Parami Celebrates its 4th Anniversary with Parami Community

Parami University started as a pilot institute, known as Parami Institute, in early 2017 to provide Myanmar’s youth with the skills they need to become competent leaders and responsible citizens through a global-minded liberal arts and sciences education. This year, on January 9th, marks the 4th Anniversary of Parami, and we are proud to celebrate our milestone together with our students, alumni, faculty, and staff. 

Planting in the community garden

Parami Students, faculty and staff made a visit to Parami University campus in Hmawbi township and engaged in fun activities such as planting five-hundred trees and flowers along hillsides where a terrace for the community garden is located, and painting colorful murals on the sides of a newly built water tank for the school. On January 16th, Parami is holding a virtual event, which includes  performances and networking sessions for alumni and current students, organized by Parami Alumni Working Group to celebrate with the larger alumni community.

“During the past four years, we have gone through our achievements, challenges, and setbacks with resilience. On this journey, one of the initiatives of the Parami Institute—the Parami Leadership Program, which has produced over a hundred students. Some of our alumni have entered the private sectors, contributing to the future economic development of our country, while some are in the education sector, teaching with the aim to produce educated youths in the future. These are all the ripple effects of youths educated at Parami Institute.” — Dr. Kyaw Moe Tun, the president of Parami University

Painting murals with patience and concentration

With the mission to equip young Myanmar graduates with intensive liberal arts education through an interdisciplinary approach, and including critical thinking, analytical and articulate communication skills, Parami started with a semester-long program selecting 16 to 18 outstanding candidates across the country's socioeconomic and cultural spectrum on January 9th, 2017. Later in 2019, Parami introduced a year-long program and welcomed 35-36 students for PLP 6th Cohort. 

In late 2020, we re-structured our organizational components to fit the needs of the university as a whole, which includes two learning institutes and one research centerParami Institute of Undergraduate Studies (IUS), Parami Institute of Continuing Education (ICE), and Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR).
