Since its foundation in 1962, the Asian Social Institute (ASI) with a vision for forming and training social-science based leaders who will work for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation has seen to it that it keeps in touch with its graduates who are now coming from countries of Southeast Asia (Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, East Timor), South Asia (India, Sri-Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh), East Asia (Japan, South Korea, Hongkong, Singapore, Taiwan and China) as well as some countries of Asia-Pacific (Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Samoa), the Americas (U.S., Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Guatemala), Europe (Ireland, Germany, Austria, Belgium), Africa (Zambia, Tanzania) and Australia.

The follow up of ASI Graduates has been through mails and e-mails, through visits to the ASI graduates by faculty and staff and faculty who have been able to dovetail their international meetings with a follow-up of ASI graduates.

In 2002, the year of ASI’s Ruby Anniversary, ASI organized an international meeting of ASI graduates in Manila. It was in this meeting that a formal organization of graduates has been set up. In this meeting a vision-mission-goal(s) (VMGs) was formulated.
