Purpose

In today’s rapidly changing societies, teaching, learning, research and their management on campus need effective and efficient organizational structures staffed with quality human resources.

Recent revisions and emendations to the higher education laws and regulations of Japan dictate the furthering of cooperation between faculty and staff and the obligation of staff development, thus necessitating changes in awareness and mutual understanding through future discussions.

The coming forum is intended to provide chances to learn from the experiences of experts in academe and quality assurance circles about their practices and to help shed light onto possible courses for improving the quality of faculty and staff as well as options for their respective roles on campus.
