Background and Purpose of the Research  The purpose of this study is to conduct a basic survey to clarify the role of the Foundation in promoting recurrent education that contributes to solving regional issues facing Kyoto, such as fostering traditional industries, promoting small and medium-sized enterprises, utilizing female human resources, and aging society, and the issues of launching recurrent education courses at universities and other institutions.
In order to respond to rapid changes in the social structure, there is a need to promote recurrent education that provides lifelong learning opportunities. However, the number of working adults enrolled in universities in Japan remains at a low level compared to the international level, and the establishment of programs for working adults is sluggish on the university side, and human resource development by companies is still centered on in-house training and training. Kyoto is a unique "university city" in the world where 48 universities and junior colleges with a wide range of academic fields are concentrated in the region. The promotion of recurrent education that utilizes such knowledge resources accumulated in the region is effective in solving regional issues facing Kyoto and Japan society. However, recurrent education covers a wide range of subjects, educational content, and educational methods, and there is a limit to the ability of each university to develop its own educational programs. It is expected that the University Consortium Kyoto will not only be effective in promoting the establishment of recurrent education courses at member schools and the challenges of individual program development, but will also provide a model for consortiums nationwide.

Background and Purpose of the Research  The university world has undergone drastic changes, such as the rapidly declining birthrate and aging population accompanied by a declining population, accelerating globalization, and the advent of Society 5.0, and university integration and bankruptcy are finally becoming a reality. The university of the future will not exist as a loose extension of the experience accumulated so far. Therefore, university staff who support it are required to make a big leap forward.
The University Consortium Kyoto has conducted a large number of SD training programs well ahead of the SD mandate. The principal investigator has used various programs as a user of these trainings. Since fiscal 2013, I have been involved in the planning, operation, inspection, and improvement of training as an SD training committee member. At the time of the training, questionnaires were obtained each time to confirm satisfaction and the quality of the program, but it was not always clear how much impact each training had on the participants, in what span, and what kind of effect they had on each organization.
In order to create systematic training to bring about a leap forward for university staff, it is essential to accurately measure the effectiveness of current training. In addition, it is necessary to go beyond the framework of the existing SD concept and investigate, research, and verify from the perspective of human resource management theory from a broad perspective of different industries.
The purpose of this survey study is to make recommendations for the construction of systematic SD training in the future through (1) confirmation of the current situation, (2) comparison with human resource management in different industries, and (3) comparison with similar programs.
