Message from Campus Director


"Isn’t Collaboration the only way we can protect our common home? Great innovations across centuries have risen out of visionary minds, with individual ideas generated into positive energy to transform the world and make lives better. The task ahead of millennials is to further innovations that boost livelihoods, as well as equally distribute wealth to communities. It doesn’t stop there. Humanity has overtime evolved its societal villages into great cities through capitalism. Yet this progress has come at a hefty cost: Mother earth has been degraded and we have caused the end of thousands of species. More than ever, our generation is in dire need of innovations that address climate change. Can we address these challenges? The answer lies right within the mind."
