|About||Our mission is to create change agents through liberal arts and sciences education.|
With the vision to create change agents from all walks of life, Parami institute aims to transform our youth into effective leaders and responsible citizens through liberal education.
Parami Institute will feature three major programs: (1) Parami Leadership Program, (2) Parami Talk Series, and (3) Parami Conference.
1) Parami Leadership Program (PLP), a flagship program at Parami Institute, will be a semester-long (2 × 2 months) multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary program designed to nurture leadership and liberal education skills such as critical thinking, interdisciplinary analysis, and articulate communication as well as research skills among recent graduates from universities in Myanmar. We will recruit sixteen exceptional students from various ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds to promote the importance of diversity. The prospective students will be evaluated through a PLP entrance test and a rigorous interview. Those from border or migrant areas will be provided housing in Yangon. The language of instruction will be English.
2) Parami Talk Series (PTS) will be monthly talk series featuring high-level speakers from Myanmar and around the world, speaking on global and local issues of the 21st century. It is anticipated that half of the speakers would be invited from regional countries and hosted in Yangon for two nights with the support of Parami Institute. These series will be mediated or presented by members of Parami University Founding Committee. This program will highlight the intricate and complex issues that require 21st century skills such as interdisciplinary problem solving and critical thinking, the hallmarks of liberal education. The talks will be public events with some reserved seats for some guests, while the other seats will be available on a nominal-fee ticket or deposit-fee ticket service to ensure maximum attendance. In addition, the talks will be recorded and made available on our website and YouTube.
