From February 2019, as part of initiatives to promote diversity, the University is encouraging the inclusion of a notification text for those who require accommodations on promotional materials for lectures, events, etc. organized by the University, and the provision of reasonable accommodation upon request throughout the University.
(Notification example) To those who require accommodation
Attendees who desire accommodations (PC speech-to-text interpretation; sign-language interpretation; guidance at venue; securing of seats), including those bringing children, should inform us at least three weeks before the date of the event. Upon consultation, we will accommodate your request to the greatest extent possible.
The following are examples of anticipated questions and how to accommodate. Please implement the following when organizing a lecture, event, etc. If you have uncertainties regarding accommodation, please consult with the Office for Promotion of Equality and Diversity. We will offer an accommodation method after inquiring about the request and the organizer’s circumstances.
For PC speech-to-text interpretation or sign-language interpretation for those with hearing disabilities, please complete the procedures outlined in the “Procedures for Requesting PC Speech-to-Text Interpretation or Sign-Language Interpretation Services (Japanese)”
Based on the concept of Universal Design and our aim to create an inclusive campus, information related to gender-neutral / accessible restrooms, childcare facilities, as well as barrier-free facilities such as entrances, slopes, and elevators can be found on this map.
Please contact the Office for Promotion of Equality and Diversity if you wish to request reasonable accommodations or if you experience difficulties in your working environment. The privacy of those who contact the Office will be protected. Furthermore, consulting with the Office will not result in unfair repercussions.
