Vice-Chancellor of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Professor Datuk Dr. Mohd Harun Abdullah said in the administration of the university for example, the officers would continue to find the best work process so as to avoid bureaucracy.
“For that, the Steering Committee on Quality and Innovation under the Registrar Department can give their support thus instilling the culture of innovation in every staff of the university,” he said in his speech at the University Excellence Awards 2015 held at the Main Lecture Halls 2, this morning.
He further added that to ensure UMS remain competitive and stay relevant, initiatives to improve the university’s image in the international arena should be done by aiming for worldwide recognition.
In the aspect of sustainability, today’s sophisticated world requires its community to think how environmental sustainability could be preserved for future generation.
“Therefore, we must take this opportunity to put UMS in the world map with the EcoCampus concept introduced three years ago.
“I hope the three keywords described above could change minds and attitudes to become excellent.
“Innovative, Relevant and Sustainable, besides UMS motto ‘Strive to Excel’ should be the mainstay as the foundation of UMS’ excellence,” he added. – MA (fl)
