Engaging the World
Tembusu is a college with a global reputation. It seeks to make all of its members — whether local or foreign — feel part of a global community, and learn how to act and productively cooperate with those different from themselves. Our Rector, Professor Tommy Koh, who is also Singapore’s senior diplomat, dedicates himself every semester to (in his own words), “bringing the world to Tembusu, and bringing Tembusu to the world,” through our flagship Tembusu Forum series, alongside many other events.
