APRU has come of age since its founding in 1997. With great foresight the APRU founders realized that the 21st century would be the "Pacific Century". It is clear that the Pacific Rim is becoming the political, economic, and cultural nexus for the entire world. With our 42 world class institutional members, APRU has risen to global challenges and has grown from strength to strength. APRU now oversees a broad spectrum of activities and programs that address these challenges. Underlying this is the realization that APRU has an important role to play in pooling human resources, advocating the education of future global leaders, promoting the betterment of societies and creating a sustainable future.
APRU will increasingly become the gateway to the Pacific Rim region on matters relating to higher education, as well as industry and government. In actively searching for solutions to global issues and challenges, APRU seeks to continue contributing to the economic, scientific and cultural advancement in the Pacific Rim. We invite you to explore our site [www.apru.org] and join us in sharing in the challenges and the opportunities of the Pacific Century.
