Yale-NUS College is about mutual benefit, not loss: a summary of Dr Jeremy Lim’s April 11th, 2012 piece in the Straits Times

Dr. Jeremy Lim writes in the Straits Times that he believes that the entire Yale-NUS saga underscores the importance of the collaboration for Singaporeans and Yale.

Singaporeans will benefit from a liberal education, and learn to cognize of world issues differently.  Yale has the opportunity to project its “soft-power”, and “shape and be shaped by the Asian Renaissance”.

At its core, the project is about “educational exchange” which requires empathy and a better understanding of each other.  Both parties should also learn from each other and cooperate for mutual success.
