The ACU partnership with Saint Paul Institute will create opportunities for the two member institutions of the Association of the Southeast and East Asian Catholic Colleges and Universities (ASEACCU), to collaborate in academic and research activities, and to promote research, staff and student mobility programs. Upholding the Catholic intellectual belief in human dignity and the pursuit of knowledge, both ACU and Saint Paul Institute are committed to inspiring hope, nurturing growth and empowering students to become responsible global citizens. Vice-Chancellor and President of ACU Professor Zlatko Skrbis said, “It is exciting to form a new partnership in Cambodia with an ASEACCU member.” “Through this collaboration with Saint Paul Institute, we are enriching academic and holistic development opportunities for our students, and promoting cross-cultural exchange, research collaboration, and the development of impactful bilateral initiatives between Australia and Cambodia.” ACU Pro Vice-Chancellor, Global and Education Pathways, Mr Chris Riley highlighted the importance of this regional collaboration, saying that “the signing of the new partnership agreement, coupled with the recent hosting of the ASEACCU Executive Board at our North Sydney campus, represents a noteworthy advancement in preparation for the 30th ASEACCU Annual Conference that we are hosting next year in North Sydney.” “By contributing to potential cultural exchange, and community development initiatives, we are reinforcing our commitment to making a positive impact beyond the classroom. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for us in bilateral and regional education collaborations.” Director of Saint Paul Institute, Mr Phon Sophal said, “We are truly proud to partner with ACU to foster a rich and inclusive educational experience for all students. The cross-cultural experience will enable students to immerse themselves in a new academic and cultural environment, broaden their perspectives and enhance their global competencies.” Professor Skrbis and Mr Sophal signed the memorandum of understanding in December at the ACU North Sydney campus to celebrate the newly established Australian-Cambodian partnership.
