KUALA TERENGGANU: Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA) here has become the first public university in Malaysia to offer the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Volunteer Student Cadet Corps course.
MACC Chief Commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki (pic) said the proposal to offer MACC cadet credit courses at institutions of higher learning was a bold idea submitted by UniSZA to the MACC.
“This completes the anti-corruption initiative at the tertiary level. Previously, there was a volunteer club for students, namely the Anti-Corruption Student Force, which mobilised anti-corruption education activities on campus.
“And now we have now a uniformed club that offers credit hours to complement the students' graduation requirements, and UniSZA is the first university in Malaysia to offer this course,” he said in a statement on Friday (Dec 3).
The establishment of the corps is one of the areas of cooperation in the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed by UniSZA and the MACC here on Thursday (Dec 2).
“Students who successfully complete their sessions up to semester four will be Certified Youth Integrity Officers and this is also an added value for them in the job market later,” he said. – Bernama
