Description

This study introduces Tsuda University’s Inclusive Education Support Division (IES) programs, demonstrating a Japanese example of supporting students with disabilities. Our purpose is to promote ‘inclusive’ accommodation. We argue that IES would provide an alternative model for disabled student service (DSS) in higher education. Further, this study explores steps for creating ‘inclusive’ accommodation through IES’s two projects— Scene Description and Community Events in light of the current situation. We will describe the future of ‘inclusive’ accommodation with a consideration of all stakeholders in the community.
