Tuanku Chancellor remarked that, this is due to the prevalent increase in various destructive conducts among the people in our society.

I also hope that UUM graduates will not only be able to hold high positions in various institutions but will turn into well-rounded individuals and able to contribute to the society.
Meanwhile, the Vice-Chancellor of UUM, Prof. Dr. Ahmad Bashawir Abdul Ghani said, he has charted a comprehensive plan to bring UUM to greater heights, but at the same time remain steadfast on the principle of humanising education.
Prof. Dr. Ahmad Bashawir stated that, UUM has made great progress towards implementing some of the measures that have been identified to facilitate the process. This includes the suggestion by YAB Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad that universities must transform and use new methods of teaching and other social activities.
"Hopefully, all graduates will not forget your Alma Mater, Universiti Utara Malaysia and continue to contribute for the development of the campus, the place where you gained your knowledge.
Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultanah Maliha binti Almarhum Tengku Ariff, the Sultanah of Kedah has also graced the ceremony.
