CommUniversity: Lessons from Malaysia–the International Medical University Experience
Thursday, February 17, 20228:00 am – 10:00 am EST/GMT-5
8 AM New York l 2 PM Vienna
The CommUniversity 2022 workshop series, organized by OSUN and the Talloires Network, showcases university civic engagement approaches (frameworks, strategies, methods, and practices) that have been shown to produce favorable results and that represent a standard suitable for adoption or adaptation.
These presentations are meant to prepare graduate students and faculty to apply for OSUN Engaged Research Funds, which support research tied to long-term, sustainable community partnerships.
Join this important discussion with professors from the International Medical University (IMU) in Malaysia:
Suan Phaik Khoo, Dean for Community Engagement
James Koh, Head of the Division of Medicine and 2013 MacJannet Prize Winner
Professors Khoo and Koh will share lessons from IMU and its 9-year engagement with the Temuan tribe in Kampung Tekir, a small, remote village 10 miles from IMU's clinical campus. This village birthed IMU Cares, an autonomous entity within IMU overseeing more than 50 projects dedicated to promoting community engagement, community-based research and engaged scholarship.
