Welcome

The international team of the Asian Women’s Leadership University (AWLU) Project is working to establish a top-level liberal arts women’s university for promising women in Asia. The institution will be based in Malaysia, and in August 2012, the AWLU Project formally presented at a panel hearing regarding its university license application to the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education.
 
Projected to open in September 2016, the AWLU will be a private, not-for-profit university modeled on the U.S. “Seven Sisters” liberal arts & sciences colleges. With Smith College (MA, USA) as the chief academic planning partner, the institution will combine American-style liberal arts education with a leadership and entrepreneurship curriculum that is relevant to Asia. For our students, we will seek promising women from diverse backgrounds to be a part of our vibrant residential learning community.
