Main Hall – Multimedia University’s President Professor Dr. Zaharin Yusoff will leave the university by the end of December, Vice President Dr. Wong Eng Kiong said during the dialogue session on November 11, 2010.
Dr. Wong told the crowd, “Someone new will be appointed in January next year.”
The Vice President revealed the news when Epsilon student Siraj Kumar initially requested an open dialogue session with the President himself to discuss the policies that were recently introduced.
“Perhaps you should wait until the new president comes into office,” Dr. Wong responded to the request.
Students later asked to meet the members of the Management Committee instead. The meeting is tentatively scheduled on November 30, 2010 for Cyberjaya campus and December 14, 2010 for Melaka campus. Ten students are expected to represent the students’ voice and participate in the meeting.
Prof. Zaharin Yusoff was appointed President on January 2, 2008 and is the second President of MMU after YBhg. Professor Datuk Dr. Ghauth Jasmon.
