Consulting (how to seek advice)


Consulting Offices

Any person seeking advice on incidents of harassment should contact a Harassment Consultant personally or visit a consulting office listed below. If the complainant wishes to remain anonymous, he/she should contact the Consultant personally.

The consulting office will give information on all procedures and advice as to which Consultant to address. Application for consultation or inquiries may be made at the offices, by phone or online forms available on the official University website. The actual consultation cannot take place at these offices, as it requires a room where the privacy of the complainant can be protected.

A third person whose advice is sought by the complainant or who knows the details of the incident of harassment may also apply for consultation.

From the filing of a complaint until assistance to the victim is provided, all information related to consultation will be kept in strict confidence, and the privacy of the complainant will be protected.

(1) Sophia University (Yotsuya campus)

Center for Academic Affairs, Bureau of Academic Affairs;
