During his presentation, he explained the difficulties involved in terms of managing a university. However, it takes wisdom and the need to be smart to know how to manage it.

According to him, among the big challenges of managing a university is when it is confronted with the ever worsening financial constraints.

"One of the reasons for the decline in the universities’ financial condition is that the government has to disallow a hike in the student tuition fees, compared to private universities that are able to survive because they charge according to the number of courses taken by students.

"By right, public universities such as UUM also should be allowed to charge tuition fees and students who belong to the B-40 group should be allowed to pay less," he said.

The first of its kind, the congress took place over two days which began on 19 September. It attracted a total of 150 members of the Public University Academic Association Committee from 20 Public Universities (UA) across the nation.

Among the issues highlighted during the congress were the revision of the scheme of service for fellow lecturers, university governance particularly in relation to autonomy, leadership status of academics, and the role of the association in its efforts to uphold the nation's higher education.

The Vice-Chancellor said that the university is now making every effort to raise the fee from 10 to 15 per cent for the purpose of managing the university. Based on the present circumstances, the university is not able to govern effectively without adequate finance.

He also reiterated that, most of the major issues faced by universities involve funding, in addition to training issues that need to be considered amongst academics.

"Lecturers still need training to achieve the highest academic and management skills, so do the university administrators.

"This is also a challenge to ensure adequate and continuous training not only amongst the lecturers but also amongst administrators at the Public University (UA)," he said.

In addition, Public Universities (UA) need to establish the Department of Human Resources to ensure efficient and effective human capital that could provide the best service to the university.
