Dear Members of the AIT Family,
I am extremely honored to have been appointed by the AIT Board of Trustees to be the Ninth President of this prestigious institution. As I said at the Handover Ceremony the other day, former President Worsak has done a great job stabilising AIT at a time of severe difficulty and laying a solid foundation. However, I also said at that ceremony that AIT is at a crossroads, and we need new thinking and tough measures to bring AIT to new heights amidst fierce competition in the changing higher education landscape in the region and the world. On Wednesday, September 5, I will share with you my vision on how to proceed to adjust our positioning by being more innovative and relevant, increasing our value and enhancing our connections and global recognition. I invite you to join me if you can!
There are many challenges ahead of AIT, and I ask for your support as I build a team which will tackle the challenges one by one. It will not be easy and we need to be bold and flexible, but together we can do it! See you soon and look forward to hearing from you at any time!
Dr. Eden Woon
