NEWLY APPOINTED KEY OFFICE BEARERS READY TO HELP UNIVERSITY REALISE SET AGENDA
UUM ONLINE: The newly appointed key office bearers are set to take the immense responsibility of continuing the efforts made by former key office bearers who will step down as Dean and Director from 1 July.
Prof. Dr. Hassan Abu Bakr will succeed the Dean of Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB), Prof. Dr. Shahizan Hassan, while Dr. Shahrina Othman will succeed the Director of the Centre for University-Industry Collaboration (CUIC), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Marlin Marissa Malek.
The presentation of the appointment letters was officiated by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Dr. Ahmad Bashawir Abdul Ghani at the Visitors’ Lounge this morning.
According to the Vice-Chancellor, the two newly appointed key office bearers have had extensive experience leading OYAGSB and CUIC.
According to him, there would certainly be a lot of knowledge passed down from the Dean of OYAGSB and the Director of CUIC to Prof. Dr. Hassan and Dr. Shahrina to continue the set agenda of the respective centres of authority.
"It is my fervent hope that Dr. Marlin can continue to dedicate her expertise and service to UUM even though physically she will no longer be at this university but in spirit she will always be here.
He further reiterated that, both Prof. Dr. Shahizan and Dr. Marlin had rendered many sacrifices since serving UUM over 20 years ago beginning as tutors to their final positions as the Dean of OYAGSB and Director of CUIC.
The Vice-Chancellor also expressed his hope that the newly appointed key office bearers taking over the position will be able to take on the challenge with the capabilities that they both possess.
"OYAGSB has been developed to what it is today due to the many sacrifices made by the previous Deans and may OYAGSB be pillar to all business management studies at UUM.
"Likewise, CUIC is expected to continue its partnership with the industry as it is very important not only for the placement of student trainees but also the increase in marketability of UUM graduates," he said.
