The School of Languages and General Education is dedicated to developing the quality of general education courses in order to achieve the university’s goals. In addition to classroom teaching, the practical skills acquired in the GED65-147 course, focusing on the conservation of natural resources and the environment, aim to stimulate and cultivate a sense of teamwork, communication skills, and the ability to adapt to the changing global environmental conditions, enabling students to effectively solve various daily life problems. The activities such as wilderness trekking, studying environmental systems in the national park, and reducing plastic packaging used during the camp, align with the university’s motto “Excellence, Goodness, and Happiness” and respond to the sustainable development policy (SDG: Sustainable Development) in terms of education and the importance of protecting and preserving natural resources and the climate for future generations.
