Welcome Message from the Director

Aree Jampaklay

We will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of IPSR in 2021. IPSR has been a valuable asset to Mahidol University. This did not happen by chance but due to the forward-looking strategic plans and efforts of our former leadership and all our staff. IPSR is well-positioned today due to each one of our faculty, researchers, and supporting staff's hard-working and dedicated minds. We will maintain excellence in research and graduate education to help the university compete, prosper, and achieve national goals in the global community of the 21st century. 

Our fundamental mission is to conduct high-impact population and social research and to convey key findings to society. We strive for excellent publications while emphasizing collaboration, equal partnership, career development, and social engagement. We are committed to promoting flexible education to produce globally competent graduates. 

We will work together to improve management, productivity, and cost-efficiency in both administration and academics. IPSR aims to be a widely known academic institute, both in Thailand and internationally, on which the global society can rely. The institute also hopes to be a credible and dependable friend committed to contributing and giving to others. 

Let us work together to preserve our place where the best minds want to work, think, educate, create new ideas, and commit to delivering better outcomes. IPSR welcomes everyone!!!
