Thammasat University – The University for the People
Thammasat University (TU) is the second oldest university in Thailand, teaching more than 33,000 students and employing more than 2,700 academic staff. Inaugurated in 1934 with social science and humanities to serve society’s thirst for modern knowledge, it is known as “the university for the people” and has since expanded its remit to include science, technology, and health.
Thammasat places an emphasis on sustainability by teaching the humanities, social sciences and STEM subjects in an environment that aims to create a “smart university”. This goal is being reached by introducing energy saving and renewable measures on campus, and by creating and implementing new technology that is environmentally friendly.
As Thailand shifts its political agendas towards meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Thammasat University has become central to coordinating research and policy while helping to prioritise the country’s social mobility.
Thammasat is the first university in Thailand who has received an award on “Cultural Change for Sustainability” for its campaign to reduce single-use plastics from the International Sustainability Campus Network (ISCN) during the 2020 ISCN Awards Ceremony on 14th May, 2020. Thammasat is leading by example in setting its own targets to become a fully sustainable “smart university”.
Thammasat University, by Faculty of Economics, is also a co-host of Sustainable Development Solutions Network – Thailand (SDSN Thailand) from March 2020 until February 2022.
