About Doshisha Women's College of Liberal Arts
The Doshisha Women's College of Liberal Arts was established in 1876.The location was the residence of Jerome Dean Davis (formerly the Yanagihara residence), within the Kyoto Imperial Palace Park. This school was the first in Kyoto to offer women an education based on Christian principles. In April of the following year, the school reopened as the Doshisha Bunko Nyokoba. Jo Niijima, Dean of Doshisha College (now Doshisha University), was the school principal. His wife, Yae, was also a teacher there. In September, the name was changed to Doshisha Girls' School, as the name "nyokoba" had invited misunderstanding. Whereas the school endeavored to teach the liberal arts, "nyokoba" implied it was a place for teaching girls industrial skills, such as sewing and other crafts. In other words, the change of name is evidence that from the earliest years the school aimed to educate women in the liberal arts.

In those days, Kyoto still had a strong leaning towards exclusivity and feudalistic thinking. Construction of a girls' school based on Christian principles was therefore a project that encountered great difficulties. In fact, H.F. Parmelee and J. Wilson, who came to Japan after Starkweather, were not permitted to reside in Kyoto for almost three years. Amid such adverse circumstances, while winning the cooperation of many people, women missionaries sent by the American Christian Mission Board overcame each difficulty in turn. The fortitude and dedication of these women built the foundations of Doshisha Girls' School. Today, more than a century later, the spirit of these women is still at the heart of the image of the women that the university is endeavoring to produce - women who have acquired a sense of independence and consideration for other people, and have the potential to become contributing members of an international society.
