We held Conohana Week from October 1st to10th, 2014♪
On September 29, we co-hosted a seminar “Acquirement of External Funds” with the Research Education Organization and the University Education Center. The turnout was around 60, and we shared useful information for conducting research not only with female researchers but also with many faculty members and graduate students. We would like to express our thanks to Dr. Noriko Shiomitsu who accepted our request to be the guest speaker, and those who participated in this seminar.

＜Conohana de Art＞
We held an art exhibition at Interactive Space (room B1-214) from October 1st to 17th♪
Various works of art borrowed from students and faculty members were displayed.
By the works made by families, some staff members with children of similar age seemed to be stimulated.
By the photo of fishing results, some students who love fishing were curious where the photo was taken.
By the sculptures made by the instructors at the Arts Management Course, the students of the course were fascinated and examined the details.
We enjoyed momentary “Autumn for Art” this way!
