An Introductory Message by Elizabeth Lee, Executive Director,Sunway Education Group 
As we pass the mid-point of2011, I wonder in awe how thetime has passed so swiftly andthen I realise we have been soconsumed in working earnestlyfrom one milestone to anotherwhile oblivious to the clock. Themost inspiring occasion this yearwas the official formation ofSunway University. This proudnewbie continues to offer first-class home-grown degrees that are painstakingly validatedfor quality through collaboration with our partner LancasterUniversity, a Top 10 UK university.With the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes nowunder Sunway University and ably helmed by an internationalVice-Chancellor, ProfessorRobert Bignall, the pre-university, professionalaccounting programmes andAustralian twinning degreeprogrammes must now comeunder Sunway College,headed by Dr Khatijah Khalid.Indeed we have come fullcircle but this time in an effortto diversify and offer manyprogrammes all operationallyseparated into University andCollege. The result is morechoices and pathways for theprospective Sunway studentand the University is able to focus on academic excellenceincluding research and development.In case you have not noticed, our branding now takes intoaccount our new structure and highlights the owner andgoverning body of these two institutions, the Jeffrey CheahFoundation.I am happy that the links and ties to the Foundation arestronger than before, and the Foundation continues to fly itsphilanthropic banner high by providing scholarships, awardsand other charitable donations that benefit the community. Sofar RM66 million has been channelled just for scholarshipsever since the Trust Fund, the predecessor of the Foundation,was set up in 1997. The Foundation now has an administratorwho oversees it as it continues to provide more scholarshipsto help the needy and the academic achievers. We are alsoworking towards the Foundation providing scholarships forstudies at other institutions.Our graduates have also prospered. I am particularlyimpressed that Wong Shiang Yee, Adrian Ooi, Ang Ker Soonand Dr Mark Ng have all blossomed into fine individuals.Wong is now the Head of Brand and Communications at
