【Application Closed】Recruitment of Researchers for the 2016 "University Consortium Kyoto Designated Survey Projects"

The University Consortium Kyoto (hereinafter referred to as the "Foundation") has set designated survey themes and conducts research by researchers in specialized fields with the aim of contributing to the improvement and review of projects, new development, and sophistication. This time, we are looking for researchers (research groups) who will work on the 2016 designated survey projects as follows.

Designated Survey Topics

We are looking for researchers to work on the following designated research projects. We look forward to receiving applications from more researchers. For details, please check the application guidelines below.

 "Research on the Role of University Consortium Kyoto, a collaborative organization for university support for students with disabilities"

Background on the theme

 The reasonable accommodation provisions of the Act on the Elimination of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities are scheduled to come into effect in April 2016, and since the prohibition of discriminatory treatment of persons with disabilities and the prohibition of "non-provision of reasonable accommodation" are mandatory at national universities and private universities are also obliged to make efforts, expanding support for students with disabilities has become an urgent issue at universities, and the establishment of support offices for students with disabilities and the enhancement of employment support systems are being promoted.

 However, there are many issues, such as the fact that each student has a different disability, the needs associated with it are diverse, the need for support that is appropriate for the time of admission, enrollment (study, student life), job hunting, etc., and the need for support across departments within the university.

 Currently, each university is accumulating knowledge and examples of reasonable accommodation that should be provided to each university, but there is a limit to the efforts of individual universities alone to respond to a wide variety of disabilities and wide needs, and it is considered necessary to cooperate with related departments and share information.

 Therefore, this time, we will conduct a fact-finding survey of the initiatives of the Foundation's member schools and advanced cases in other countries and regions, identify issues, grasp needs, etc., and use this as a clue to consider the role and direction that the Foundation should play in supporting students with disabilities.

Outline of the research sought

(1) Survey on the actual situation of support for students with disabilities at member schools.

・Examples, implementation systems
, issues, etc. (2) Collection of case studies at advanced universities and inter-university collaboration organizations in other countries and regions.

(3) Based on the above, propose specific initiatives that the Foundation, which is an inter-university collaborative organization, should implement in support for students with disabilities.

Image of utilization of research results

(1) Establishment of a collaborative organization that connects university departments, external support groups, and companies and governments that support students with disabilities.
(2) Development of seminars and training programs for members of the Foundation (schools, governments, and economic organizations).
(3) Utilization for students with disabilities in foundation projects involving students.
