On Monday 26th of May, UiTM announced that Datin Vivy Yusof has been appointed as a board member for three years.

THE Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Entrepreneurship Alumni has described the appointment of e-commerce entrepreneur Vivy Yusof to the varsity’s board of directors as a rejection of the credibility of more than 800,000 former students.

Representative Ahmad Muzakkir Hamid said the group “deeply regrets” the appointment, adding that UiTM, which is more than 60 years old, has produced “experienced and outstanding” figures in various fields.

“This is about UiTM’s pride. Vivy is not an alumna, so she won’t truly understand the university’s policies.

“We are not asking for much, just that board members are picked from among the alumni,” 

Muzakkir, who was a finalist in the Ikon Usahawan UiTM 2015 programme, said Vivy’s success as creative chief officer of FashionValet and founder of The dUCk Group cannot be questioned, but it is best for the university’s board to comprise former students.

Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Entrepreneurship Alumni group will send a memorandum to Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik soon, requesting that one of their own be appointed to the board.
