Issue & Task
<English Version of Course Syllabi>
In Faculty Assembly Meeting on November 30, 2016, it was reported that our university should complete the English version of AY 2017 course syllabi. This will help UoA international students make a class schedule and prospective students understand the course content easily. In addition, the English version of course syllabi is a part of TGU Concept. The intermediate evaluation for the TGU Concept of UoA will be implemented in 2017, and we need to report our achievements from 2014 to 2016 to MEXT. Therefore, we would highly appreciate your understanding and cooperation on this matter.
