In December of 2018, Kansai University established the KANDAI for SDGs Promotion Project under the President, and the University strives to achieve the philosophy and objectives of the SDGs―to leave no one behind―on a global scale.
Kansai University strives to build a sustainable university, including the development of human resources who can think and act based on an awareness of the global environment, the creation of environmentally friendly campuses, and environmental preservation activities both on and off campus.
Internal Quality Assurance
In February of 2017, Kansai University formulated a policy of internal quality assurance, and the university strives to improve the quality of its educational, research, and social contribution activities while also promoting initiatives aimed at explicitly clarifying that such activities are at a suitable level.
To promote independent learning by students, Kansai University strives to set up an educational environment that takes full advantage of digital technology, including education that utilizes ICT based on the assumption of a BYOD approach. The spread of digital technology into various aspects of daily life and the utilization of various services and data are urgent tasks in terms of forging a path through the unforeseeable future and resolving social issues. At Kansai University, we believe that DX (Digital Transformation) will be a driving force for both converting existing systems and achieving social change.
The Kansai University Self-Assessment Committee conducts self-assessments aimed at improving our University's level of education, achieving our social mission, and actively publishing related information for society.
Substance Abuse Prevention Initiatives
Using past policy results as a reference, Kansai University continuously plans, drafts, and collects information pertaining to activities intended to raise awareness of illegal drugs and similar issues.
Passive Smoking Prevention Initiatives
On October 1, 2011, Kansai University made its grounds and facilities no-smoking zones with the exception of designated smoking areas. The University is also strengthening its initiatives to further reduce the number of smokers in the hope of achieving a truly smoking-free school.
