USM SCENARIO PLANNING FOR COVID-19
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullah and Greetings.
May all be in peace. We are in an environment beyond ordinary, and definitely unexpected. In addition to taking a realistic approach, USM is optimistic that we will be able to deal with it and persevere. This phase requires us to make the necessary changes and adapt or we will not be able to keep up. It forces USM to change, and forces its citizens, scholars and students, to also to be adaptive to these upcoming changes.
For the first time ever, we had an open discussion on how we should adapt and how our future scenarios should be, reaching as much as 73,000 people and viewed by over 43,000 concerned parties, of which I’m assuming, consisting of parents as well. I’m sharing the outcomes, complimenting many others that we have announced earlier:

USM PROJECT OVERCOME #WEWILLNAILTHIS
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullah/Salam sejahtera all. I hope you are well.
This message is to inform that – based on excellent feedback from our scenario planning post (March 19th) – USM will continue to implement our limited access/online teaching, learning, and assessment policy for a period of 24 weeks (until Sunday September 6th 2020). All changes in existing processes and introduction of new standard operating procedures will be centred on business continuity – we aim to continue and complete Semester 2 of the Academic Year 2020.
We are of the opinion that it will take at least 4 to 6 months for Covid-19 to be contained. In addition, our experts are with the opinion that, should students return to USM, we would not be able to effectively safeguard against the risk of exposure for all 14,000+ students in their respective Desasiswa for a number of reasons, including the use of communal toilets and eateries.
As mentioned earlier, ALL undergraduate online teaching and learning will recommence April 5th (Kubang Krian), and April 6th (all other campuses). Our IT team has improved our online readiness (see below) and CDAE has been tasked with categorising online approaches based on bandwidth requirements – we shall aim for the lightest-bandwidth solution(s).
In addition, ALL postgraduate supervision, and assessment will recommence Wednesday April 1st 2020. ALL postgraduate taught courses will recommence April 5th (Kubang Krian) and April 6th (all other campuses).
