About the Student Support

Greeting from the director

 The Student Support, Nagoya University is a newly launched organization that was reorganized from the Student Support Center on April 1, 2021. The Student Support Center itself is a new organization established in April 2019, based on the Center for Student Counseling established in 2001, for the purpose of further enhancing support for students in accordance with the changing times. However, as the spread of the new coronavirus disease has had a serious impact on the physical and mental health of students, the importance of student support has been reaffirmed, and this has led to another reorganization. In April 2020, the Tokai National Higher Education and Research System was established. This reorganization has enabled us to build a strong framework for collaboration with Gifu University in student support.

The Student Support Center consisted of three offices: the Student Counseling Office, the Career Support Office, and the Office for Students with Disabilities. The Student Counseling Office becomes the Student Counseling Center, the Career Support Office is now the Career Support Center, and the Office for Students with Disabilities changes to the Ability Support Center. The change of name from “Office” to “Center” is not just a change of signboard. Each center will be able to respond to the needs of students more autonomously and flexibly under the direction of the center director, and a consistent student support system is in effect from admission to graduation. In addition, we have decided to change the name of the former Office for the Students with Disabilities to the “Ability Support Center” in order to provide support that not only addresses disabilities but also enables each student to demonstrate his or her individuality.

 Have you ever consulted with a specialist about your studies, career paths, or physical and mental health? In school education, the mind of independence and self-reliance is often emphasized, and it may have been considered undesirable to consult with others about one’s problems. However, school life up to high school and campus life at university are very different. The scope of your activities, both physically and in terms of human relationships, expands rapidly, and your relationships with the people around you become more complex. Under such circumstances, when a problem arises, it is not feasible to try to solve it all on your own. In addition, with the spread of the new coronavirus infection, I believe that there are many students who are worried and troubled. Even if they want to share the anxieties and worries, the current situation in which students are not able to interact with each other in the same way as in the past is probably making them suffer even more. However, keeping your anxieties and worries to yourself will not lead to a solution in any way. It is natural for people to have worries. And the worries of adolescents are not the same in quality and quantity as before. If you have worries, you should not be afraid to talk about them with the people around you. If you feel uncomfortable talking to those around you, please visit the specialists at the Student Support. In the Student Support, there are experts who can help you with your problems and support your campus life. All of us at the Student Support will do our best to support you so that you can enjoy a richer campus life and leave for the world safely.

    My sensei taught me that in the university years, transformation from being a “consumer of knowledge” to a “producer of knowledge” takes place. In the same way, until your high school years, you have been told to accomplish things on your own without relying on your parents, but in your university years, you are required to change the channel to a style in which you can be “independent while being moderately dependent” on your parents, faculty and staff, seniors, friends, and juniors. Learning how to be “moderately dependent” can be a difficult task despite its simplicity. Counselors work to help you to adjust such a balance.

    It is very meaningful to have time to “think about yourself” while you are a student. By asking yourself what you have always valued and what kind of life you want to pursue in the future, you can get a clearer picture of yourself. However, in everyday university life, it is quite difficult to find the time to think about yourself in depth. Why don’t you come to the Student Counseling Center and make time for that?

    How do you imagine the Student Counseling Center? According to the results of a questionnaire that we conduct every year for new students, the answer that “it is a place that has nothing to do with me” stands out. This could be interpreted as new students being very energetic and far away from problems, but on the other hand, it could also be due to the image that seeking counseling is a weak or pampered thing to do. However, if you think about your long life, I believe that the ability to rely on someone when you need is your strength. Please feel free to use our support.

    Do you have a “buddy”? It doesn’t necessarily have to be a person or an animal. I believe that your important hobbies and collections can also be a great buddy. University life is full of fun, but there may be times when things don’t go as expected, and you may feel tired, lost, or troubled. This is when you should remember your buddy. At the Student Support, we can work together to find a strategy to overcome with your buddy the difficulties. Please feel free to come and talk to us. You might even find a new buddy!

    There are times when you may have struggles with your relationships with those around you in classes, labs, club activities, etc., or you may suffer from stumbling blocks that you have never experienced before. If you experience symptoms such as depression, lack of motivation, sleeplessness, anxiety, etc., or if you have any trouble, please do not keep it to yourself and contact to us. Also, if you see students around you who seem to be struggling alone, please talk to us. We can discuss how to deal with the problem in a consultation or refer you to a medical institution if necessary. We offer medical services in the hope that your university life will be a fulfilling one.

    The university has a place where students can seek consultation. I am in the Mental Health Division of it. It provides consultations with psychiatrists on mental health issues and also deals with psychiatric diagnosis/medication if necessary. Actually, the consultation includes mental symptoms, but it is often “normal concerns”. This may surprise you. I hope that we can work together to find out what you want to ask and know about your problems, without making a big deal out of the idea of a psychiatrist.

    feel reluctant …
    A psychiatrist may seem like a somewhat inaccessible person. It may be because when you go to a crowded clinic in the city, you may be told casually, “You’re not sick, so you don’t need to come here”. But there is a big issue here. For it is assumed that only those who are sick should come for treatment. In reality, this is not the case. In psychiatry, it is hard to determine what constitutes a disorder. Regardless of whether you are sick or not, even if you are not troubled by anything but because people around you say you should go, we are good at dealing with such issues, so please come to our Mental Health Division.

This is my fifth year working at the Career Support Center and currently I am in charge of the supervision. With the development of innovative IT technology and the impact of the Corona disaster, the human resources required by companies and the way of thinking about recruitment are about to change. As the director of the Career Support Center, I would like to innovate and improve the education and opportunities provided by the center to meet the needs of companies and students.

    Job hunting is an opportunity to face yourself, and “deciding for yourself” on the way leads to building your path. In making small choices and big decisions, there are times when you need courage. When you have hesitations that require courage, it may be when you are struggling hard to find the answer for yourself. I would like to help all of you who are working hard to find the answers for yourselves.

    I would like to support you in thinking about your career after graduate school. Please feel free to use this service even if you don’t have a clear idea of what you are worried about.

    The word “disability” does not have a clear outline as is commonly believed, for instance, many people with weak eyesight are able to live their lives without problems with the use of glasses. Whether or not someone has a “disability” is determined in the environment in which they live. “Disability” is not considered as a “personal attribute”, but as a matter of “relationship” with the surrounding environment, and “support” can be thought of as “adjustment of the relationship”. I believe that my work is to provide this kind of “support for relations”.

Besides students, I have also worked with people with different values, from young to elderly, who come to me to help them cope with their difficulties in life. Possibly, my experience with people who have similar difficulties to yours can be helpful to you. I would like to respond carefully to each individual’s needs of psychological counseling, environmental adjustment, etc..
