Considering the continuous possible spreading of the new coronavirus internationally and domestically, NAIST has established the Crisis Measures Headquarters to collect information and work with other institutions to prevent any further spreading of the disease.
NAIST has already sent out information about the spreading of the new coronavirus and influenza from the Health Care Center and also information about the raising of the infection danger level from the administration offices, but in order to further prevent any other spreading NAIST will implement the following measures and request your cooperation in these matters.
Please note that we will update or contact you with any further information, etc.

Message from the President
April 21st, 2021
To all NAIST students

Recently, the number of COVID-19 cases in Osaka and Nara Prefectures has increased rapidly and the situation continues to be quite grave.

At NAIST we have continued work with related organizations to implement strict infection prevention measures to protect the health of our students, faculty and staff, and to maintain a safe campus environment.

While, in general, we are currently holding classes in-person, online class participation using the lecture archive system is possible as we try to balance safety and effective educational programming.

For classes held in-person, we will accommodate those students who are worried about their family, the area the live in, or commuting to the campus at this time, so please contact the lecturer in charge.

NAIST will continue to take any necessary preventative measures to ensure that you can have a meaningful student life while protecting the learning environment. We will strive to do this, but, at the same time, your cooperation is of the most importance. Protect yourself from infection while paying attention to your actions and the measures established to protect the people around you.

Considering the current pandemic, the influence our individual actions have on society may be greater than ever. Let's walk to the end of this tunnel together, one step at a time.

SHIOZAKI Kazuhiro
President, Nara Institute of Science and Technology
