The Current



The Office of Industry, Community, Alumni Network was recently reinstated to comprise 3 operational centres, 2 specialised research as well as service centres and a unit focused on endowment. ICAN is a division that has been established based on earlier structures of University Industry Linkage Centre (UiLC) and Industry, Community Network (ICN), Industry, Community, Alumni and Entrepreneurship Network (ICAEN). It has been tasked with the responsibility of connecting and networking UiTM with external stakeholders namely the industry, community and the alumni fraternity in order to enhance and strengthen the university’s academic relevance and standing.

2020 sees a further expansion of the scope for ICAN’s initiatives and activities. With 3 Directors leading the existing centres and 2 heads for project-focused centres, ICAN’s aims to intensify UiTM’s engagements and position UiTM as a university for the society can be better realised. Concurrently, ICAN continues to champion United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the centres are geared to achieve sustainability through UiTM experts’ input and reciprocally learn from the industry and the community.

The Centres dubbed as Sustainable Community Development Centre(SCDC) and Centre for Health, Wellness and Human Performance are tasked with exploring initiatives that benefit the community at large. SCDC’s initiatives target the enhancement of the quality of life for the marginalized and the poor through innovative economic activities such as community based ecotourism. This initiative is set to balance conservation and human needs for a sustainable future.
While the Centre for Health, Wellness and Human Performance intends to help improve the quality of life of the people through healthy lifestyle practices and healthy living culture. In addition, it is also intensifying research and innovation to enhance sports performance for the nation.

With the realignment of its scope focused on industry, community and alumni networking and targeting sustainable development for marginalised communities and overall health and sports performance through research and innovation, ICAN is poised to deal with the local as well as global challenges. The aim is to establish synergistic relationships within an ecosystem of academic pursuits, community based innovation, scholarly achievements, relevant knowledge creation, internalization and application of new approaches.
