The Rector of UiTM Pahang, Prof. Ts.

“We will continue to improve the partnership in order to create a mechanism, encourage a wider collaboration network, and seek opportunities that can be done together,” explained Prof Ilham
On the same occasion, the Rector of Unhas, Prof. Dr. Dwia Aries Tina Pulubuhu, MA., espressed her gratitude to the UiTM for the trust given to Unhas to establish a collaboration network in terms of education quality improvement. According to her, the collaboration is very strategic for both parties. She warmly welcomed the collaboration.
