UUM DENIZENS REMINDED TO BE THANKFUL AS UUM CELEBRATES 32 GLORIOUS YEARS

Fast forward 32 years since its establishment, the sixth university in Malaysia has continued to grow rapidly in line with national development and has achieved many successes both at national and international arena.

Reflecting back on the history of the university, UUM began its humble beginnings at the provisional campus in Bandar Darul Aman near Jitra before moving to its permanent campus in Sintok about 30 km north of Jitra where operations officially began on 15 September 1990.

Prior to development of the UUM campus in Sintok, the 4,000 hectares of the Sintok Forest Reserve was gazetted as black area as a result of the terrorist activities by the communist Malayan Communist Party (MCP) which was engaged in southern Thailand.

When the MCP laid down their arms and ended their struggle, the Sintok valley was gazetted as the white area in December 1988 by former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, cum the Minister of Home Affairs. With that declaration, construction of the UUM Sintok Campus officially began on 7 January 1989 and construction was completed within 18 months as instructed by the Prime Minister at the time.

In conjunction with the UUM 32nd Anniversary which falls today, UUM Vice-Chancellor, Prof Dato' Seri Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak called upon the UUM campus community to be grateful for the achievements which have been accomplished by UUM since its inception.

"On this day we celebrate the founding day of UUM with a twist and the feeling of utmost gratitude as well as reliving the contributions made by UUM’s previous notable figures who had pioneered the development of this University since its early initiation.

I believe that if they can see UUM’s achievements today, I am certain they will be proud to see the vast transformation which has taken place," he said in his speech at the Yasin recital and Tahlil ceremony held in conjunction with the UUM 32nd Anniversary Celebration at the Sultan Badlishah Mosque this morning.

He added that every denizen must be highly consistent and hold fast to what has been set and continue to move forward despite whatever challenges and obstacles which come their way.

"The period of 30 years is the age of a generation. Now we are in the second generation in which the resulting product should be different from the product of the first generation and we need to carry out a major transformation of UUM, different from what was established by the previous figures," he said.

In addition to Yassin recital and Tahlil, the ceremony was later followed by the Dhuha Sholat and a religious talk by the Director of the UUM Islamic Centre, Assoc. Prof Dr Ismail Hj Ishak.
