Overview of the business

In fiscal 2018, the name of "Kyoto FD Executive Department's School" was changed to "University Executive Department Juku".

Since its establishment in 1995, shortly after the establishment of the Consortium of Universities Kyoto, faculty members have been promoting FD activities in the Kyoto area together with member universities as an organizational initiative to improve and improve the content and methods of classes.
This project has been held since 2010 as a study group for university executives, including the presidents of member schools of the Foundation.
In the meantime, SD has become mandatory due to the revision of the Standards for the Establishment of Universities in April 2017, and university executives are required to provide training not only on FD but also on university management in general, and in order to cover not only FD but also university management in general, this project has also changed its name to "University Executive Department's School" in 2018 in order to cover themes related not only to FD but also to university management in general.

Outline of the event

University Executive School (25th Anniversary Commemorative Lecture)

2019 University Executive School (25th Anniversary Commemorative Lecture) will be held!

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of its establishment, the Consortium of Universities Kyoto has decided to expand the scope of the "University Executive School," which is held every year for university executives, and to hold a grand lecture to commemorate the 25th anniversary.
As the first university consortium organization in Japan, the Foundation has been collaborating with member universities and junior colleges in collaboration with the Kyoto region, industry, the business community, and local governments. During this period, the environment surrounding higher education institutions has been changing rapidly due to the decline in the 18-year-old population, the advent of Society 5.0 due to the advancement of AI and IoT, the advent of the era of 100-year lifespans, and accelerating globalization.
Based on these social changes, Kyoto Seika University President Oussby Sako will give a lecture titled "Globalizing Society and the Future of Japan Universities."
Even those who are not usually directly involved in university management are encouraged to participate as an opportunity to learn about the situation surrounding the university.
