Regarding Recent Media Reports concerning Sophia University

We would like to apologize for the concern caused by reports in some of the media concerning the wages of our part-time lecturers.

Although some reports have been misleading, we have continued to communicate with the Labor Standards Inspection Office on several occasions since its recommendation for corrective action has been issued. We will continue to sincerely consider their advice and act accordingly.

We would like to ask for your kind understanding that we are refraining from disclosing the details of the individual cases due to the ongoing consultations and discussions with the Labor Standards Inspection Office.
