FY2020 and FY2021 Foundation Designated Survey Projects

In fiscal 2020, we set two designated survey subjects and one in fiscal 2021 and conducted survey research.

(1) New development
of the Kyoto brand in attracting international students ~Development of a model case based on the University Consortium Kyoto~ 【Challenges for FY2020】

Principal Investigator Noritaka Hashimoto (Ritsumeikan University, General Affairs Department, Secretarial Division)
Research Outline The purpose of this survey is to further promote the internationalization of universities in the Kyoto region from the perspective of accepting international students. Through questionnaire surveys and interviews, we organized the current situation and issues of the University Consortium Kyoto member universities and investigated precedents. Based on these, we propose model cases in which the efforts of each university and the efforts of inter-university collaborative organizations can synergize and contribute to the expansion of attracting international students.

(2) Social network analysis of the role structure played by the consortium Kyoto member universities in the
regional network 【Challenges for FY2020】

Principal Investigator Jun Kanemitsu (Professor, Faculty of Contemporary Social Studies, Kyoto Sangyo University)
Research Outline This survey provides a network analysis of a wealth of data on social capital, industrial capital, human capital, intellectual capital, and cultural capital collected through organizational data of the University Consortium Kyoto, input-output tables of Kyoto Prefecture, questionnaire surveys of member universities, and the "Kyoto Prefectural University Brand Survey" of the Kyoto regional brand. Through statistical analysis, we clarified from various perspectives how the University Consortium Kyoto and its member universities contribute to the production and maintenance of local industries and local cultural resources in Kyoto.

(3) Re-exploration of the core values of Kyoto, a university town: To open up a future of credit transfer 【Assignments for FY2021】

Principal Investigator Hironori Yamaguchi (Professor, Ritsumeikan University Institute for the Promotion of General Education)
Research Outline In the midst of an aging society with a declining birthrate and the progress of globalization, there are movements in higher education institutions to reconsider the essence of inter-university collaboration along with individual reforms, such as the introduction of the university collaboration promotion corporation system.
This survey proposes the future of the credit transfer system, based on the fact that the credit transfer program of the University Consortium Kyoto has been conducted as a learning system that reflects the regional characteristics and advantages of the university city of Kyoto.

Research Report Meeting

This year, three research studies were conducted, including two research studies in FY2020, in which the research period was extended by one year due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and one survey study in FY2021, and a research report meeting was held on March 1. From the viewpoint of preventing the spread of new coronavirus infections, the event was held in a format that combined visitors and online (Zoom webinar), and 52 people from all over Japan participated.
At the debriefing session, proposals were made on the role that the University Consortium Kyoto should play, the future state, and the possibility of new development of various projects for each of the three research themes, and then deepened their understanding through a question-and-answer session.
When asked about the satisfaction of the participant questionnaire, the total of "satisfied" and "somewhat satisfied" was highly evaluated at 100%, and participants also commented that "I was able to discover knowledge that I had no experience in," "I understood the situation of other universities in Kyoto well," and "I was interested in the proposals that should be tackled by the University Consortium Kyoto."
The three research reports are scheduled to be published on the Foundation's website around the end of May.
