About

The Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Centre for Higher Education and Development (SEAMEO RIHED) and the Office of the Higher Education Commission (OHEC), Thailand, are co-organising the SEAMEO RIHED Southeast Asian Higher Education Leadership Forum on Engaging Communities and Empowering Leaders on 1-4 April 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand, in order to further enhance cooperation and synergy at the regional level in higher education leadership and community engagement and social responsibility.

Increasingly, higher education institutions are becoming engaged in their own local communities as well as the communities of their partner institutions around the world. At the same time, the New Normal is changing and redefining the characteristics of institutions and learning experiences. More complex and involving issues are extending beyond borders and across boundaries and requiring collaboration and partnerships with diverse groups working both locally and globally. This has renewed interest in having higher education institutions engage with their communities at local, national and international levels and made clear the need for leadership in an era of disruption.

Building on our experience in conducting Regional Seminars and Fora for the region of Southeast Asia, the SEAMEO RIHED Southeast Asian Higher Education Leadership Forum on Engaging Communities and Empowering Leaders is a four-day regional event that will explore themes of leadership in the new normal context as well as innovative strategies and approaches to university-community engagement and social responsibilities for the region of Southeast Asia, bringing together bright minds to foster learning and inspiration and stimulate discussions that matter for the future of Southeast Asian higher education.
