In recognition of Uni-Y NTU's contributions to advancing the welfare of others within the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) community and beyond in 2014, Uni-Y NTU will be awarded the Nanyang Award for Humanitarian Work.

Ms Tan Hui Ping, President, Uni-Y NTU Executive Committee 2015, said that it was “an honour to receive the accolade”.

“The Nanyang Award is an affirmation of Uni-Y’s efforts to serving the community,” she said. “We will continue to serve and bring cheer to our beneficiaries while empowering youths to become community champions.”

Launched in 2005, the Nanyang Awards are given in recognition and celebration of the outstanding achievements and contributions of faculty, staff and students in the areas of Research Excellence, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Service, Teamwork, Humanitarian Work, Meritorious Achievement and Education.

The Award will be presented at a ceremony by Professor Bertil Andersson, NTU President on 12 March 2015 at the Nanyang Auditorium.

University-YMCA (Uni-Y) Singapore is the university service club of YMCA of Singapore. Uni-Y strives to make a difference in the community by creating positive social impact through community service and social enterprise programmes, and deliver holistic enrichment to its volunteers and members through personal and leadership development programmes. Uni-Y has student chapters in National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Management University (SMU).
