Raising The Bar In University Management


Delegates engaged in discussions on topics related to university management and governance

Over 50 University Presidents and Deans from 15 universities across China participated in the Temasek Foundation – National University of Singapore Programme for Leadership in University Management (PLUM). This initiative is supported by Temasek Foundation through a grant of S$700,000 over two years.

Held from 18 to 22 March 2013, the five-day executive training programme aims to provide a platform for Chinese university leaders to exchange ideas and best practices in university management and governance.

Facilitated by members of the NUS senior management, participants engaged in discussions on university governance as well as topics on technology-enhanced teaching and learning, internationalisation, and entrepreneurship.

This is the second run of PLUM. The first run was completed in 2012, where 56 leaders from 17 universities discussed issues such as institutional leadership, strategic planning and faculty development.
