Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh dan Salam Sejahtera.
Welcome, to the new academic year of 2020! I am proud to be a part of your exciting educational journey here in Universiti Teknologi MARA, Sarawak Branch, Mukah Campus. Whether you are a returning, first-year, or transfer student, you will find unlimited opportunities to enjoy campus life by learning, exploring, and engaging together. Cultivating our rich diversity is a hallmark of our unique “Resort Campus”. Let’s encourage one another to celebrate our differences and to foster a community free of intolerance and discrimination. I believe that the value of higher education lies in the morality and ethics of the students. Together we work to promote a campus climate that is respectful, civil, supportive, and safe. These core values allow us to provide a living and learning environment where we can all pursue our dreams and reach our highest potential. Let’s strive in this resort campus that is close to our heart and be our home.
Furthermore, I also would like to encourage all students here to be holistic. Apart from working hard in your studies, you should also be active by joining extracurricular activities. Extracurricular activities are activities that occur outside the four classroom walls, away from your regular curriculum. Joining extracurricular activities can provide you with a productive break from your study, train you with better time management, widen your social circle and provide an added advantage to your resume. Not only that, participating in extracurricular activities can build your confidence and leadership skills. Although it is the focus of this institution to contribute towards producing many intellects and academician, but concomitantly at the end of the day, we would like to produce graduates and citizens who will be able to contribute to the development of positive values, knowledgeable with civic and political situations, democratic participation and societal norms. It is expected that our graduates will have a strong impact on socio-economic of our state and this country as well as to be become as an aspired leader one day, InsyaAllah. Hence, in order to achieve the noble goals, I would like to encourage students of UiTM Mukah to be proactive in making impressive and consistent achievements within our campus or outside of the campus and be enthusiastic with the learning process in managing events, activities, leadership elements and interpersonal as well as intrapersonal skills.
As this campus is strategically located in the heart of education hub, I believe it will become a wonderful place to develop together. I look forward to the rich and rewarding semester and years ahead and wish that we will work together as a team sincerely in order to lift UiTM to a higher rank. I strongly believe that UiTM Mukah will play a significant role in transforming our country and region in the coming years by having enthusiastic and prolific academic and non-academic staff to drive this institution forward and to be recognised globally.
Apart from preparing our graduates to be outstanding and excellent academically, UiTM Mukah is also committed in giving our full support to any events carried out outside or inside the campus. UiTM Mukah will always work as a team player with any agencies and organisations to make any planned programmes as a successful collaboration. As Mukah is well known as the multi-racial and multi-religion division, therefore, UiTM Mukah will work together with the community to contribute to the society. Academicians of UiTM Mukah are willing to help in building the society by sharing their knowledge and their expertise to the community. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) pledge, we can contribute towards the development of the local community by giving training, consultation and leadership guidance with the support of the outstanding academicians in UiTM Mukah. UiTM Mukah will dedicate our effort to contribute to the society and nation building. As my final word, I hope that all of us, be it the academic staffs, administrative staffs as well as our beloved students, will strive to achieve global excellence while being aware of our responsibility towards ourselves, family, society and our nation.
