Abstract

With the official opening of the city campus in January 2006, SMU marked a new chapter in the history of central Singapore and became an integral part of the area s continual cycle of renewal. Building on the legacy of venerable institutions in Bras Basah that formed the educational hub of yesteryear, our aim is to produce visionary leaders for tomorrow, imbued with a fine sense of ethics and social responsibility for the good of the community.

From its beginning, SMU has been a catalyst for the future development of higher education in Singapore. Two ways that we have done so are the successful experiment with the publicly funded private university model and the implementation of an American-style pedagogy. The third way in which we have acted as change-agent has been through the physical placement of the University in the heart of Singapore, with the resulting interchange of city life and university life
