Tarumanagara Foundation Profile

Tarumanagara University Campus I

Tarumanagara Foundation was founded on June 18, 1959, by a small number of Chinese community leaders. They were a social and educational organization known as Sin Ming Hui or New Light Society. The responsibility for managing and developing a university fell to this group. The house in which the incarnation of the Foundation was forged was an educational institution which later evolved into Tarumanagara University.
