Universiti Malaya Community Engagement Centre
Universiti Malaya believes that universities are more than just institutions of higher learning. They have a responsibility to improve the quality of life and reduce disparities in the communities they serve. UMCares, or the Universiti Malaya Community Engagement Centre, was established to fulfill this responsibility.
UMCares works closely with the community through community engagement projects and by involving community members in their initiatives. This allows UMCares to strategically target different demographic groups within the community to bring about positive change.
UMCares is strategically positioned to link important factors and resources to produce impactful social change. The center has links within the university to academic professionals, students, volunteers, grants and funds, as well as links outside the university to community members in need, key stakeholders, experts, and government bodies. By acting as a bridge between these resources, UMCares can optimize benefits to the community.
In essence, UMCares is a dedicated branch of Universiti Malaya that is committed to benefiting the community through strategic and well-implemented projects.
