About support for students with disabilities

Showa Women's University expects students to be independent and able to act proactively on their own, regardless of whether or not they have a disability.Some of the students with disabilities who have enrolled and graduated from our university have been very active in their student lives, organizing volunteers to support students with disabilities and giving lectures to volunteer students about the kind of support they need. There are people who are active in society even after graduation.We have established the Disabled Student Support Office in the Student Support Division of the Academic Support Center to provide the support necessary for the education and student life of students with disabilities.In addition, in order to deliberate on basic matters related to support for students with disabilities, the Committee for Supporting Students with Disabilities is established, with the participation of the Academic Affairs Department, Student Affairs Department, Admissions Department, and Career Support Department.
When it comes to actual support, class advisors from their departments, the Support Office for Students with Disabilities, the Student Counseling Office, and the Health Management Office work closely together to provide support in accordance with the philosophy of reasonable accommodation in accordance with requests from students with disabilities. We will provide support.
