Departmental Bulletin Paper
In Japanese universities，it is the moment when a curriculum reformation begins at liberal arts. An educational reformation that changes physical education from a required subject to an elective one has caused problems in physical education. Under the influence of this reformation，the question then arises about physical education for the disabled students.
The purpose of this paper is to show the problems of physical activity courses for disabled students in Japanese universities. Using the data from 38 universities. in Japan，we made an investigation on 6 items: syllabus; condition of taking the class; risk factor for continuity of physical education for the disabled; contents of the physical education，facilities; some cases that resulted in success.
The following results were obtained: (1) The conditions of teaching staff，facilities and contents of physical education are essential to teaching disabled students. (2) In many cases disabled students do recreational sports (table tennis，badminton，flying disc，etc .). (3) Important things are five items: trust between a teacher and students，creativity of teaching materials，offer of information on sports for the disabled，and encouragement in a management of teaching. (4) There is few network of teaching disabled students in Japanese universities.
As it is the time when the "raison d'etre" of liberal arts in Japanese universities is asked， physical education in liberal arts should prepare the physical activity course for disabled students.
