The Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), formed in 1997,[2] is a consortium of leading research universities in the Pacific Rim. APRU aims to foster education, research and enterprise thereby contributing to the economic, scientific and cultural advancement in the Pacific Rim. APRU embodies a commitment to global academic and research standards in both its objectives and guiding principles.

From 2012, APRU has embarked on a new strategic framework driven by three priority areas:

Shaping Asia-Pacific Higher Education and Research

APRU universities can together shape the policy environment for higher education and research and influence social, economic, political and cultural forces that impact the future of universities.

Creating Asia-Pacific Global Leaders

APRU universities will cooperate to enhance the global leadership capabilities of faculty, administrators and students – as well as of their institutions.

Partnering on Solutions to Asia-Pacific Challenges

APRU universities will work together and with partners from government and business, international organizations, other universities and community leaders on solutions to regional and global challenges.
