PREAMBLE

The Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education), or the MEB (HE), laid out ten shifts to spur continued excellence in Malaysia’s higher education. Recognising the importance of autonomy in facilitating and accelerating the transformation of Malaysia’s public universities, the MEB (HE) included Shift #6: Empowered Governance, which aims to empower universities with greater decision-making rights, autonomy, together with greater accountability. With the flexibility to make their own decisions, universities will be able to implement agile management of resources and create efficient, responsive, and innovative organisations.

Given that universities may have different starting points, the Ministry of Higher Education is collaborating with universities to launch the “University Transformation Programme” (UniTP) to assist public universities in creating and implementing their own tailored transformation plans. To guide universities through this process, the UniTP is identifying and codifying best practices in a series of books with practical guidance for universities as they embark on their own transformation programmes.

To realise the vision of Shift #6, all members of the university community will be asked to take on roles with increased autonomy, responsibility and accountability. University Boards in particular will be empowered with the necessary tools and rights to support their universities through this transformation and sustain a positive trajectory for Malaysia’s educational landscape.

As leaders of their universities, Boards will be entrusted on behalf of the Ministry and the Malaysian public to oversee their institutions through three primary roles:

  • Nominate, oversee, and support the Vice-Chancellor: Review the Vice-Chancellor’s performance, support their work towards institutional goals, and make recommendations to the Ministry regarding extensions or terminations of their tenure;
