Appointments for harassment-related consultations

  1. Appointments for harassment-related consultations on campus can be made with the Consulting Office or the Harassment Consultant.(∗)

    If you should have any questions about the procedures to be taken from consultations to resolution, or which Harassment Consultant you should contact, please do not hesitate to ask the on-campus Consulting Office.

    If you wish to see a medical expert instead of the Consulting Office and Consultants, please make an appointment at the Health and Wellbeing Center Health Services (*former Health Center) in advance (tel:03-3238-3396).

    Depending on the situation of COVID-19 infections, the application method for consultations may be partially changed.

  2. An Off-campus Harassment Consultation Desk can also be accessed by phone, in writing, via e-mail or through the website. Please refer the page of Off-Campus Harassment Consultation Service .

On-campus procedures to be taken from consultations to resolution

  • Please make a request via “Consultation forms for harassment cases” button below.

  • If the complainant wishes to talk with a Consultant of the opposite sex, or if the complainant consults on three or more occasions on one case of harassment, two Consultants will be appointed to address the case.

  • The Consultant will offer consultation and help find a solution to the case.

  • Should there be any offensive behavior by the complainant against the Consultant, the Consultant may refuse to provide the service or suspend it.

  • If the problem cannot be resolved by consultation, a request can be made to the Complaint Committee to arrange a mediation by discussion between the complainant and the accused or a complaint can be filed with the Prevention Committee.
    Only the person who was harassed can apply for mediation or file a complaint
  1. In the event a consulter applies for mediation and the other party agrees, the concerned parties engage in discussion on resolving the problem in the presence of the mediators.
    Mediators present a mediation proposal for reconciling the claims of the parties, and a mediation shall be concluded if both parties accept the mediation proposal
  2. When a complaint is filed, a fair investigation will be conducted to confirm the facts.
    Once the facts are confirmed and a case of harassment is recognized, appropriate measures will be taken to assist the victim and punish the harasser.
