CHAPTER 1INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background of the StudyUniversiti Teknologi MARA is known as the largest public university inMalaysia with current enrolment of 180,000 students (including part timersand allied colleges). The university also hires more than 10,000 academiciansin order to deliver its curriculum. In order to manage such this big population,the University has to appoint some academicians to uphold certainadministration positions.From the other view,
it seems like those „expert‟ are not in their 
optimising position when they have to forgone on preaching the knowledge inorder to perform this administration duties. Due to this situation, University iscurrently practice a big tutorial group consisting about 40 students andrecruiting part time lecturers in order to cater the shortages. This big group oftutorial and part time lecturers tend to compromise with the quality expectationof the University.Various system, policies and procedures were tested and reviewed, tofind tune for the best to be implemented in the University since year 2000.Online records have been tremendously applies in the most of the dailyoperations to accelerate the work process. In 2008 and 2009, a seriousdiscussion have be raised on empowering the non-academic administrators tooffice some of the administrations work which currently done by
academicians. In late 2009, „Let the Manager‟s Manage (LeTTMMe)‟ is ta
bledto the University Management perusal.In 2010, a few campuses (Segamat, Seri Iskandar, Dungun andSamarahan) were instructed to pilot-test this idea, before it will be applied to
the whole University‟s system
. This idea was collaborated with the UiTMautonomous state campus agenda.
 
1.2 Statement of the Problem
The University‟s is going bigger and the need for academicians is
getting crucial. In meantime, some academicians are doing administrative jobs, which reducing their teaching hours. This situation made the shortage ofacademicians getting worse.To encounter the problem, the University plans to empower more taskand responsibilities to non-academic administrator (in this case, AssistantRegistrars) to run the administration and daily operation. The academicianswill (still) hold a very minimum administrative position, but will focus more onacademic matters. The administrators will be empowered to uphold top
administrative positions (for example in Students‟ Affairs, Intake, Sport
Centre, Health Centre).The questions raise whether the Assistant Registrars are capable totake this responsibility or not. This study will look into the readiness andperceptions of the Assistant Registrars to deploy this empowerment initiative,as well as
to look into their perceptions on University‟s preparation on it.
