Southeast and South Asia & Taiwan Universities (SATU)
NUS is a member of SATU, which comprises 48 universities from Southeast and South Asia and 82 universities from Taiwan.
As the Southeast Asian region is facing critical challenges in economic, societal, and political structures, there is a need to gather experts and educators to exchange ideas and face shared challenges. The excellence of universities is an important key to enhance a nation's competitiveness. Therefore, former President Chiang Kao of National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan), together with Presidents of prestigious universities of Southeast Asian countries, initiated the "Presidents' Forum of Southeast Asia and Taiwan Universities" (abbreviated as SATU Presidents' Forum) to provide a venue for academics to share their valuable experiences to improve higher education and international cooperation in the region.
Hence, the Secretariat of SATU Presidents' Forum (which includes divisions of Secretariat, Academic Exchange, Student Affairs, and Industry-Academia Collaboration) has been established at National Cheng Kung University to coordinate and to promote the related activities.
SATU Presidents' Forum is held biennially to achieve the following objectives:
SATU seeks to promote its mission to improve higher education and international cooperation through Presidents’ forums and Steering Committee meetings. For further information regarding activities offered by SATU click here.
