PETALING JAYA: University alumni are called upon to share their learning experience and expertise to help develop education in the country.
Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Mary Yap Kain Ching said there were ways for the alumni to help improve the various aspects of university development including proposing brilliant ideas.
“When we say help, it does not mean financial assistance alone, but alumni who are successful in their respective fields are asked to contribute to their respective universities,” she said.
She was speaking to reporters after the pre-launch of Universiti Malaya’s (UM) Homecoming carnival in conjunction with the 111th anniversary of the establishment of the university, here, today.
UM vice-chancellor Professor Dr Mohd Amin Jalaludin said UM aims to be ranked among the top 100 in the world university rankings this year.
It is currently ranked 146th in the world university rankings and it is not easy to climb to be in the top 100, he added.
