Governance Structure and Organization Chart
Governance structure for swift decision-making and governance optimization
In August 2017, Osaka University established provosts and strategic committees to realize swift decision making and optimize university administrative efficiency under the leadership of the president. For an agile management system, two executive vice presidents are named as provosts: a senior executive vice president of university management and a senior executive vice president of education and research. The strategic committees are roughly divided into 3 groups each according to a branch of science: social sciences, engineering sciences, and life sciences. At committee meetings, which serve as places for cross-border communication and collaboration, members are engaged in the planning of strategies and approaches for increasing administrative efficiency.
