The committee that was set up to review the National University of Singapore’s disciplinary and support frameworks says it expects to come up with recommendations by the middle of this month.
Professor Chan Heng Chee, who is Ambassador-at-Large with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a member of the Yale-NUS governing board, is a new member of the committee. Other members of the committee include Singapore Management University president Lily Kong and NUS president Tan Eng Chye.
The committee will undertake a comprehensive review of the disciplinary framework and its application, the support system for victims and the NUS’ approach to safety on our campuses.
Madam Kay Kuok, a member of the NUS board of trustees and chairman of the committee, said, “The committee understands the importance and urgency of our work, but we also need to ensure we conduct a proper, thorough, consultative review that must be robust and sustainable for the long term, establishing a new system that the entire NUS community can stand behind.”
