Dr. Maszlee Malik is IIUM’s seventh President

By Najmi Mamat

GOMBAK, 6 September 2018: Despite criticism by some parties on the appointment of Minister of Education, Dr. Maszlee Malik as the seventh IIUM President, the university welcomed him on board in his new position.

Giving credit towards his experience as the former lecturer, Dr. Maszlee is believed to be an ideal choice as he has wide experience, having led the IIUM’s Academic Staff Association in catering for the welfare of lecturers, according to the university’s Office of Corporate Communication (OCCM) in its statement yesterday (5 September).

“The university is very fortunate to receive the Minister of Education as part of the administrator as its structure is different from other universities in Malaysia.

“As Dr. Maszlee was once the lecturer here, it is believed that his leadership would enable him to be in a position to understand IIUM as the international university,” it added.

His appointment to the post for three years, replacing Tan Sri Dr. Rais Yatim, has been consented by Sultan Ahmad Shah of Pahang who is the university’s Constitutional Head.

Dr. Maszlee Malik, who was a former IIUM lecturer from Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences (KIRKHS), has expressed his willingness to hold the position, despite holding the mandate as Malaysia’s Minister of Education.

“He would not be receiving any payment for the new appointment,”  according to the statement.

Earlier, upon his appointment, a number of responses and commentaries were cited, particularly in social media, after congratulatory remarks published by the Academic Staff Association (ASA) in its official Facebook page, were being widely spread by the IIUM community. ***

  2. Well like Mommy stated, wһen we love one another and love the world
    that Jesus died for, that?s a form of worship. After we tаke into consideration God and hearken to the sermon or in Sunday School, tһat?s a manner of worshipping because we are learning how nice God is and He likes that.
    Or once we sit aгound and inform each other what the
    best issues about God are. Y᧐u know how much you want ⅼistening
    to people say how sensible or cute you boys are? Nіcelу God likes when we sрeak collectiveⅼy about how nice he is.?
