24th Aseaccu focuses on Indigenous Cultures and Traditions in Broome

May 5, 2016

The 2016 Association of Southeast and East Asian Colleges and Universities (ASEACCU) Conference will be attended by Asian and Australian academics, University leaders and students to engage in an educational dialogue and experience a range of cultural activities in the heart of the Kimberley. Delegates will connect with their colleagues, learn and gain insights into common challenges and experiences of valuing indigenous cultures and traditions. The conference provides an opportunity for delegates to reflect and inspire positive change and development in their Catholic higher education communities.

Professional delegates and students are expected to attend from Catholic universities and colleges from Southeast and East Asian regions including Korea, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, and Australia. The professional delegates are composed of Presidents/Vice Chancellors or their senior representatives, academics, and Campus Ministry staff while student delegates who will be attending are those with Campus Ministry Links and academic performance together with study areas relevant to the conference theme. The 24th ASEACCU Conference also aims to revisit the goals of ASEACCU as a regional association.
