University of Technology Sarawak (UTS) staff and students have been told to contribute to the community, especially the less fortunate group.

UTS vice-chancellor Professor Datuk Dr Khairuddin Abdul Hamid said it was important for them to give back to society, especially during festive periods.

“We must not forget those who are less fortunate.

“I urge our staff and students to organise more activities within the community, particularly for those in need, such as residents of orphanages and elderly care homes.

“We should instil this core value of giving back among our students,” he said at the UTS Festival Celebration.

The event was held in conjunction with the four festive occasions namely Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Hari Gawai and Hari Raya Aidiladha.

Prof Khairuddin emphasised that the celebration demonstrated how Sarawak, with its diverse population, had successfully maintained unity.

“As an educational institution, it is our responsibility to uphold, preserve and strengthen this unity passed down by our elders.

“We must not take it for granted,” he said.
