Outline of the event


Considering the "expertise" of university staff

As society becomes more complex and sophisticated, the roles required of university staff are becoming even more important, and it is necessary to reconsider the "expertise" of university staff.
The expertise of university staff is being discussed by the Central Council of Education, but the current situation is that it has not been resolved. The keywords for discussion are diverse, such as expertise (ability) and administrators in highly skilled professionals such as URA (University Research Administrator), personnel affairs, finance, public relations, etc., which have been possessed in university administrative organizations so far, and the conclusion differs depending on the viewpoint from which you think.
In this SD Forum, we will discuss with the participants what it means to have the expertise of university staff, how to acquire them, and how university organizations can develop the expertise of university staff.
