The Secretary General of the Office of the Higher Education Commission (OHEC) Mr. Apichart Jeerawuth chaired a ceremony to open a new signboard for Thepsatri Rajabhat University in Nakhon Sawan on 30 March 2013. He made a donation to establish the Funding of Thepsatri Taklee and gave awards to people who had made contributions to the university.
Mr. Apichart then talked about the policy of developing universities to become academic institutions for local communities. He said that universities in local areas should give more opportunities for education and should serve the needs of local people, communities and organizations. They should take three major issues into account: teachers, educational materials and service to students.
