Naresuan University becomes a research-based university before 2017
The University has pledged to fulfill the four key missions:
- The University is to produce students who can potentially achieve not only academic excellence but be ethical and moral. The students are expected to be a model for a healthy and peaceful society.
- Applied research is being focused and developed. This includes the communication of research outcomes to the community resulting in economic and social development.
- Activities are varied to appropriately serve the society in terms of wisdom and learning. This will require a proactive role for the university to properly approach each community and be a reliable hub of knowledge.
- The university will play roles in arts and culture conservation, including Thai unique tradition.
