Prof. Saran Kaur Gill, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) delivered this presentation for ASEF. The event was held in Chiangmai, Thailand (2-4 November 2011).

Prof. Gill mentioned in her keynote speech: “Participants of the Conference expressed interest in universities’ social responsibility (USR) vis-à-vis community engagement agenda. They were keen to discuss criteria and indicators for quality community engagement.”

Prof. Teay Shawyun, SEAAIR President and Member of ASEF’s ASEM Education Hub (AEH) Advisory Committee, is the main organiser of the Chiangmai Conference.
