Menurutnya, apa yang berlaku sama ada menerima kenaikan pangkat atau tidak, semuanya atas kehendak Allah dan yang pasti ada hikmah kerana beliau percaya Allah sebaik-baik perancang.

Prof. Dr. Rosna berkata, beliau bersyukur kerana menerima watikah kenaikan pangkat yang disifatkan sebagai satu pengiktirafan kepada profesor dan ahli akademik yang menjadi satu hadiah istimewa setelah 31 tahun menabur bakti bersama UUM.

“Sebagai ahli akademik, kita tidak perlu tunggu kenaikan pangkat sebaliknya berterusan memberi khidmat bakti tanpa syarat dan yang penting bagaimana kehadiran profesor dirasai serta boleh memberi manfaat bukan sahaja kepada UUM tetapi juga kepada komuniti dan seluruh warga global,” katanya.

Tambahnya, beliau masih mempunyai 4 tahun lagi untuk bersama UUM, justeru beliau sedia untuk berbakti kepada masyarakat demi memajukan agama, bangsa dan negara.

Bagi Pengarah Institut Pembangunan Keusahawanan dan Koperasi (CEDI), Prof. Dr. Chandrakantan Subramaniam, penerimaan watikah ini juga satu pengiktirafan kepada warga akademik yang banyak menyumbang kepada pengembangan ilmu sekali gus membantu staf untuk terus cemerlang dan menjadikan UUM lebih ‘visible’.

“Untuk merealisasikan hasrat itu, kita harus fokus kepada pengajian atas talian dan menekankan aspek keusahawanan sebagai salah satu sumber kerjaya pada masa hadapan.

“Tambahan pula dalam keadaan pandemik Covid-19, kita dapat melihat banyak syarikat ditutup, pengangguran pekerjaan termasuk di kalangan mahasiswa meningkat maka kita harus memperkasakan bidang keusahawanan dalam mendepani cabaran ini,” katanya yang menerima kenaikan pangkat dari Prof. Madya ke Profesor VK7.

Mulai 1 Julai ini, dua penjawat utama baharu akan menggalas amanah tersebut dengan menerajui Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB) dan Pusat Kerjasama Universiti-Industri (CUIC).

"Sejak penubuhan OYAGSB lagi tujuannya adalah untuk menjadi sekolah perniagaan utama di Malaysia dan buat masa ini, UUM merupakan antara dua universiti di Malaysia selain Universiti Malaya yang mempunyai akreditasi Double Crown iaitu AACSB dan AMBA.

"Untuk misi seterusnya adalah untuk melengkapkan agenda Triple Crown. Apabila kita berjaya memperolehniya, OYAGSB akan bertapak sebagai sekolah perniagaan utama di Asia Tenggara menjelang 2023, diikuti pada 2025 pula membolehkan OYAGSB diiktiraf sebagai salah satu daripada Top 100 World Business Schools," katanya yang akan menggantikan Prof. Dr. Shahizan Hassan.

"Selain itu, beliau juga harus bergerak seiring dengan kemampuan sedia ada dan berusaha untuk memastikan semua staf akademik dan pentadbiran bersama-sama memahami visi OYAGSB untuk memikul tanggungjawab agar misi tersebut tercapai," katanya.

Timbalan Pengarah CUIC, Dr. Shahrina Othman berkata, beliau amat bersyukur kerana diberikan kepercayaan oleh pihak universiti untuk memegang jawatan sebagai Pengarah di CUIC.

Menurutnya, pada masa sama beliau berbesar hati untuk menyahut cabaran itu dan memikirkan langkah seterusnya untuk memajukan CUIC dalam situasi yang dilalui sekarang untuk norma seterusnya.

"Yang penting, adalah hubungan dengan industri yang harus ditingkatkan lagi dan perlu dilihat dari pelbagai aspek, justeru saya tidak sabar untuk berjumpa semula rakan industri agar pelan yang dirancang CUIC dapat dilaksanakan.

