In November 2016, representatives of the Campaigns and Supporter Engagement Office embarked on a high-profile trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to visit the University of Reading's brand new Malaysia campus and to meet Malaysian alumni and supporters of the University. After a hugely successful dinner and drinks reception at the residency of the British High Commissioner, Vicki Treadell, a committee for a new Alumni Association in Malaysia was established to promote and support the professional and social lives of the alumni of the University of Reading's two campuses.
Although still in its infancy, the University of Reading Malaysia Alumni Association promises to deliver a wide ranging programme of exciting activities to strengthen the University's profile in Malaysia and to engender a friendly community for Reading's alumni and supporters. The Association is looking forward to holding a High Tea in conjunction with the Aidil Fitri Celebration, an Open Day at the University of Reading Malaysia Campus and a Charity Dinner event at Kuala Lumpur.
The University of Reading Malaysia Alumni Association is currently active on Facebook, and will update its feeds regularly to keep Malaysian alumni and supporters up to date on its activities.
