Higher education’s contribution to sustainability

Siam University promotes global awareness and responsibility among its students and staff. The university offers green environmental study and green lab as a part of general education for student’s regarding of their disciplines of study. Sufficiency Economy is also offered as a subject course in our general education aiming at promoting senses of responsible consumption among our students. Moreover, we also have the policy that the University itself should act as the role model in environmental management. The concept of this sustainability is under three main objectives to provide Knowledge, Engagement & Higher Education under Sustainability concept. The Siam University provides visibility and critically examined one of the most significant trends: the growth of the theory and practice of engagement as a key feature in the evolution of higher education. This is performed with the approach to challenge the engagement by higher education institutions in the larger society in an integrated manner: it had explored ways in which engagement enhances teaching, learning and research; it also had approached engagement in ways that accept the multiple sites and epistemologies of knowledge, as well as the reciprocity and mutuality in learning and education through engagement. We teach how university-community engagement evolves nowadays and proposed to go beyond by offering new visions and ways for the future. And we also invite the international academic community to jointly analyze how to build transformative knowledge to drive social change.
