary activities of students, such as clubs and club activities. The “Associate Curriculum” is a set of activities and student support activities. The characteristics of “semi-regular education” include: (1) greater emphasis on student initiative compared to regular education, and (2) faculty members taking responsibility for the content of the activities and providing appropriate guidance. In “quasi-regular education,” student initiative is particularly emphasized and is expected to be of great benefit to students during their studies and after graduation.
Ehime University leaders School (ELS)
The philosophy of ELS is “to produce student leaders who contribute to the revitalization of the university and the creation of society by acting responsibly to achieve the goals of the organization.” By developing and supporting student leaders and potential future leaders, we aim for their personal growth and the revitalization of the university with students at its core. We train leaders who can exercise leadership and contribute to society after graduation.
West Japan Student Leaders School (UNGL)
This is a program to learn the leadership required to play an active role in the local and international communities through step-by-step exchanges from within the university to within the country, from bilateral to multilateral, transcending differences in standpoint, generation, and culture. The program aims to nurture “leaders who continue to learn” and fly from universities in western Japan to the world through experiences that emphasize connections not only between universities but also with the local region and the world, such as industry-academia-government collaboration projects and planning and organizing international conferences.
Student Campus Volunteer (SCV)
The University has the Student Campus Volunteers (SCV), a group of nine organizations. SCV is a university-recognized volunteer organization that works to create a better university with the support of faculty and staff.
Other activities include

A service-learning program in which Japanese and Indonesian students work together in local communities under the SUIJI Consortium, which consists of six universities in Japan and Indonesia.
