The UPRIZINE's New Year's Resolution


To kick off the new year (and semester), we've revamped the UPRIZINE entirely to make it more accessible and easier to navigate.

Since the launching of the zine, it has been brought to our attention that the purpose of our site has not always been clear. And so, for the first article of the year, we would like to address our goals for the semester as well as what to expect from us here on out.

What are the UPRIZINE's goals?

We aim to address problems students have on and/or off campus which are unique to TUJ and living in Japan. We also aim to expose and raise awareness about said problems, and to make available discussion on their solutions and possible remedies. Part of our goal in raising awareness focuses on gender issues, which are often passed by (especially in Japan). Finally, we aim to continue the road towards change we've already started within part of the TUJ community- in December 2017 TUJ updated their website (Student Services & Counseling Office) and Student Handbook (page 21) to include more extensive information on sexual misconduct.

What do we wish to accomplish within the TUJ community?

We would like to establish a more tolerant and inclusive environment for all groups of people- women, POC, LGBTQ+ etc.- and we want to give a voice to these students. We also aim to make it harder for oppressors and perpetrators to get away with their actions+make sure they are held accountable.

What do we expect from TUJ?

From the administration, staff, and faculty, we expect discussion, support, and resources. We would like to be able to hold an open dialogue on finding solutions to the problems we are addressing in order to create a better environment for everyone at TUJ.

What to expect from us this semester

We will continue tackling difficult but important subject matters on a broader range of topics. We will also be opening an art tab to showcase talent at TUJ. And of course, change, change, and change!

How to get involved and/or keep up with the UPRIZINE

Finally, we would like to wish everyone a warm welcome (or welcome back). Thank you for reading us and we will continue to bring you new content throughout the semester.
