President Renta Nishihara
Dear all students,
Currently in Tokyo and Saitama, the declaration of a state of emergency has been extended until Thursday, September 30, 2021. We, in accordance with this, continue to put the restriction level as Level 3 (basically only online classes are conducted. Only when the permission is granted, in-person classes including mixed style of classes are allowed provided that the measures of viral prevention are fully taken.) at Rikkyo University.
In future, however, when the declaration of a state of emergency is lifted on Thursday, September 30, we will switch the restriction level to Level 2 (Mixed style of classes (synchronous<one-way and two-way> online classes with in-person classes) is encouraged, and online classes (live and interactive session, live and non-interactive session, on-demand video session) are allowed provided that the measures of the viral prevention are fully taken.) on Monday, October 4, 2021.
If the semi-emergency coronavirus spread prevention measures are not enforced and the number of infected people indicates a remarkable improvement, we are ready to switch the restriction level as Level 1(In-person classes will be conducted as we pay the utmost attention to the viral expansion. Online classes will be also conducted.) immediately. Therefore, please be prepared to resume in-person classes on campus.
We conducted the University COVID-19 vaccination (September 11 to 14) and will conduct the first additional vaccination scheduled as below.
【Niiza Campus】Saturday, October 9 & Sunday, October 10
【Ikebukuro Campus】Monday, October 11 & Tuesday, October 12
Note: those who may be vaccinated are Rikkyo students and faculty and staff.
Please keep in mind that even if you are vaccinated, you should continue to take basic preventive measures including wearing non-woven fabric masks, washing and sanitizing hands and social distancing.
Thanks to your dedicated effort to study and spend your life in a sincere manner, I think we are beginning to see a sign of full recovery to the original campus life. As the President of Rikkyo University, I am very grateful for your cooperation during these difficult times. Even in today’s COVID-19 era, I really hope that students and students as well as students, faculty and staff work together face to face to create a new campus, in which they may learn profoundly together.
