We are writing during this time of great uncertainty to express our concern and support for you and your families. As a member of the alumni community, you are top of mind for us, along with our students, faculty and staff.
We have all been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. You may know that UTM has moved fully to online and alternative learning for the remainder of the semester. We decided to take these steps based on public health recommendations and best practices and because of the health and safety of our community are of the utmost importance.
While our campus is the heart of this university, our people are its soul. This challenging situation is necessitating a temporary change to how we deliver education and conduct research and scholarship, but it will not deter us from the pursuit of our mission. We are proud of the ways we have already seen our community come together to support one another.
We encourage you to visit https://www.utm.my/covid19 for updates on the university’s response. You will also find resources and links to the latest information on preventive measures.
More than anything, we hope you will reach out to each other. The relationships you formed here are bonds that endure a lifetime. Together we will navigate this difficult time, and we are confident we will emerge a more resilient community. Wherever you are in the world today, please know that your UTM family is thinking of you.
