Welcoming Division Leaders

This September, Asia-Pacific International University was pleased to welcome leaders from the Southern Asia-Pacific Division (SSD) and the Northern Asia-Pacific Division (NSD), divisions of the Seventh-day Adventist World Church.

The region of Thailand is included under the leadership of the Southern Asia Pacific Union Mission (SAUM), which is under the SSD. The SSD is composed of the following 14 countries: Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor-Leste (East Timor), and Vietnam. According to the official website of Seventh-day Adventists, “the Adventist Church in this division counts more than 1.1 million members.” About 1.5 billion people are within the region of the NSD, making it the largest division in the world by population, yet, only about 3 percent are Christian (www.adventist.org). The countries included in the NSD are as follows: China, Japan, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, and Taiwan.

Bangkok has become a popular location for division conferences and meetings, and the University welcomed conference attendees to visit the campus. The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) and Human Resources (HR) Conferences for the SSD were back to back in Bangkok. From September 5-7, 2016, approximately 450 Adventist leaders from missions, conferences, unions and major institutions throughout the Southern Asia-Pacific Division (SSD) territory attended the LEAD conference, a first ever division-wide event, according to the SSD Communications Office.

Mr. Ryan Keough, Vice President of University Advancement (VPUA) and others from the University staff represented at the conferences at booths and short talks. About 50 delegates from the SSD visited campus after their conferences. The delegates were pleased learn about how the principles of holistic Adventist education were being applied on this campus.

Following the SSD conferences, the NSD Summit was also held in Bangkok from September 19-21, 2016. About 20 visitors came to Asia-Pacific’s campus. Dr. Sung Ik Kim, President of Sam Yook University in Korea, was amongst the visitors, and he was pleased with our campus facilities.

Asia-Pacific International University is a member of the 114 Seventh-day Adventist institutions around the world. Adventist education is synonymous with holistic education, which integrates faith and health principles into academic learning, thus developing the whole person. Asia-Pacific was honored to have these distinguished representatives visit, and looks forward to future potential collaborations.

2016 Sept Youth Alive 72

P9080486

“Reach Up, Reach In, Reach Out with God” Youth Alive Training Sessions at Asia-Pacific International University, Thailand

by Cassandra Morgan, BA Applied Theology, 2018

Youth Alive is a positive peer prevention program, jointly sponsored by the General Conference’s Health, Youth, Education and Family Ministries. Asia-Pacific was glad to host the division-wide core group trainer’s conference, held September 8-12, 2016.

Pr. Jobbie Yabut, Director of Youth Ministry for the Southern Asia-Pacific Division, gave the opening speech, presenting the theme of “Reach Up, Reach In and Reach Out with God.” He shared how the theme represented the strategy for youth leaders. Pr. Jobbie said that we must first have a connection with God (Reach Up) before we can minister to youth in the church (Reach In), and also reaching out to the community (Reach Out with God). He also used an interesting example of teamwork in the relay races of the Olympic Games, and how as spiritual leaders focusing on teamwork, we can have a faster race time than simply running alone.

The Youth Alive program originally began in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s as a drug prevention program aimed at serving young people below the age of 30. Over the years it developed more towards evangelizing young people through a health focus. In the Southern Asia Pacific Division (SSD), it began in 1994.

Youth Alive training and its content has grown over the last 20 years. SSD Health Ministries Director, Mrs. Lhalaine C. Alfanoso, DrPH, said, “20 years ago, the only staff for Youth Alive was Pr. Abraham Carpena (former Health Ministries Director), Joe Rey Dayahan (Youth Alive trainer), and I.” Mrs. Lhalaine shared that some of the issues in the SSD for youth are suicide, low self-esteem, peer pressure, and teen pregnancy. She explained that Youth Alive incorporated “friendship groups” (aka. care groups or small groups) which use both health and spiritual related materials

At the Youth Alive training sessions, it was explained how to form and utilize friendship groups in local communities to develop positive, peer bonding that also encourage youth to form healthy relationships with Christ. Friendship groups are comprised of no more than twelve members and are maintained for a minimum of one year. The goal of forming a sturdy, personal foundation with Christ in each youth helps them to make decisions that glorify His name and build them up in God’s Kingdom. Helping young people lead healthy lives will also inspire others around them to do similarly. The friendship groups also encourage youth to stay away from at risk behaviors that could potentially damage their health or that of those around them.

Core group training took place on campus all weekend long in the Fellowship Hall. Where lectures, instructional presentations and workshops were given to all the attendees. There were also fast-forwarded activities that gave the core group trainers hands-on experience with some of the games that should be used in local groups.


