They say that success is a journey not a destination. It is about keeping up withconsistent achievement. The taste of success is particularly sweet now that we havebecome Sunway University. It is truly a privilege to share the news of this specialachievement with you, our alumni. This achievement is an acknowledgement of thequality of education offered at Sunway as well as the tireless efforts of our academicstaff, the opportunities in research and postgraduate courses. We shall continuallystrive to be a leading university in the region.Last year we also saw another milestone on our journey as we became officially ownedand operated by the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation. To Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah, his vision iscomplete as the Foundation is analogous to a “ship of dreams” that would sail a greatnumber of promising students who are sponsored an education with its ensuingopportunities and possibilities. A total of RM6.9 million was handed out from theFoundation mostly in the form of merit-based scholarships in 2010. These scholarships,given every year, are an investment with far-reaching dividends. By attracting top class students, we not onlycontinually improve as an institution but we attract the best minds that belong to the contributing citizens of thefuture. Our top scholars have indeed proven their capabilities as they have consistently achieved top marks amongtheir peers internationally year in and year out.The successes of our past students and scholars in their career and professional life are also a barometer of ourinstitution’s strengths and achievement. As such, we are always happy to hear how our alumni are doing and ourAlumni Office is there for you to continually connect with us. We welcome your visits to your alma mater whether itis to “walk down memory lane”, reconnect with your lecturers or share a personal story of success with ourstudents. Sharing between, and mentoring by seniors and juniors are an important aspect of learning for students.By doing so, we keep our students inspired and encouraged while keeping the Sunway flame burning.With that, I wish you a year of prosperity and success and I do hope 2011 will be an amazing year for all of us.Happy New Year and God bless.

A Message from the Vice-Chancellor 
Moving On Ahead...
Greetings from Sunway University and welcome to the third edition ofthe Momentum newsletter.We know that you like to keep in touch with good friends made during your studentdays and keep up to date with new developments in Sunway, so in this Januaryissue of the newsletter we are featuring the achievements of a number of oursuccessful alumni. You may well know or remember some of them from your timewith us.I am sure that you have already heard that the Minister of Higher Education recentlyinvited Sunway University College to accept full University status. You will also bepleased to know that the newly renamed Sunway University continues to grow inreputation and stature. Another notable achievement in 2010 was our rating of“Excellent” in the national SETARA audit of higher education institutions. This five-star rating places us in the leading group of public and private Malaysian universities.In October 2010, we conducted our annual graduation ceremony. Our illustriousChancellor, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Dr Jeffrey Cheah, presented the Sunway degree anddiploma certificates. Also officiating at the ceremony was the Chancellor ofLancaster University, Sir Chris Bonington, who presented Lancaster degree scrollsto those graduates who qualified for the dual Sunway-Lancaster degrees. Sir Chrisis a renowned mountain climber and professional motivational speaker. On the daybefore the graduation, he gave an inspirational presentation on his mountainclimbing career as part of our Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah Distinguished Speaker series ofpublic lectures.In last year’s issue of Momentum we mentioned that Sunway was about to embarkon an extensive building programme. I am pleased to confirm that work has startedon our new Art and Design building, which will be located near to the studenthostels, overlooking Sunway Lagoon. The campus monorail station has beendemolished to make way for a new state-of-the-art postgraduate centre, which will provide a venue for the delivery ofa new Global MBA programme, to be offered in collaboration with the Lancaster University Management School.Another innovative development has been the conversion of a section of the existing monorail track into a coveredwalkway over the Sunway Lagoon theme park. Now that this new Canopy Walk has been completed, the shops andparking facilities at the Sunway Pyramid shopping centre are just a scenic five minute stroll from the campus.We look forward to having you drop by for a visit to see all the new developments and to celebrate with us as theSunway University campus expands and evolves.With best wishes,Professor Robert Bignall
