Making a Difference Through University Social Responsibility
In 2013, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) embarked on a new approach for its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
Having been established more than two decades, and with numerous accolades for academic excellence,
the University wanted local communities in the vicinity of its campus in Bandar Seri Iskandar to grow and prosper.
The new CSR plan would shift the focus from being purely philanthropic and charity-based to those that
emphasise more on capacity building for empowerment. A catchphrase often repeated to encapsulate this
new thinking was: Instead of giving fish, teach the communities how to fish.
Three Key Areas Were Identified
A Caring University in Technology Education, Creativity and Innovation of the Societies
Improved Socioeconomic Conditions Based Upon Principles of Justice, Prudence, Stewardship, Collaboration and Diversity
Translation of Technologies to Address Sustainability Gaps in Communities
Community Engagement Project
