Active recruitment of female faculty members
Kaoru SEZAKI, Director, Center for Spatial Information Science
At CSIS, we’ve long been employing female faculty members. For example, we employed a female full professor in 2019. This tradition was further strengthened last academic year. As such, in recent open recruitment (one associate professor and one project assistant professor), two female researchers were hired in the latter half of AY2021.
