UC Faculty Meeting at Start of Term III

The University of Cambodia (UC) hosted a faculty meeting prior to the start of Term III to keep full- and part-time faculty members informed about academic policies at the University and to seek feedback from the instructors. The meeting was held on July 10 at the UC Conference Center and aimed to strengthen communication and collaborative efforts between the University and instructors. H.E. Dr. Kao Kim Hourn, President of UC and Adviser to Samdech Techo Prime Minister Hun Sen, chaired the faculty meeting and delivered the opening remarks. Several UC Executive Team members were in attendance to deliver remarks on key University policies and initiatives.

Dr. Angus Munro, Vice President for Academics, presented on the academic policies of the University. He sought to brief new members of the part-time faculty, and reinforce the understanding of other more long-term members about the main issues to be aware of and how they should be best implemented; and he also drew attention to recent policies which have or will be introduced in order to improve the quality of education at UC, from both the students’ and their instructors’ perspectives.

Por Malis, Vice President for Operations, spoke on the operational policies at UC, and Peter Tan Keo, Vice President for Strategy, Development and International Cooperation, discussed the Five-Year UC Strategy Plan. To conclude the faculty meeting, Dr. Y Ratana, Director of the Academic Foundation Department (AFD) and Dean of Undergraduate Studies, briefed the instructors on the Minimum Nine Standards set by the Accreditation Committee of Cambodia (ACC).

After a productive and engaging meeting, members of the faculty and Executive Team went to a buffet lunch at the Tonlé Bassac Restaurant to continue their discussion on University policies and how to best proceed into the future.

The University is committed to the professional development of its instructors and to strengthening the academic course offerings and educational opportunities for UC students.
