Congrats to Dr Jegathesan for this appointment. I think its a first time a Malaysian of Indian descent been appointed to this position. Maybe because we have more IPTAs nowadays compared to 10 years ago. Won’t look nice if all are from one community ๐Ÿ™‚ ย BTW, USM has two pr0 chancellors. The other one is Tan Sri Razali Ismail. Can check their website under top management. I hope its not some sort of quota thing.


Olympic Council of Malaysia deputy president and Asiaโ€™s fastest man in the 1960s, Tan Sri Dr M. Jegathesan, will be proclaimed pro-chancellor of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) at the universityโ€™s 43rd convocation tomorrow.

He replaces strategic and financial consultant Tan Sri Dr Lin See Yan, a former deputy governor of Bank Negara Malaysia and former chairman/president and CEO of the Pacific Bank Group.
