SIM is a vibrant ecosystem for learning, sharing and growing, and for reaching out to the community at large.

At the heart of the ecosystem is a dynamic community of learners, teachers and facilitators supported by up-to-date facilities and amenities, as well as our group of staff who are dedicated to delivering a meaningful experience for every member of the community.

Investing in Our People

People is the heart and the lifeblood of the SIM community. We placed great importance in supporting our people no matter what level they are at in their quest for excellence and for personal and professional growth. Last year, we invested close to $1million in staff training and equipping our people with the relevant competencies to do their jobs well. Most SIM staff achieved an average of 36 hours of training through public and customised courses to improve their technical competencies and personal effectiveness. Courses ranged from personal effectiveness to communications and leadership.

SIM’s effort in promoting workplace health was yet again recognised by the Health Promotion Board with a Certificate of Recognition in 2017. The biennial award is conferred to organisations with commendable Workplace Health Promotion programmes, and awarded to SIM from 2001 to 2003 and 2008 to 2014.

Upgrading Our Campus Facilities

To make intra-campus travelling more convenient and introduce a healthier mode of transport, we set up Mobike bicycle stations at Management House.

Renovation works at SIM Clementi campus and Namly Management House were completed for SIM IA and Platform E respectively to welcome their inaugural cohorts. We have also spruced up our facilities to make them more conducive for learning. Twenty-seven seminar rooms and 14 laboratories of Block A in our Clementi campus were upgraded. Two floors of the Management House campus were also retrofitted to create the Platform E’s co-working space which completed in August 2017.

The second canopy at Block C was also completed in March 2017 and together with the completion of a new linkway and overhead bridge in December, the different blocks and bus stops are now connected, making commuting within, to and from campus much more convenient for students.

Giving Back to the Community

Beyond academic excellence, we believe that giving is an equally important part of the learning journey to develop socially aware and compassionate individuals. We encourage our students and people to create positive changes in the community through both individual and collective contributions.

For the 17th year running, we continued our sponsorship of Singapore Symphony Orchestra’s President’s Young Performers Concert, in line with our philosophy of nurturing young talent beyond the academics and supporting holistic development.

SIM GE partnered with Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore in their charity event themed ‘Rediscover Giving’. A student team designed and decorated an SIM GE Christmas tree on-site to draw public donations in support of Causes for Animals Singapore, a non-profit dedicated to animal welfare. The outcome was a resounding success, with SIM GE raising the most proceeds among all participating institutions.

SIM GE also collaborated with the Singapore Red Cross Society to encourage SIM students to become active blood donors.

Our commitment to doing good for the community also translates into supporting our students. This year, a total of 29 scholarships were given to deserving SIM GE students, amounting to almost $400,000, a record high. SIM IA also gave out inaugural scholarships to five students valued at $125,000.
