Good evening and assala:mu `alaikum wa rahmatulla:hi wabaraka:tuh”

Indeed it’s a great pleasure to share this special event with all of you in this university college – the management, faculty, staff and students who are carrying KLIUC’s mission forward into this New Year 2009. I trust that you feel renewed and revitalized with the start of a new year.

As an academic institution KLIUC has a vision, and we have a mission and purpose, and we have incredible opportunities before us in the coming months of the year.

Today every one of us inherits this university college and all of its advantages and infrastructure which came into existence directly or indirectly due to education.

The future for higher education and academic institution in our country is bright and the history is being rewritten every day. Malaysian universities have now emerged in the international academic scene.

Recently there was a buzz of excitement among public and private higher education institutions. They were preparing themselves to compete to be named and awarded as Malaysia's first apex university.

KLIUC students, faculty and staff, too, should rise to the occasion and always be reminded of our vision.

Higher learning institutions need to spot new trends in the society, quickly respond, and plan not only to survive but to flourish and prosper. It is time to embrace all that 2009 will bring us. We need to take time to get grounded, reflect on our successes and our challenges and work together to make the future something for which we can all be proud

KLIUC’s commitment to academic and administrative excellence is evidenced by MQA accreditation of its academic programs, the MSC status, key performance indicators, quality assurance indicators, physical building and infrastructure development, and the ISO 9001 certification.

I’ve learnt that the university college has become more involved in charity and community service locally and internationally, for instance, in helping the victims of earthquake in China, landslide and floods in the country, and hostilities in Gaza.

A well-balance education should blend academic achievements and good morality. Knowledge and practice of knowledge should harmoniously integrate social standards for good behavior and character. Charity begins at home, and it makes us proud to see our students decide to sacrifice a little of what they have for the benefits of others.

The success of the university college is definitely the culmination of constructive collaboration among the faculty and staff members, administrators, and students to continuously upgrade educational quality and services. Despite the financial tsunami, we need to look ahead to the educational needs of the future.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dream.” KLIUC does have a dream for its future, and a plan to get us there. Most importantly, we should embrace the dream, make changes, adapt, innovate and be consistent.

The mother of the believers `A’isha (RAA) reported that God's messenger (SAW) was asked: ' What deeds are most liked by God?' He (SAW) answered what translated means: "The deeds liked best by God are those that are most regular, even if they are few." (Related by al-Bukhari)

Without doubt, our consistent action will determine our success in rising above the competition. Consistency brings out the best in us: the excellence that is the subject of this evening's awards.

As such, I would like to congratulate all of the faculty and staff members, and administrators, who have given the majority of their time for the students’ benefits. Your long hours and your commitment to the students and the university college, in addition to the time at work, are greatly appreciated.

I would also like to congratulate the students who have made very impressive achievements by showing an excellent performance in the examinations that surpass average passing rates to deserve the award granted by KLIUC. Your academic achievement exemplify the very best that KLIUC offers to all of the students, to society and to the nation.

”’Syabas!’ saya ucapkan; dan saya doakan anda semua akan terus berusaha untuk meningkatkan kecemerlangan akademik anda ke tahap yang lebih tinggi.’

“Dengan lafaz ‘bismilla:hirrahma:nirrahi:m’, saya merasmikan Majlis Anugerah Dekan KLIUC. Wa billa:hi taufiq wal hida:yah wassala:mu `alaikum warahmatulla:hi wabaraka:tuh”
