About HU

Gender and Sexual Diversity Initiatives

Hiroshima University was established with the vision of realizing “a single unified university,” free and pursuing peace. Based on this principle, we strive to accept a wide variety of individuals, respect each individual’s autonomy, eliminate discrimination, and establish an environment in which all our members can fully demonstrate their capabilities to the fullest extent possible without any worry.

In addition, the Hiroshima University Charter (enacted on December 27, 2021) pledges that the University, in all its activities, will not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind in relation to ethnicity, nationality, religion, belief, gender, economic or social status, or disability, and will respect and protect the human rights and individuality of each person.

To implement specific measures toward realizing our ideals, we hereby formulate the Policies for Respecting Gender and Sexual Diversity, based on which we establish response guidelines.

The guidelines have been in effect since April 2020 for items regarding students, and April 2023 for items regarding faculty, staff, and partners.
