The ASEAN University Network (AUN) Secretariat carries out the operations of the AUN as determined by the AUN Board of Trustees and university rectors/presidents/vice-chancellors. The Secretariat is divided into multiple units based on their primary responsibility. 

The Secretariat grounds its work based on 3 fundamental principles:

  1. Intelligent Secretariat

We are driven by intelligence. This intelligence manifests itself in two forms. One is that knowledge is the basis for all our decisions. The other is that our works are based on innovative designs and fundamental principles. 

  1. Trustworthy

Our name and our presence is a stamp of reliability. We are constant and vigilant in our delivery of quality, relevant, and impactful work. 

  1. Cosmopolitan 

We do not constrain ourselves to any limits because we understand that to be the best we can be, we must look beyond our confines as well as extract all we can from within. Only by looking at international quality standards within our region can we truly be the best Secretariat we can be.
