JAPANESE ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS ( JAUPES )

< Objectives >

The aim of the Association is to contribute to the development of university education by conducting investigation and research relating to physical education (which, in this pamphlet is taken to include health education and sports), supporting faculty development, and evaluating and commending activity in the field of physical education among our members.

< History >

The Council for University Physical Education and Sports (the predecessor of the Japanese Association of University Physical Education and Sports) was founded in 1952 to establish a program of research into physical education in university education and a structure for communication and cooperation between universities. This happened at a time when universities were being reorganized under the new educational system, which began in 1949 as a result of the educational reforms.
  • In 1962, the name was modified to the Japanese Council for University Health and Physical Education.
  • In 1971, an organizing committee was formed to set up the Japanese Association for University Physical Education and Sports.
  • On October 4, 1973, the Japanese Association of University Physical Education and Sports was established.

< Investigation and research >

1. The findings of the Physical Fitness Test
A report on the findings of the physical strength test has been published every two to three years since the first issue was published in 1977. This work has been a central part of our physical strength investigation program. This report, which is related to our investigation into the physical strength test, is our primary activity and has been published continuously for a quarter of a century.
2. Reporting on University Physical Education
Along with the changes in university establishment standards in 1991, we started in 1955 to conduct a survey of reforms and of the state of the curriculum in the form of a questionnaire given to people who have been university members. We have been carrying out this project every year and giving a report on the feedback obtained to university members every two years. In specific terms, we investigate the way in which the syllabus is presented, the form and role of classes (if they are required for graduation), the contents of lectures, seminars and practical exercises, course evaluations and the state of curriculum reform in the areas of health and physical education.

< Journal >

Since the fiscal year 2004, we have published “ Japan Journal for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, Sports and Dance in Universities” every year for the purpose of improving the quality of practical education and research. Journal articles will be published after being accepted by referees who are members of a specialist committee.

< Publicity and Publications >

The Association’s bulletin was originally named “ Physical Education, Sports and Recreation” was first published on December 1, 1974, by the Japanese Association of University Physical Education and Sports. It is published three times a year and is useful for members as a source of information and as a place to exchange information. After No.15 was published in March, 1982, the name was changed and from No.16, published in July, 1982, it has been named “The University Physical Education and Sports”. Since then, this bulletin has taken on the role of a forum for communication for members of the Association. This bulletin has been sent free of charge to member organizations and to personal members since the foundation of the Association. It includes the latest information about research papers, reports of overseas inspections, the activities of the central and branch offices, minutes of the meetings held at the central office, and research reports, etc.

< Website >

Following the Japanese government’s decision on “the disclosure of information relating to nonprofit organizations by using the Internet” in August, 2001, we have been updating the budget and the accounts statement on our website every fiscal year since January, 2002. The purpose of setting up the website is to report on our activities, not only to the university but also for the benefit of society as a whole, and provide information to members, as well as to spread information about mutual activities among members. The website covers:
  • The activities of the central office
  • Information about workshops and seminars

  • Public appeals for grants

The central and branch offices of the Association hold a total of approximately 20 seminars a year. The content of these seminars includes distinguishing features of the field, recent research and teaching development, and each seminar is explained lucidly by first-rate instructors. In recent years, we have broadened our scope by opening our seminars to other graduate students, not only to incumbent teachers, in order to promote a new generation of trainees.

< Research grant program >

Since its establishment in 1995, the research grant program has served to promote educational research in university sports and physical education. Recipients of this grant system must be engaged in practical research contributing to the progress, development, broadening and improvement of physical education at university level, with a special emphasis on fresh and innovative ideas by university members (including individual university teachers) and personal members of the Association.

Since 1997, we have established a system of public commendation through the university sports and physical education prize and the university sports and physical education honorable mention, in order to promote the development and effectiveness of the universities’ physical education program. In principle, to be nominated for the educational prize or for honorable mention, research material has to have been published, within the previous year (January 1 to December 31), in book form or in a journal related to university sports and physical education or other journal of equivalent standing.
