Study / Research Support Services
Shonan Fujisawa Information Center (Shonan Fujisawa KIC)
The Shonan Fujisawa Information Center (Shonan Fujisawa KIC) manages and operates the Campus Network System (CNS) and the computers installed on campus, and provides students with various information on the network and computers. If you have any questions about CNS or the installed computers, please contact the CNS service counter at the Shonan Fujisawa Information Center.
On the first floor of the Media Center is the AV consultant service counter where you can borrow audiovisual equipment and inquire about the use of the Fab Space. The student consultant provides support for students in their learning, research, and creative activities by leveraging their own knowledge and skills.
All full-time faculty members in the Faculty of Policy Management and Faculty of Environment and Information Studies have designated "office hours" once a week during which they provide students guidance and consultation in their individual research laboratories. Students can freely visit not only their home class advisors or mentors but also any faculty member for guidance and consultation.
The Media Center provides a variety of databases including newspaper articles and academic journal papers within and outside Japan, corporate information, and legal information. Many of them are accessible from outside the campus. Database Search Space is also available on the second floor of the Media Center. At the Reference Desk, you can ask librarians how to use the databases or how to search for materials and documents.
The Media Center is equipped with computers and software capable of editing images, videos, and audio, as well as equipment for producing things from digital data, such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and digital embroidery machines. We offer support for students in creating content and products using the equipment.
Research Grant System (CDP Section)
SFC has established various campus-specific systems to support students' learning and research activities.
The research grant system differs from scholarships in that it supports students' research activities. Each grant system has its own objectives which focus on specific research themes and methods. Students are encouraged to apply for the grant system that matches their research activities and goals.
The selection is based on the research plan and grant money usage plan.
Students selected for the research grant are required to submit a research report and an expense report at the end of the research period. In addition, they may be asked to deliver a presentation to report research results at the joint presentation session.
