The University's Response to the "Declaration of a State of Emergency”



May 13, 2021
Dear Students, Guardians, Faculty and Staff
                  
Nagoya University of Foreign Studies
President Ikuo Kameyama


The University's Response to the "Declaration of a State of Emergency”

More vigilance is required to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. In Aichi Prefecture, "Priority Measures for the Prevention of Spread" was applied from April 20 to May 11, and a "Declaration of Emergency" will be issued from May 12 to May 31. In response to this, the President's Office has carefully considered the university's response to Aichi Prefecture's request for "emergency measures" and has decided on the following policy, for which we ask for your understanding and cooperation.

The university's activity guidelines will be maintained at the current level, as the national government has declared a state of emergency and Aichi Prefecture has not issued a request for schools to close (online classes in principle). Therefore, we will maintain the current level.

In accordance with the class policy for the 2021 academic year, the university has implemented thorough countermeasures against infectious diseases, keeping the number of students in each class to less than one-half of the classroom capacity, and strictly observing the prevention of the three Cs. In addition to face-to-face classes, which are characteristic of a foreign language university and emphasize communication, online classes are also incorporated to ensure sufficient opportunities for students to learn, depending on the characteristics of the subject and the number of students, and in consideration of educational effectiveness.

However, if the infection situation becomes more serious in the future, or if there is a risk of interfering with the educational environment for students, faculty, and staff, we will promptly notify you via the university website, etc., and in principle we may shift to online classes.

The opportunity to learn in a classroom is invaluable in life. All students, together with the faculty and staff of the university, should make renewed efforts to prevent infection and the spread of infectious diseases, and to foster a rich learning environment with health as the top priority. It is important for each and every one of us to take thorough actions to "prevent infection" and "prevent the spread of infection".

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
