TUESDAY, 07 JANUARY – Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) Chairman of the Board of Directors (LPU), Tun Dato’ Seri Zaki bin Tun Azmi today advised UMS staff to continue in their efforts to bring the university to a higher level.
According to him, negative cultures like procrastination should not exist among educators and university administrators.
“Try to asses if we can put UMS better than other local universities before we compete with international universities,” he said.
In addition, he also suggested that each UMS academician must produce articles according to their respective disciplines to contribute to educational excellence in the country.
“If each academician could write at least an article a year, it would uplift UMS in the national and international levels,” he added.
He also advised UMS staff to change the old work culture to a fast moving and efficient work culture by placing clearer goals so that the vision and mission of the university can be achieved.
He was speaking at a meeting with academic staff of UMS at the Auditorium of UMS Postgraduate Studies Centre. – ZMD (FL)
