The Largest Ever - VU Graduation 2016

“Knowledge is power. It is also the fuel for the survival of mankind.” These were powerful words from Dr Elizabeth Lee, Senior Executive Director, Sunway University and Sunway Education Group in her Occasional Speech delivered at Victoria University’s 2016 Malaysia Graduation. It was also a speech given to acknowledge the Honorary Doctorate conferred by the University in recognition of her contributions to Education.

Dr Lee urged the graduands to question themselves: “Who do you want to be? What inspired you?” Dr Lee’s foray into Education was deliberate, the result of her love for teaching and for knowledge. She wanted to help change the world, and to be able to initiate change she went into education. University days were the most memorable; they were when “we figured out who we were”. However, learning does not stop with obtaining that degree. “You carry the university with you; you now have to be your own instructor.”
