Diversity Promotion Support System for women Project Faculty members
Atsushi DEGUCHI, Dean, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences
We have implemented a system to support women Project Researchers in becoming Project Faculty members. Our graduate school supports a portion of their salaries. This system leads to opportunities to gain practical experience in education and academic affairs. To continue their activities after life events, the term of this system will be prolonged to a maximum of 10 years. We hope that women Project Faculty members will serve as role models for female students and researchers.
