2. President, Nanyang Technological University Graduate Students’ Club (NTU GSC), 2011-2012

As President of NTU GSC, I was responsible for the over all management of the club looking after nearly 10,000 graduate students. The club looks after the social, academic and welfare aspects of graduate students. To this end, my teams would organize social as well as academic events. On the academic and welfare front, my team was tasked with providing ground level feedback to senior management to further improve the quality of graduate student life by looking at various aspects of graduate education as perceived by graduate students.

I proposed a university wide enterprise collaboration network for students, especially graduate students. With the support of Cisco Systems (USA) Pte Ltd. and Center for IT systems at NTU, we conducted a pilot trial of Cisco’s Webex social platform which is an enterprise level collaboration platform. The pilot trial ended in late November 2012 and received positive feedback from the users. You can read my earlier posts on this here and here.

I also initiated and lead the team managing the participation of NTU students and staff in Qualcomm Tricoder X Prize Challenge (  We  partnered with  NTU Ventures to ensure a successful and pragmatic internal execution. We had to fold this project due to unavoidable reasons.

I helped in establishing a “Grievance Redressal Forum” for graduate students where they can share their grievances so that they get reported to and investigated by appropriate authorities. This forum is administered by NTU GSC with the support and guidance of Student Affairs Office, NTU.

In order to promote the spirit of volunteerism among graduate students, I helped in securing a grant from the Lee Foundation, Singapore to establish “Outstanding Graduate Volunteer Awards”.

3. Founding- Member (2009-2010) and Secretary (2010-2011), Nanyang Technological University Graduate Students’ Club (NTU GSC) Pro-tem Committee

I worked with a team of half a dozen volunteer graduate students from Singapore, Malaysia, Iran, China and Pakistan to set up NTU Graduate Students’ Club after the university authorities decided to have one.
