DLSU TAKES PART IN BIGGEST INT’L HEIs GATHERING IN ASIA-PACIFIC
THE DE LA SALLE University expanded its international network by participating in the 2023 Asia-Pacific Association for International Education Conference and Exhibition held in Bangkok, Thailand earlier this month.
The conference aims to promote international education within the region and support international programs, activities, and exchanges.
It is also considered the biggest international gathering of higher education institutions in the Asia-Pacific region.
DLSU was represented by Vice President for External Relations and Internationalization Dr. Laurene Chua-Garcia.
“During the confab, she (Chua-Garcia) was tasked to present the country report where she highlighted the challenges and opportunities of the education sector in the new normal,” the university said.
“Chua-Garcia was also a presenter in the ‘Collegial Partnerships and Mobility’ session. Moreover, she served as a panelist in the ASEAN-Australia TNE Workshop,” it added.
The DLSU delegation also conducted meetings with more than 30 existing and prospective HEI partners to discuss possible collaborations including short-term programs, student and faculty exchanges, bilateral agreements, and other initiatives that could benefit both parties.
The event was the first fully in-person gathering after the pandemic, with more than 2,700 delegates from all over the world in attendance.
