A Malaysian Family Education and Research Centre will soon be established with the appointment of Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) in Tanjung Malim as the responsible institution.
Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that UPSI was selected following its status as the nation’s best education university.
“It will be a research and knowledge hub on Malaysian Family.
“Its establishment will also enable the practice of Malaysian Family enrichment values,” he stated during the officiating ceremony of Keluarga Malaysia@IPT at Dewan Tunku Canselor UPSI yesterday.
Present were Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad and Minister of Higher Education, Datuk Sri Dr. Noraini Ahmad.
The programme focuses on instilling Malaysian Family values among students.
The ceremony was attended by about 2,500 guests including 1,500 student representatives from 21 higher education institutes.
According to the Prime Minister, he hoped that the institution would be a hub to spread knowledge related to the Malaysian Family to the community.
He added that the hub will also play the role of promoting Malaysian Family principles.
