WOU’s Penang Regional Centre comes out tops again

Wawasan Open University hosted an award ceremony at the main campus today to recognise the hard work put in by its regional centres and support centres in reaching out to prospective students.

The Penang Regional Centre (PGRC) was named the most efficient centre for the second semester running, registering the best student-to-staff throughput performance for January 2014 intake. Vice Chancellor Prof Dato’ Dr Ho Sinn Chye presented the ‘Most Efficient Regional Centre’ award to PGRC marketing and admissions senior executive Rina Julian Nazrin Julian.

Meanwhile Subang Regional Support Centre (SBGRSC) grabbed two accolades, the ‘Best New Enrolment Performance’ and ‘Best Revenue Performance’ awards, and the Klang Regional Support Centre (KLGRSC) won in the ‘Best Re-enrolment Performance’ category. The respective heads, Mohd Shuib Md Jadi of SBGRSC and Angie Ng Ai Chen of KLGRSC, were on hand to receive the awards.

Regional Operations & MARCOM Director KH Chong highlighted that there were winners in four out of five categories this semester despite tough challenges confronted by all RCs in new student enrolment. There was no winner for ‘Highest in Total Enrolment Performance’– won by Ipoh Regional Centre for July 2013 intake. All awards were based on actual achievement against the targets set.

Deputy Vice Chancellor (Operations) Dr Seah Soo Aun spoke on WOU achievements in 2013, remarking that total student enrolment and new student enrolment had increased compared to the previous year. He commended the regional centres and called on them to be a “working horse” and to further increase WOU’s revenue in 2014 while reducing expenses.

In his closing remarks, he extended his appreciation to all operational units for their tremendous support and achievements in 2013, and exhorted all to look forward to an excellent Year of the Horse!
