Strengthening the Bond Between TAS and AIT
The strength of the relationship between our Taipei American School and the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) has brought great benefits to our community and has been foundational in ensuring that we can provide students the highest quality American-style education. Our two organizations share much common ground as we both support American citizens and cultures abroad.
In recognition of this enduring relationship, the TAS Board of Directors has the great pleasure to announce that we have created a new seat on the Board that will safeguard this important link between AIT and TAS as we move forward together. This seat – unlike either the existing elected or appointed seats – will be designated specifically for a representative from AIT, who is nominated by the AIT Director, appointed by the TAS Board, and he or she will serve on the Board for the length of their tour in Taipei.
We look forward to continuing to work hand-in-hand with AIT in the years ahead to help us pursue our mission to provide a broad American-based education with a global perspective that develops students of character who are committed to making the world a better place.
