• Class System and Support System organized by Faculty Members, Student Groups authorized by the University


    Organizations consisting of staff and faculty members of the university have been established to support students' life. These organizations are established at three levels; class, school and college, and university level, to provide guidance on campus life and hear students' opinions and requests.

    Class System

    A class is a fundamental organization whose constituent members are students of this university. A class is not a unit to participate in freshman seminars, foreign languages, physical educations, or information processing, but rather a guidance unit for career options, learning and living. Every class has an instructor who discusses matters of mutual interest such as education activity and student life, in addition to counseling students.

    Support System Organized by Faculty Members

    The aim of this support system is to improve students' campus life and provide various services for them.

    • - Class level: Support system by faculty members by a class
    • - School and college level: Gakurui/Senmongakugun Gakusei Iinkai
    • - Campus level: Gakusei Seikatsu Shien Shitsu [Office of Student Walfare]

    Students closely interact with faculty members to address various issues on their campus life. Opinions and requests proposed by the students are submitted to the university president or university vice presidents through this system.

    Support by Faculty Members

    This support system consists of faculty members who are in charge of students by a class. The faculty members participate in the Gakusei Tanto Kyoin Kaigi [Meeting for faculty members who are responsible for students] and provide guidance based on the decision made at the meeting.
