Note of Appreciation and Farewell
This is to inform that my tenure as Vice Chancellor will end 7th November 2013. Professor Dr. Mohd Amin Jalaludin of the Medical Faculty has been appointed to replace me.
Please allow me to take this opportunity to express my great happiness and appreciation to all staff and students of UM for the great encouragement and support given to me during my 5-year tenure as VC. The last 5 years has been the most fruitful and enjoyable period of my life where I have been able to do my best for this premier institution of the nation.
Allow me also to kindly request for your forgiveness should I have wronged anyone or caused anyone to be displeased. Please take it from me that whatever has happened has been in the course of duty to develop and grow UM into one of the world’s leading academic institution.
I wish to kindly request that full, undivided support to be given to Prof. Amin, the new VC so that he could continue the development agenda of UM to become a truly world class institution.
Finally, I wish everyone good health, happiness and success.
With all Best Wishes.