There has been discussion of the future of Youth Alive to have “Wellness Summits” which would be like conferences for youth leaders, friendship groups and youth in general to attend and learn about physical and spiritual health. Youth Alive uses the method of Integrated Evangelism Lifestyle (IEL). This is a method which presents both health and spiritual principles, and ultimately, Christ as our Healer and Savior. May God bless the Youth, Health and Youth Alive ministries as they work together to serve the youth of the Southern Asia Pacific Division.

2015-2016 Internal Quality Assurance Report

Written by

IQA 1

2015-2016 Internal Quality Assurance Report

by Sajaporn Sankham, QA Director

Introduction

Asia-Pacific International University is committed to providing quality education for its students. Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) evaluations are conducted regularly by external assessors along with University faculty and staff providing the necessary reports on programs and academic and extracurricular activities. The following provides a detailed report of the assessment from June, July and September 2016.

 

IQA 2

 

Program Level

During June 2016, each Program of Study at Asia-Pacific International University underwent an Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) visit by a 3-member assessment team. Each team consisted of two assessors from outside institutions, and an assessor from another Program of Study, with an external member chairing the team. 

 

This year’s scores were generally overall higher than those received last year. The assessment committees reviewed each Program’s performance based on six components: 1 component that deals with regulatory standards (1 indicator), and 5 additional components with 13 indicators. The IQA regulations allow Programs that are accredited by a professional body (University) to be exempted from an annual IQA Assessment. The Mission Faculty of Nursing’s Program received a 4-year accreditation term from the Nursing Council for 2015-2019, and the University Council approved exemption for this Program from 2015-2019. So the Nursing Program is only required to report results for component 1. The following is a summary of the components and quality of scores.

 

Component 1 Regulatory Standard. All programs complied with regulatory standards for 2015-2016

Component 2 Students. Nine out of twelve programs achieved ‘Good Quality’ scores, while three program achieved ‘Medium Quality’ scores

Component 3 Graduates. All programs received ‘Medium Quality’ scores

Component 4 Instructors. Five out of twelve programs achieved ‘Good Quality’ scores, while seven program achieved ‘Medium Quality’ scores

Component 5 Curriculum, Learning/Teaching, Learner Assessment. All programs received ‘Good Quality’ scores

Component 6 Learning Resources. All programs received ‘Good Quality’ scores

 

The minimum passing average score at the Program level is 3.01, which is equivalent to ‘Good Quality’. Nine out of twelve programs achieved scores indicating ‘Good Quality’. The other three programs received scores indicating ‘Medium Quality’. 

 

Faculty Level

During July and August 2016, each Faculty underwent an internal quality assurance visit by a 3-member assessment team chaired by an external team member. These assessment committees reviewed each Faculty’s performance based on 5 components consisting of 13 indicators. The following is a summary of each component and the scores received. 

 

Component 1 Graduate Production. Two faculties achieved ‘Good Performance’ scores, while other four faculties achieved ‘Fair Performance’ scores.  

Component 2 Research. Two faculties achieved ‘Good Performance’ scores, while the other four faculties achieved ‘Fair Performance’ scores.  

Component 3 Academic Service. Four faculties received a score of 4 out on a ranking scale of 5.

Component 4 Preservation of Arts and Culture. Three faculties received a full score of 5. 

Component 5 Administration and Management. Three faculties achieved scores indicating a ‘Good Performance’ level of performance. 

 

This year all faculties received scores higher than 3.00. For most Faculties, these scores showed significant improvement from those achieved in 2014-2015. The minimum passing score at the Faculty level is 3.51, which indicates a level of ‘Good Performance’, and two out of six faculties achieved scores indicating a ‘Good Performance’ quality level. The remaining four faculties received scores indicating a ‘Fair Performance’ quality level.  

 

Institutional Level

On September 2, 2016, a 5-member Internal Quality Assurance assessment team chaired by an external member reviewed the performance of the Institution based on 5 components, which are comprised of 13 indicators. 

 

Component 1 Graduate Production. The scores for all indicators increased from last year except for Indicator 1.4 FTES, because some satisfaction scores for services provided to undergraduate students were less than 3.51.   

Component 2 Research. The indicator for this component that received a low score was Indicator 2.2, which is Financial Support for Research and Creative Works.   

Component 3 Academic Service. This year’s score was lower than last year’s because of a change in the Institution’s target organization.  

Component 4 Preservation of Arts and Culture. This year the university received a full score of 5 for this indicator.  

Component 5 Administration and Management. This component received scores indicating that a ‘Very Good Performance’ level of quality was achieved. 

