The IUPUI visit coincides with Princess Sirindhorn’s travel to Indiana University Bloomington, where she is to receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters on Dec. 18, 2010.
Princess Sirindhorn earned a Ph.D. in Educational Development from Thailand’s Srinakharinwirot University and received her B.A. and M.A. degrees from Chulalongkorn University, which has had an active exchange relationship with Indiana University since the 1960s.
Princess Sirindhorn “virtually” visited IUPUI in March 2008 via videoconference between IUPUI and Chulalongkorn for the Thai university’s dedication of a new student center with international videoconferencing capabilities.
In addition to her honorary degree from Indiana University, Princess Sirindhorn has received over 15 honorary degrees from Thailand and six honorary degrees from universities in India, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom. She was awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Public Service, often referred to as the “Asian Nobel Prize,” in 1991. In 2004 she received the Indira Gandhi Prize for Peace, Disarmament, and Development in India. She was named UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador in 2005.
