posted on 2014-01-01, 00:00 authored by James Campbell
In this paper, the author discusses the reform agenda undertaken by Universiti
Sains Malaysia (USM) to contextualise higher education reform within cultural
and social theory. It is important to understand leadership in leading reform
within a broader and more holistic fashion that takes into account local
culture, politics and history. University Sains Malaysia is embarking on what is
referred to as the APEX agenda. The APEX strategy in Malaysia is an important
approach towards achieving world-class status university institutions. The Apex
Universities will be the nation’s centres of academic distinction. Ensuring and
building upon the ethical authority that APEX gives USM, the challenge of leadership in USM is to engage in the forces of globalization and modernization
while at the same time take cognizance of the characteristics and demands of
Malaysian culture as central still to the successful mission of USM.
