Walking Far and Fast

107 Walking Far and Fast

The Vice Chancellor’s message in the New Year Address this morning was clear: UTM has to go global.

Quoting African proverb, he said, “If you want to walk fast, walk alone; but if you want to walk far, walk together.”

And he further added that, in the UTM context, we must walk far and fast together.

I think it is a brilliant and bold philosophy for a young research university like UTM, which is certainly up for the next big thing (one of the top 50 universities in the world, maybe?).

But again, whether it is slow or fast, near or far, we just have to keep on walking.
