On June 30th, 2020, AY2020 The 1st meeting of the Committee for Review and Evaluation of the Top Global University (TGU) Project was held.
The Committee for Review and Evaluation of the Top Global University Project reviews and evaluates regularly our progress and effectiveness of the TGU initiatives.
In order to evaluate objectively, the committee is comprised of not only university members but external experts.
AY2020 is an important year as our efforts built up over the year will be evaluated through Top Global University Project Mid-term Evaluation by MEXT.
At the meeting, achievement of AY2019 Activities were reported and members of the committee reviewed and evaluated them.
In AY2019, a three-stage ("Local", "Domestic", "Overseas") internship program was established, and a part of the program was supported by external funds, which made an achievement of a self-sustaining project. In addition, initiatives of "Aizu Geek Dojo" and "Challenger Badge for extracurricular activities" were highly evaluated due to the growing number of particpants.
Further, the increase of participation in the Honors Program and the increase of application for the Advanced ICT Global Program have led our projects to run consistently. Achievements of AY2019 were highly evaluated and the comprehensive evaluation was "A".
Then the AY2020 action plan was reported and discussed.
Particularly, how to work on TGU project in the post COVID-19 era, for example, changing plan under the influence of COVID-19, new activities for the class and overseas programs, and so on was discussed.
