UTokyo D&I Campaign 2022

UTokyo D&I Campaign Logo

The University of Tokyo has launched a campaign aimed at promoting diversity and inclusion on campus, and making the university a place where people from diverse backgrounds can thrive. The initiative, called UTokyo D&I Campaign 2022, started in March 2022.

The campaign’s aim aligns with the principles laid out in UTokyo Compass, a statement of the university’s guiding principles announced in September 2021 and put forth under the leadership of President Teruo Fujii, who took office in April the same year. The statement sets out to promote dialogue and realize three basic principles: creation through dialogue, diversity and inclusion, and reimagining the university as a place anyone in the world would want to join. It reinforces the university’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, and this campaign is a part of the drive to promote and realize these principles.

Among the campaign’s planned projects are the establishment of UTokyo’s declaration of diversity and inclusion, and the introduction and adoption of a specially commissioned logo to add visibility, cohesion and unity to its activities. The campaign will also provide opportunities for faculty, staff and students to interact with each other and engage in dialogue open to society, as well as participate in activities to foster awareness and encourage behavioral change toward the realization of diversity and inclusion.
