About the Center

The Nagasaki University Center for Diversity and Inclusion (formerly the Center for Gender Equality; name changed on September 1, 2015) (nicknamed the OMOYAI Center*) was established in the 2010 academic year as a base for promoting gender equality at Nagasaki University.

We support efforts for active promotion to.
