On Monday, August 1, 2022, Associate Professor Suradech Chotiudompant, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, together with Assistant Professor Nirada Chitrakara, Associate Dean, met online with Assistant Professor Jonathan Chua, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, Ateneo de Manila, the Philippines. The meeting concerned possible collaborations including students/staff exchange programs and joint research/seminar/conferences. The partnership is promising because both institutions specialize in similar fields of studies and have similar organizational structures. The first collaborative activity is likely to be a joint online seminar on comparative literature.
The above meeting is part of the Faculty of Arts’ effort to connect with renowned universities in ASEAN. Ateneo the Manila is among the top four universities in the Philippines which also include the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Santo Tomas University, and the La Salle University.
