Working together to build a campus for all
Kumagaya ･ Namiki Laboratory
Until now, people with disabilities and other minorities have been positioned as research subjects; however, they have rarely been the ones conducting the studies. In this project, we work with several organizations within the university, including the Disability Services Office, the Environmental Science Center, and the Center for Research and Development of Higher Education to create an academic climate where diverse individuals can participate in research activities. The project aims to realize an inclusive campus where no one is left behind by proposing the design of university institutions—“knowledge factories”—from the perspective of people with disabilities and other difficulties, taking in both the “structure” of the institution (the institutional and physical environment) and its “culture” (the customs and attitudes rooted in people’s values).
