About Association of the Universities of Asia and the Pacific (AUAP)

The AUAP is a Non – Government Organization (NGO) holding the highest formal consultation rights with UNESCO. Its primary purpose is to be the main platform for interaction and collaboration among members and the voice of universities and colleges in Asia and the Pacific. AUAP organizes regular conferences and workshops for higher education leaders and institutions, to recognize and discuss important issues and challenges facing higher education today. It is an organization that enhances cooperation among institutions, and is dedicated to render service to its members.

The main missions of the AUAP are to promote a culture of quality and innovation in higher education, research and service to the community; to preserve and enhance the values and cultural diversity of Asia and the Pacific towards better understanding and cooperation for socio- economic development and universal peace; and to maintain a platform for interaction and collaboration among members and be the voice of universities in Asia and the Pacific.

The AUAP organizes varied activities for the staff and students alike. We hold faculty development seminars and workshops, joint research activities, and faculty exchange programs. For the students we organize English speech competitions, student debates, student leadership training programs, student exchange programs and student academic Olympiads.

Very recently, we developed an instrument for determining the readiness of institutions in undertaking internationalization programs. Most importantly, the AUAP will soon unveil its Quality Assurance Instrument for rating institutions based on self-evaluation. These instruments are for the use of our members and non-members also.
