The WAUSE aims to guarantee an ordered development of the application of satellite in global education and of favoring cooperation between organizations which are active in the fields of education and satellites. The WAUSE will not concern itself with the production of programs, but rather with the problems associated to worldwide promotion of education and training programs delivered via satellites. It will be a forum where solutions to the legal, administrative, regulatory, economic or technical problems of using satellites for education would be identified and actions taken to solve them for the benefit of members and to facilitate access to education in general.
The WAUSE has a strong affiliation with the Community of Mediterranean
Universities (CMU) which has members of over 120 prominent universities
in Europe, Mediterranean region, Africa, Arab, and in North America. GLOSAS/USA
is one of WAUSE's founding members, and Utsumi is one of its board members.
