Thammasat University (TU) was established on 27 June 1934 making it the second oldest and most prestigious public university in Thailand. Throughout its 88 years since its inception, Thammasat University’s Faculty members and students have played a leading role in various social and political movements which have influenced the making of Thailand’s contemporary societal, economic and political landscapes. Most prominent was in the 1970s when the University became the epicentre of student uprising which called for political reform and the people’s freedom’s to be protected via a new constitution and the restoration of parliamentary democracy. This long tradition for upholding freedom, democracy and ethics as reflected in the University’s motto, “I love Thammasat because Thammasat teaches me to love the people, still continues in contemporary times. Notable examples include the 2011 floods when the University became a temporary shelter for those who had lost their homes and in 2021 when the University offered to be a vaccination centre in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
