Each year, outstanding professors in the field of education are hosted by the National Institute of Education under the CJ Koh Professorship in Education programme. The CJ Koh Professorship has been made possible through a generous donation by the late Mr Ong Tiong Tat, executor of the late lawyer Mr Koh Choon Joo’s (CJ Koh) estate, to the Nanyang Technological University Endowment Fund.

About the CJ Koh Professorial Lecture Series
CJ Koh Professorial Lecture Series was launched by the Office of Education Research on 1 March 2011. It was conceptualised for the purpose of knowledge building and sharing with our internal, external and international stakeholders in education, who can benefit from the information shared during each CJ Koh Professorship visit. Since 2016, the Professorship and Lecture Series have since been moved under the purview of the Office of Strategic Planning and Academic Quality.
