The Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Industry and Community Relations) was established in 2007 to enhance the role of UPM as a Research University.
The Mission of the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Industry and Community Relations) is to assist the university to be a centre of learning and research that contributes to human progress and the discovery of knowledge through interaction with industry and community.
The role of the office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Industry and Community Relations) is to enhance and coordinate joint UPM-Industry-Community endeavours in order to strengthen the multiple functional responsibilities of teaching and learning, research and development of the university, keeping faith with our motto, “With Knowledge We Serve” and meeting the current needs of the country and contributing towards nation building.
The primary responsibilities of the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Industry and Community Relations) are to:
The comprehensive range of activities organized to meet the above-mentioned responsibilities is planned and executed by the University Community Transformation Centre (UCTC) and the Centre of Industry Relations and Network (CiRNeT), both of which are key components of the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Industry and Community Relations).
While these industry and community relations activities have been on a national basis so far, steps have already been taken to go beyond national borders and reach out to the international community in the university’s continuing efforts to go global in its university-industry-community engagement efforts.
Many efforts have been made in this direction and we are confident they will bear fruit and UPM will soon be able to globally engage industry and communities and play a modest but significant role in contributing to world peace, harmony and human well-being.
