URA career path

Hokkaido University has designed a tenure-track system specifically for the URA to allow them to acquire tenure after a five-year appointment period. This system further advances the specialization of URAs and clarifies their career path, allowing them to become versatile university administrative and management personnel.

In addition to using external consulting companies and developing an ability-evaluation menu, a hierarchy has been established that enables URA with high-level management skills to be promoted to Chief URA and Senior URA. The university is also considering a framework to promote the increased mobilization of URAs and staff with related positions and to establish a path that will make it possible to transfer to the URA position from other positions.
