Dagon University

   Established in the mid-1990s, after the State Law and Order Restoration Council seized power, Dagon University, located in the new town of East Dagon Township within the city limits of Rangoon (Yangon), is a major new institution of higher education with an extensive campus and projected enrollment of 60,000. It is an example of the military regime's establishment of colleges and universities far from the city center to prevent students from freely associating with townspeople and becoming involved in political activism, as they did in 1988.
