The fight on COVID-19 pandemic is not yet over. We need to continue to be vigilant and be socially responsible as we embrace the New Normal. Therefore, while the University has put in place the various Safety Guidelines and SOPs as per the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Higher Education advisories, it is important that each and every one of us do our part to stay safe and keep the people around us safe; be it on campus or when you are in public spaces.

Please familiarise yourself with the IMU Group’s Safety Guidelines for the New Normal.

In the current challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic where hardships, uncertainty and fear abound, community is more important than ever – both within the University as well as in the broader community. All of us rely on those around us for support, guidance, information and empathy and also vice versa. Community engagement in the present situation serves to highlight the unique challenges that communities face during difficult times such as this and by working together, engaged communities can play a meaningful role to carry out activities that can affect and benefit them.

As the COVID-19 continues to spread in an unpredictable manner throughout the world, Malaysia is also not spared. Even though we have been able to flatten the curve and bring the COVID-19 under control, we as a nation would need everyone to still comply to the advisories and guidelines. The public has been urged to now play a role as frontliners to curb the spread of COVID-19. In this context, community engagement serves to address and prevent health and other social inequities which is standing out more prominently during the pandemic.

This guide aims to support IMU teams involved in community engagement work as well as those who continue to engage communities in various ways. It provides general guidance on community engagement during this COVID-19 pandemic situation and in the post-MCO period in the months ahead, including how to continue to support communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its ramifications.
