Earlier, outgoing WOU Vice Chancellor Tan Sri Emeritus Prof Gajaraj Dhanarajan and Acting Vice Chancellor Prof Wong Tat Meng delivered their informal speeches. Prof Wong lauded Tan Sri for his leadership and for taking WOU to where it is today.
Prof Dhanarajan said: “Three years is not enough to build a university, however I’d like to think we’ve achieved some considerable success. And like me, all of you should work here till you’re 70.” He suggested we find good supportive colleagues and great friends, adding “There’s never gonna be a perfect working environment; working environment is what you create!”
