Persatuan Alumni Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia

Persatuan Alumni Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia, The Alumni Relations Division was established as a university’s agency in 2005. It aims at becoming a reputable centre for alumni relations. The Division strives to keep the alumni connected to the University through various activities. The Division also aims to promote IIUM to the entire Muslim world through the alumni.

The History

The Alumni Relations Section (ARS) was established in 1999 as a university’s agency under the purview of Admissions and Records Division, focusing on alumni relations and activities. However, the Unit evolved to become an agency of the university in 2005 which covered not only alumni matters, but also IIUM student career services. In October 2015, after a restructuring of responsibilities, it is renamed as the Alumni and Global Networking Division where it no longer deals with career services. In December 2017, the Division was renamed Alumni Relations Division following the change in the University’s organizational structure.

The Division is the liaison between the university and its graduates. Apart from obtaining input from the alumni on various matters, the Division also promotes the achievements of former graduates and keep them abreast of developments at the university.
To date, IIUM has produced more than 85,000 alumni who serve as agents of change to the world, spreading the IIUM mission nationally and internationally. The majority of them serve both public and private sectors worldwide and provide significant impact on their communities and countries. The IIUM international alumni, via its Alumni Chapters, have been established in 30 countries, such as Thailand, Indonesia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, the Republic of Maldives, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Oman, China, Bangladesh, Gambia, Republic of Guinea, Sri Lanka and Turkey. As for the local IIUM alumni chapters, they exist in Sabah, Sarawak, Johor, Kelantan and Kedah. There were also 2 interest-based Chapters established in 2015, i.e. the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) Alumni Chapter and Persatuan Seni Silat Cekak Malaysia (PSSCM) Alumni Chapter.
Among the main purposes of establishing alumni chapters are to enable the alumni to conduct activities for themselves as well as for the development of the university. The chapters could also assist in promoting IIUM to the world by becoming the referral point for potential IIUM students.
