Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in collaboration with Asia Technological University Network (ATU-Net) will be hosting its signature programme, the 12th UTM University Presidents Forum 2022 (UTM-UPF2022) which is scheduled at UTM Kuala Lumpur campus from 1 – 3 November 2022.
Bearing the theme “Reshaping Ideas and Practices in International Higher Education: Towards Sustainable Development for the World and Humanity”, UTM-UPF2022 aims to explore and share fresh ideas and best practices to facilitate the reshaping of international higher education in Asia and beyond, towards sustainable development as well as crafting innovative solutions foreseeing challenges affecting the future world and humanity.
The first UPF in 2009 marked the continuity of the programme which was then held annually until 2017. In 2019, UTM hosted a gathering of over 2,000 participants at the Asia-Pacific Association for International Education (APAIE) Conference and Exhibition (APAIE2019) in Kuala Lumpur, whereby the UTM-UPF skipped that particular year before conquering the virtual platforms throughout the pandemic for the tenth and eleventh series.
The key highlight of the UTM-UPF2022 is the congregation of university leaders from all over the world to dissect and deliberate on the roles and responsibilities of higher education in nation-building from a wide range of standpoints in the Keynote Addresses and Panel Discussions covering three sub-themes. It will also showcase the Ambassador Global Lecture (AGL), and Networking Session. The UTM-UPF2022 shall resume as a face-to-face event encouraging a more intimate and meaningful discussion among university leaders and respective participants.
