Teaching Anti-Corruption In University
KUANTAN: The Anti-Corruption modules for students in Higher Learning Institutions (IPT) will soon become a reality after the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) stated its readiness to collaborate with the Ministry of Higher Education.
"The module related to the prevention of corruption is taught to Sixth Form students through the General Paper, but at the IPT level either in the public universities or private institutions, they still do not have the module.
"In this regard, the Commission hopes that it can be used as a module especially for final year students who will be entering the workforce to have the graft-free mentality, to work free of corruption and champion anti-corruption," Deputy Chief Commissioner (Prevention) Mustafar Ali said in a statement.
He also added that the move is a long-term effort to curb corruption by MACC with involvement from all levels of society.
The Anti-Corruption modules, apart from the existing Anti-Corruption Secretariat in IPTs, have the potential to strengthen the effort to educate students in combating graft and corruption. It is timely that the MACC is focusing on these next generation of leaders to be agents of change in the war against corruption.
