On June 20, “Presentation Session for Sabbatical Leave for Research FY2016” took place at Kakuma Campus and 30 faculty and administrative staff attended the event.
Sabbatical leave exempts the faculty’s duty at Kanazawa University for a certain period of time to allow them to concentrate on research in Japan and abroad and aims to improve the quality of education and research. 9 faculty members got sabbatical leave in FY 2014 and 7 faculty members in FY 2015.
President Koetsu YAMAZAKI stated that he’d like the faculty members to actively get sabbatical leave and build global research networks in his opening address. Afterward, 4 faculty members gave presentations about the outcome of the research and the opinions about the sabbatical leave system. Lastly, Vice President Yoshihiro FUKUMORI gave the closing address stating that he’d like the faculty who got sabbatical leave to play active roles in the globalization of faculty.
