[Anindita.Dasgupta@taylors.edu.my]

As head of the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, I want to thank you for your interest in joining a dynamic and proven pathway to attaining a global education. With more than twenty years of history, the ADP program has, for decades, been nurturing talented young people from throughout Malaysia as they embark on individual journeys toward post-graduate success. Our faculty embraces a teaching philosophy that puts students at the center of a holistic educational experience that is closely mentored and unique. Moreover, each of our departments within ADP is linked to a wide range of universities and colleges: primarily in the United States, but also in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Much like students today, the American Degree Transfer Program is “going global,” and I am honored to have the opportunity to steward ADP at this exciting time in its development.
