Several months ago our Association approached the UM management to ask for all UM academic staff, regardless of rank, to be issued name cards with the gilded colour UM logo. Up until now the coloured logo has been reserved for a select few only, including deans and rectors, whereas everyone else could only have the plain blue logo printed on their cards. In effect this created an unnecessary division among the ranks of UM’s staff.
We are glad to report that the UM management has consented, and from now on all full-time academic staff at all ranks and administrative staff who are eligible for name card printing may request these coloured logos on their name cards. For environmental protection, however, we suggest you use up your current supply of name cards before requesting the new cards.
