― UTokyo D&I Campaign 2022 ―

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. Here, we introduce plans and actions related to D&I initiatives from members of the UTokyo community, including deans and directors of various UTokyo organizations.

Disability, accessibility, and inclusive higher education

Mark BOOKMAN, Project Researcher, Tokyo College

During the UTokyo D&I Campaign, I have written several blog posts dedicated to disability and accessibility in Japanese and global contexts. I have also delivered three invited lectures, two conference presentations, and five workshops at colleges in Japan and the United States on topics related to inclusive higher education, as well as six industry speaking engagements. Additionally, I have taught one undergraduate seminar class: “Towards an Inclusive Society.”