"Setiap tahun CUIC telah menetapkan hala tuju tersendiri dan saya akan pastikan ia akan diteruskan serta melakukan sedikit penambahbaikan mengikut situasi Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Pemulihan (PKPP) ekoran Covid-19," katanya yang akan menggantikan Prof. Madya Dr. Marlin Marissa Malek.

Sementara itu, Dr. Marlin berkata, Dr. Shahrina bukan seorang pengganti, sebaliknya akan meneruskan kerja yang telah dilakukan beliau sebelum ini.

Menurutnya, beliau percaya dengan kebolehan yang terdapat pada Dr. Shahrina untuk mengemudi CUIC pada masa hadapan untuk melaksanakan semua agenda yang telah dirancang.

Katanya, warga CUIC sentiasa bekerja keras, tidak mengambil sesuatu perkara dengan mudah, meletakkan harapan tinggi pada setiap pekerjaan yang dilakukan serta tidak saling bersaing sebaliknya 'menolak' diri untuk menjadi lebih baik.

UUM ONLINE: Bagi memastikan ahli keluarga di kampung halaman terhindar dari penularan wabak Covid-19, warga kampus UUM akur dengan arahan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan bersyarat (PKPB) yang tidak membenarkan rentas negeri bagi tujuan menyambut Aidilfitri.

Timbalan Dekan di Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB), Lt. Kol. (PA) Prof. Ts. Dr. Norazah Mohd Suki reda dengan ketentuan Ilahi dan terbuka menerima apa jua keputusan yang dibuat kerajaan dalam usaha memutuskan rangkaian wabak Covid-19.

Menurutnya, sambutan raya tahun ini menjadikan rakyat Malaysia lebih berdisiplin dengan mengamalkan Prosedur Operasi Standard (SOP) yang ditetapkan demi kesihatan dan keselamatan bersama.

Katanya, penularan wabak tersebut telah menghalangnya untuk pulang ke kampung halaman beraya bersama keluarga meskipun sedih tetapi dia tetap patuh dengan arahan kerajaan dan universiti.

“Sejak penularan Covid-19, banyak norma baharu yang perlu diikuti seperti sentiasa memakai pelitup muka dan menggunakan ‘hand sanitizer’, malah kini saya juga membeli kuih raya melalui online sahaja kerana rakyat di negara ini dinasihatkan untuk duduk di rumah dan kurangkan aktiviti menziarahi pada hari raya.

“Hanya raya pertama sahaja dibenarkan untuk mengunjungi keluarga terdekat, namun masih perlu amalkan penjarakkan sosial yang dicadangkan oleh kerajaan seperti mengelakkan perhimpunan beramai-ramai dan tiada sesi bersalaman dengan ahli keluarga,” katanya yang juga Pegawai Bersekutu Angkatan Pertahanan Awam Malaysia (APM).

Prof. Ts. Dr. Norazah berkata, hari raya tidak disambut sepi walaupun tidak bersama keluarga tercinta kerana teknologi kini telah menghubungan semua orang hanya di hujung jari sahaja dengan adanya aplikasi WhatsApp, Webex atau Zoom yang membolehkan setiap orang berkomunikasi.

Di kesempatan ini, beliau sekeluarga mengucapkan Salam Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir dan Batin kepada seluruh warga UUM.

Sementara itu, pelajar Sarjana Muda Komunikasi, Nurul Sahadar Che Nuh mengakui sambutan raya tahun ini agak berbeza dalam suasana norma baharu yang harus dipatuhi.

Berasal dari Kelantan, Nurul Sahadar berkata, Aidilfitri di era PKP banyak mengajarnya erti sebenar menyambut hari raya iaitu dengan lebih kesyukuran, rendah diri dan membesarkan Allah dengan harapan amalan di sepanjang Ramadan akan diterima-Nya.
