Responsibilities as a URA at Hokkaido University

Since assuming the URA position in April 2020, she has mainly been in charge of general university ranking tasks, analysis of ranking results and proposals based on such results, among other responsibilities. In April 2022, Hokkaido University ranked first in Japan and within the top 10 in the overall global ranking in the Times Higher Education (THE) University Impact Rankings 2022. The huge response those rankings drew left a great impression on her.
