Capping off 30 years of NTU with commemorative dinner
To cap off NTU Singapore 30th anniversary activities, NTU held a commemorative dinner to thank and pay tribute to university leadership, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and partners who have contributed to NTU over the past 30 years.
The anniversary activities, which kicked off in September last year, included university-wide initiatives such as the launch of a digital time capsule, a public exhibition, and a limited-edition book, along with various fundraising events that have collectively raised over $1.1 million for both the OneNTU and wider community at large.
Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies Mr Heng Swee Keat, who was the Guest of Honour, attended the dinner virtually and delivered an address to guests, which included former Singapore President and former NTU Chancellor Dr Tony Tan, Health Minister Ong Ye Kung and Indonesian Minister of Home Affairs Dr Muhammad Tito Karnavian.
Also present were NTU alumni, including former Members of Parliament Madam Lee Bee Wah and Mr Yeo Guat Kwang.
They were joined by NTU Pro Chancellors, present and former Board Trustees and NTU leaders, major donors, partners, faculty, staff and student leaders.
Titled “30 years of Momentum. Pioneers Always”, NTU’s 30th anniversary’s theme centres on NTU’s rapid growth in the brief span of three decades and its vision for the future as it gathers pace to take on fresh challenges.
