Engagement Thailand (EnT) is a consortium of Thai universities which aims to promote the idea of “university engagement” as a transition from service and volunteering, which most universities already have, to “partnership” between a university and its regional stakeholders, leading to an integration of all three missions of a university, i.e., teaching, research, and service, in a strategic and systematic way to serve society. EnT will be a platform for exchanges, development, research, and advocacy of such university engagement in Thailand and internationally.

EnT has four objectives :

1)      To promote the university engagement mission through strong and integrative  internal planning and management of universities,

2)      To promote and enhance training and capacity building in engagement,

3)      To promote scholarship and scholarly works from engagement activities, to develop criteria and indicators for quality of engagement scholarship, and to install recognition
and reward systems for engagement work,

4)      To share Thai universities’ engagement achievements in international higher education circles.

EnT is launched formally on May 16, 2014. The Founding Membership of EnT consists of 20 Thai universities. It is directed by a Board of Governors, with Prof. Vichitr Srisa-an as Chairman, and supported by two Subcommittees, the Subcommittee on Scholarship, and the Subcommittee on Network and Member Relations. The Knowledge Network Institute of Thailand (KNIT) currently serves as the Secretariat.

Activities of EnT during 2104 will include seminars, training courses, study visits, in-house coaching for member universities, and policy recommendations to the Office of Higher Education and other relevant agencies to promote university engagement. In addition, it will organize the First Annual Engagement Thailand Conference in Chiang Mai during August 28-29, 2014, in cooperation with Chiang Mai University.
