Kyushu Institute of Technology Raises Flag of Condolence – Kyushu University and Fukkyo University Do Not

The response to the national funeral of former Prime Minister Abe was divided among national universities in Fukuoka Prefecture, with Kyushu Institute of Technology raising a flag of condolence, but Kyushu University and other universities did not. As to the reason, Kyushu Institute of Technology stated, “Although there was no request from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the president of Kyushu Institute of Technology made a comprehensive decision. However, Kyushu Institute of Technology said that it would not notify students about the display of the flag because it “does not force students and others to offer condolences. Kyushu University states that it will not do so in order to avoid the misunderstanding that the university is forcing its students and faculty to express their condolences, as it is up to each individual to do so.