 

The Institution received a score for 2015-2016 which was a little higher than the previous year. The most significant area of improvement was in the scores achieved for Component 2 for Research, which average score increased from 2.91 to 3.40.

Wai Kru Day - In Appreciation of All Teachers & Mentors

Wai Kru Day/Thai Teacher’s Day

In Appreciation of All Teachers & Mentors

Linda Lagason, English, Faculty of Arts & Humanities

Teacher’s Day around the world is celebrated in honor of teachers. Unique to Thailand, Wai Kru Day, or Teacher’s Day, celebrates and honors not only teachers in the classroom but all who contribute to sharing wisdom including parents, religious leaders, relatives, and friends. Celebrated on the first Thursday at the start of every academic year, Wai Kru Day is marked by the giving of "paan" and flower garlands in honor of educators. Wai Kru is an integral part of Thai culture and fosters a deep appreciation for wisdom and education within the cultural traditions of Thailand.

Asia-Pacific International University celebrated Wai Kru day on Wednesday, August 31, at the Kiti-Tasanee Auditorium. The Student Administration Office coordinated the event to honor teachers and all those who contribute in making our institution a center for holistic education. Dr. Danny Rantung, University President remarked, “This day is dedicated to appreciating all teachers, not only those who teach in the classroom but also all staff and administrators who work together to ensure that students achieve their highest potential.”

Wait Kru 2

The formal celebration saw presentations of songs and poetry for the special enjoyment of the teachers, after which the administrators and deans were ushered to the stage to receive elaborately decorated ‘paan’ from the students of each faculty and also from the SC team. Mrs. Kritsadaporn Lekasuwan, at the beginning of the ceremony, detailed the significance of the flowers traditionally used for decorating the ‘paan’ such as the Ixora or “dok khem” and Eggplant flowers which symbolized the character of teachers, students and also the journey towards gaining wisdom. The ceremony was then followed by presentations of floral garlands and posies to teachers. Mrs. Ritha Maidom-Lampadan, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, commented that the ceremony was a solemn reminder for teachers of the heavy burden that they must bear and forces them to meditate upon the question of whether they are up to the challenge of meeting the expectations.
Dr. Danny Rantung, on behalf of all the teachers, presented each faculty a gift in appreciation of the ‘paan’ presented during the ceremony.

Pastor Somchai Cheunjit, President of the Southeast-Asia Union Mission and the Chair of the University Board, ended the auspicious event with a special prayer for both teachers and students of AIU in which he asked the Lord to bless the students and teachers of AIU in a very personal way so that they become a beacon of faith in Muak Lek and Thailand.

Linda Lagason, English, Faculty of Arts & Humanities

The Convocation Service was held at Kiti-Tasanee auditorium on Wednesday, August 17, to officially mark the beginning of the 2016-2017 academic year. The packed floor and balcony of the auditorium witnessed the awe inspiring march of lecturers, staff and administrators onto the stage. Resplendent in their regalia, the faculty represented 79 different universities and 25 different countries.

Mr. Damrong Sattayawaksakul, the university’s newly appointed Vice President of Academic Administration, introduced the faculty members and noted that the university now employs 104 faculty members in both teaching and support positions either in the Muak Lek main campus or in Bangkok.

Jay Lawrence, president of the Student Council, noted in his report that there are 1,102 students currently enrolled in AIU coming from 37 countries. The newest additions to the countries represented include Cameroon, Bulgaria, Mexico and Finland.

University president Dr. Danny Rantung congratulated new and returning students for choosing AIU as their home and expressed his hopes that they become individuals who are fascinated with knowledge. ‘Perseverance’, he noted, was what separates successful individuals from their lesser peers. “Whatever it is, keep fighting, keep moving on and don’t give up!” He challenged students and faculty alike as he welcomed them into the new academic year of 2016-2017.

300 Trees Planted in Honor of HM Queen Sirikit

300 Trees were planted at Asia-Pacific International University on June 22, 2016 in honor of HM Queen Sirikit’s birthday. Guest of honor, Muak Lek Chief District Officer Ponlawat Thianchaimongkul gave words of dedication and planted one of the trees. The District of Muak Lek contributed 140 trees (Afzelia Cochinchinensis / ต้นมะค่า; Blackwood). The University contributed 160 trees (Pink Shower / กัลปพฤาษ์). Students planted their trees with identification labels, so that in future years they can look back and see how their tree has grown. This type of environmental activity teaches students to care for their environment and community. Events like this honor the Queen as the mother of Thailand, and most of all God, who has entrusted us as stewards of His creation.
