I spent a week last month in Washington, DC, for the United States-ASEAN University Connection Initiative (UCI).

Around 50 scholars and university administrators gathered in the US capital to discuss and promote educational collaboration between the two dialog partners.

The gathering followed US President Joe Biden’s view about ASEAN as an important region the US needed to collaborate with more intensively.

The World Learning nonprofit organization created the UCI as part of its Increase and Diversify Education Abroad for US Students (IDEAS) program, with funding from the US Department of State.

Representing Indonesia were four academics who had been selected through a rigorous process: Rudianto from Muhammadiyah University North Sumatra, Diena Mutiara Lemy from Pelita Harapan University, Rini Rachmawaty from Hasanuddin University and myself, from Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta.

We participated in our personal capacity.
