        This article is derived from research entitled “Developing Activities and Learning Manuals Based on the Principle of Wise Leadership to Build KPI DNA Values among Students of King Prajadhipok’s Institute”. This article has two objectives: to analyze the values and KPI DNA identities desired of students at King Prajadhipok’s Institute, and to develop learning activities to instill those values and KPI DNA identities. The results of the study are as follow. 1) Students of King Prajadhipok’s institute should uphold shared values which are a shared identity among the students. The shared identity consists of: “Knowledge-K”—the value that relates to the use of knowledge, information and facts for everyday decision-making; “Public mind-P”—the value that relates to public consciousness and the determination to work for the overall society; and “Integrity-I”, the value that strengthens the will-power to only act with virtuousness. 2) To encourage the students to uphold these values, a set of learning activities must be designed to fit the character of students, who are mature, experienced, and reliable. Those activities are “the Perspective”, “the Idol”, and “the Reflection Link”. The activities aim to promote the positive character of all students and broaden their worldview as well as perspective. The activities will help students to review and reflect on themselves to their classmates to commit themselves to the public interest.
