UM Academic & International Website
As a Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic & International) of the University of Malaya, I am committed and humbled to be among the very few women leading the premier university in the country. As a comprehensive research intensive university, UM will continue to be a leader and trendsetter in research, academic advancement and innovation. It has to be both egalitarian and elitist, leading and shaping the nation’s future and enriching.
The digital world has transforms the way we deliver academic programs. It brings both immense opportunities. Leveraging on the digital capability, we are committed to provide a conducive learning environment that promotes diverse disciplinary knowledge and facilitating students with wide choice of personalized learning styles so that we are able to nurture global citizens that have the necessary 21st century skills and knowledge to address global challenges.
With regards to internationalisation, I believe, the support of global thought leadership and knowledge exchange is extremely important and under my stewardship I will continue to support the whole university community to strive to connect and establish even stronger networks; moving beyond bilateral agreements and student exchanges to joint programs and academic exchanges.
I hope you will find the website useful as we continue share with you exciting news in our initiatives to promote excellence in HE as well as celebrate our success and endeavour with our valued partners.
