KOSS (KOmaba campus Safer Space), a project started in 2020, aims to connect academic research and knowledge with students’ daily lives on campus. We offer a “safer space” on campus for women and minority students, where they can freely discuss issues regarding genders, sexualities and disabilities in a relatively safe environment. KOSS also organizes a variety of mini-lectures and workshops for students on these issues, as well as public events related to diversity & inclusion as part of our outreach efforts.
