13th UTM University Presidents Forum 2023
“Innovating Solutions : Expanding Horizon”
Universiti Teknologi Malaysia will be organising its 13th UTM University Presidents Forum 2023 at UTM Johor Bahru campus from 8 to 10 August 2023. Themed, “Innovating Solutions: Expanding Horizon”, UTM-UPF2023 aims to provide common ground for best practices and disseminate cutting-edge strategies that can catalyze the transformation of global higher education outlooks. This involves championing innovative solutions geared towards proactively responding to emerging trends and effectively surmounting challenges central to the higher education sector.
The main agenda is convening global university leaders to scrutinize and introspectively examine higher education’s diverse roles and obligations in developing nations. This is viewed through various lenses showcased in the Keynote Sessions and Panel Discussions encompassing the sub-themes. This year’s iteration of UTM-UPF2023 will present a unique platform, the Presidents’ Round Table, comprising the participation of all attending university leaders.
As the secretariat, UTM International emphasized UTM-UPF2023 as a shared forum for university leaders to confront and discuss contemporary concerns in higher education and establish strategy and action plans to increase collaboration and cooperation among participating participants in universities.
