Who We Are
Asian University for Women (AUW) is the first of its kind– a fully independent, regional institution dedicated to women’s education and leadership development.
AUW exists to educate and empower women leaders through the transformative power of liberal arts and sciences education.
What We Do
AUW is a vibrant and diverse residential learning community where incredible women from many cultural and religious backgrounds grow both intellectually and personally and become impactful, innovative, and service-oriented leaders. AUW recruits students from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Yemen, and more.Meet Our Students
Why It Matters
“At a time when there is still so much strife in the world on the basis of our inherited identities, AUW shows that yet another world is possible where young women from different upbringings can come together – first in solidarity with each other, and second in supporting a wider vision of changing their communities together.”
Chancellor, Asian University for Women
