Keeping Our Campus People and Environment Friendly

Having a modern and conducive campus is important. Maintaining a low carbon footprint for our campus ensures its long-term sustainability. Two buildings – Performing Arts Theatre and Block C – built under Phase 2 of the SIM Campus Development Masterplan were awarded the Green Mark Gold Plus by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA). We were also given a 92% rating for BCA’s Good Construction Practice along with the Public Utilities Board’s Water Efficient Building certificate.

Works commenced for the construction of the student mall canopy at Block C. We also began the construction of the covered linkway connecting the different blocks, the bus-stop and the new overhead bridge to be built by the Land Transport Authority together with the widening of Clementi Road by 2017. All these improvements mean that students and staff will be able to enjoy greater connectivity, convenience and comfort.

Relying on mobile and digital devices to access information, collaborate with peers, and engage in interactive learning is a way of life today. To meet this growth in internet usage, we enhanced our campus wi-fi infrastructure to provide better coverage and signal strength especially in areas with high-user density.
Empowering People to Excel

From curriculum development to engaging learners and supporting holistic education, we rely on the skills and dedication of our faculty and staff.

In 2015, we had a total staff strength of almost 1,000 employees, a growth of 4.6% over the previous year. Consistent with our belief in helping people achieve their potential, we invested $1.45 million in their training. The majority of our staff achieved the 40-hour training and development national target. Staff attended both public and customised courses to improve their technical competencies and personal effectiveness.

Giving Back to the Community

Helping People Achieve Their Dreams
SIM provides scholarships for aspiring individuals who wish to further their potential through continual learning. Two scholarships, the SIM-Richard K M Eu scholarship and SIM-You Poh Seng scholarship valued at $100,000 each, provide bond-free financial aid for SIM graduates to pursue postgraduate studies in selected fields. Scholarships at undergraduate levels are also provided for UniSIM and SIM GE students.

This year, the SIM-Richard K M Eu scholarship was awarded to a UB psychology graduate, who will pursue his PhD in neuroscience at University College London. In addition, 27 UniSIM and SIM GE scholarships with a total value of close to $400,000 were given out.

Making a Difference Through Social Good
At the heart of our social mission is the spirit of giving. Both school and student-led initiatives are encouraged as we play our part as responsible social citizens.

One such social project we continued to support is our sponsorship of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra President's Young Performers Concert for the 15th year. The prestigious annual concert provides a platform for young Singaporeans to showcase their musical talents, in line with SIM's philosophy of nurturing young talent and supporting holistic development.

As part of UniSIM’s 10th year anniversary celebrations, UniSIM board members and staff raised $30,000 for the Asian Women's Welfare Association (AWWA).

Student volunteer projects included one by the SIM-UOL Student Representative Council, in conjunction with community partners, to refurbish the houses of needy families in Telok Blangah and Bukit Ho Swee. SIM–UB students also did their part by raising funds and helping to construct a study corner and conduct English lessons for villagers at a Sarawak longhouse.
