In this meeting, the rector explained the direction that he suggested and how the kulliyyah can help the university to achieve the status of a UN Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development as recognised by the United Nation University, Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability in line with Education 2030.

"What I want is to bring IIUM up to the status that is recognised by the United Nation University as a university for the future."

"In order to achieve this IIUM needs to have a huge impact on the community engagement based on knowledge sharing and transfer around the world.  For example, creating a vibrant social networking for change with the local community within the vicinity of the campus by organising various sustainable impactful activities between the university and the community," he added.

The objective of this meeting is to provide guidelines and how to get started on what has been planned so that we can move as a team through a whole-institution approach. The series of strategic visits is to provide a clear explanation on what is to be achieved collectively while acknowleging various inputs from the Kulliyyah before the strategic plan is finalised. 

He also shared the changes made that need to be aligned with the National Education Philosophy, as well as other global agenda that support education for the 21st century.
