Student Development

To realize Ehime University’s educational goal of “Sending into society of graduates with outstanding talent who possess abundant creativity, humanity, and sociability and have the self-awareness and pride to be responsible for the next generation,” OPAR approaches student development from two angles: humanity and intellect.

Developing and Strengthening Humanity

Ehime University Leaders School (ELS)

As for the aims of this program, students get over cultural differences and develop their leadership abilities to play active roles in Japanese and the global community.


Student Reserch Project (Project E)

A foremost goal of education at Ehime University is to improve the self-expression skills of our students. OPAR support students as they delve in projects they “autonomously want to study and research” and strive to teach them “the skills to put their ideas into action” outside of the classroom.

Developing and Strengthening Academic Skills

Study Skills Workshop

Study-skills are “skills for studying at University.” The Study Skill Workshop helps students to learn the nine skills required at university: listening, reading, researching, organizing, summarizing, writing, expressing, communicating, and thinking.


First-year Learning (Freshmen Seminar)

OPAR provides support for first-year learning (freshmen seminar). We develop original textbooks for all students and teach many classes for students.


Teaching Assistant Development (TAD)

TAD focuses on development for the TAs who assist the teachers in undergraduate courses. The responsibilities of a TA range from preparing laboratories and distributing materials during class to facilitating group discussions. Besides basic skills required for assisting in classes, TAs must have a firm awareness of their own positions as teaching staff and the accompanying duties.
TAD offers various training opportunities to ensure the TA system that are advantageous for the teachers, students, and TAs alike. OPAR has provided TA seminars for general education and for each major, as well as TA seminars focused on teaching skills.
