About UMUC

University of Malaya UNESCO Club (UMUC)

The University of Malaya UNESCO Club (UMUC) is the first of its kind in universities in Malaysia. The UMUC was established as a response to the call by the National Commission of UNESCO Malaysia for the Institutions of Higher Learning (IHLs) to enhance excellence in higher education in Malaysia through the establishment of UNESCO Clubs as a method for enhancing international exposure of Malaysian university students. Due to its long standing relationships with UNESCO and its own programs and activities that are related to UNESCO and the ideals of the United Nations, University of Malaya Centre for Civilisational Dialogue (UMCCD) was given the mandate to supervise and advice the University of Malaya UNESCO Club. Recently, UNESCO Club was requested to be setup in all the public universities around Malaysia, with the University of Malaya UNESCO Club as a model.
