< has ended> [For faculty and staff] The 17th Kansai Roundtable Meeting for Students with Disabilities Support Staff was held on September 15 (advance registration required, free of charge)

The Consortium of Universities Kyoto will hold the "Kansai Student Support Staff Roundtable for Students with Disabilities" (KSSK) as follows, with the aim of exchanging persons involved in disability support work at universities in Kansai.

In this 17th session, we will provide a topic about the efforts and issues of the Osaka University Campus Life Support Center. In addition, the subcommittees are divided into three themes: "Support System," "Introduction to Support Practice," and "Support Practice," and opinions will be exchanged on how to support students with disabilities. 
If you are a faculty member or staff member who is involved in supporting students with disabilities at a university or junior college in the Kansai area, or who is interested in supporting students with disabilities, please join us.

≪ Contents≫

With the enactment of the Act on the Elimination of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities, the necessity and responsibility of each university to support students with disabilities has become clearer. Under such circumstances, there are many universities where the development of support systems and system creation are issues. Therefore, this time, I would like to introduce the support system and the current situation of practical work at Osaka University, and use it as a reference when promoting the development of the system at each university.
