Background and Purpose of the Research  In response to the enforcement of the Act on the Elimination of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities in 2016, universities have urgently needed to identify and improve the physical environment on campus and improve the software and service environment that supports education and research, starting with the establishment of a support coordinator for students with disabilities. In addition, the forms of support such as reasonable accommodation for students with disabilities vary widely, and the individual knowledge and know-how of the staff in charge who responded to the support are not shared, and depending on the employment status of the staff, they remain buried and are not shared both inside and outside the university.
By constructing a database that covers the knowledge of each university's efforts, the progress of efforts to eliminate discrimination against persons with disabilities at universities will increase significantly with the enactment of the "Act on Promotion of Elimination of Discrimination on the Grounds of Disability" in FY2016, bringing it to the level of or exceeding that of developed countries of UD, and further creating new initiatives to eliminate discrimination against persons with disabilities. The purpose is to present the possibility of projects centered on the University Consortium Kyoto. In particular, the purpose of this program is to "visualize" the tacit knowledge and skills of faculty and staff in charge, such as know-how for constructive dialogue and consensus building with related faculty members, methods of enlightenment and information dissemination, accumulated by the support coordinators for students with disabilities at each university in the course of their practice, and to present guidelines that can be shared with university staff who have not sufficiently established an organization to support students with disabilities on campus.
