Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning


Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning

The Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning (ASAIHL) is a non-governmental organization founded in 1956 that renewed operational relations with UNESCO in 2003 [1] to assist higher learning institutions in strengthening themselves through a mutual self-help and to achieve international distinction in teaching, research and public service.

The Association exists to foster the development of the institutions themselves, the cultivation of a sense of regional identity and interdependence and liaison with other regional and international organizations concerned with research and teaching. ASAIHL serves as:

  • A clearing-house of information
  • Provides regular opportunities for the discussion of academic development and general university development
  • Assists member institutions in the recruitment and placement of faculty and staff
  • Exchanges of professors and students and in the development of co-operative arrangements on specific projects
  • Provides advisory services of consultants
  • Strengthens the relationship with regional and international bodies and keeps member institutions informed about developments in the region
  • And recognizes and acknowledges distinctive achievements among Southeast Asian institutions of higher education
