Seminar to share examples of internationalization efforts of member universities 

 As part of the project to support the globalization of faculty and staff, the Kyoto International Affairs Department of the University Consortium is working to share examples of efforts by member universities for internationalization.

 We are planning to hold a member exchange seminar on the theme of "Acceptance of Ukrainian Kyiv students" at the International Student Study Kyoto Network (Secretariat: Kyoto International Affairs Department, University Consortium), and at the same time, it will also be positioned and held as a seminar to share examples of efforts by the University Consortium Kyoto member universities for internationalization.


"Support for accepting students from Kyiv in Ukraine, including governments, companies, and schools~With the voices of those who have actually evacuated~"

 Currently, various companies, organizations, schools, etc. in Kyoto City are providing various forms of support to evacuees from Kyiv City and other Ukraine. The University Consortium Kyoto and the International Student Study Kyoto Network are participating as advisory organizations in the "Ukraine-Kiev Kyoto Citizens' Acceptance Support Network," which consists of the secretariat of Kyoto City, the Kyoto City International Association, and the Kyoto Kiev Exchange Association.

 On the day of the event, we are planning a roundtable discussion with one Ukrainian about his evacuation experience and representatives of each support group. We hope that this seminar will not only lead to the further promotion of support for students in Kyiv, Ukraine, but also help to deepen understanding of students facing various difficulties around the world and open up many perspectives, such as further raising the international awareness of each member.
