The Asian Women’s Leadership University (AWLU) Project (also known as the "AWLU Project") is an educational project formed in fall 2010 to establish a global women’s leadership university based in Asia. In summer 2011, the AWLU Project team determined that Malaysia would be the host country of the Asian Women's Leadership University (AWLU). Projected to open in September 2021, the AWLU will be a private, not-for-profit university modeled on the U.S. “Seven Sisters” liberal arts and sciences colleges. The AWLU will combine American-style liberal arts and sciences education with leadership courses and a curriculum regionally relevant to Asia. AWLU will seek promising women from diverse backgrounds to be a part of its vibrant residential learning community.
