Implementation Report

On Saturday, June 20, 2015, the University Consortium Kyoto held the "2015 Kyoto FD Executive School."


We welcomed 31 participants, mainly from the university executive committee, including the presidents of the 50 member universities, and Dr. Takahiro Ohno of Waseda University gave a lecture titled "The Challenge of University Education Reform through Waseda Vision 150." The lecture was very specific and thought-provoking, from the transition and formulation process of the medium- to long-term plan until the creation of Waseda Vision 150, to the keys and main issues of realizing Waseda Vision 150, and although the lecture was given in a limited time after the general meeting of the consortium, many participants said that they would have liked to hear it more closely.

In the post-questionnaire from the participants, "It was highly specific and informational," and "I learned the importance of creating a vision for 20 years from now and setting numerical targets, as well as the system and methods of initiatives." Comments such as "I was able to think about the current situation of my own university from the situation at Waseda University" were received.
