Dato’ Tan Liang Soong
Dato’ Tan Liang Soong was born in Johor Bahru, originated from Teo Ann district In Guangdong province. He was the former President of The Federation of Chen (Tan) Clan Association Malaysia, former President of Johor Bahru Tiong Hua Association, Deputy Chairman of Teochew Eight Districts Association and Southern University College. Among all, the title “deputy chairman” of Southern University College was mostly recognised by people.
For the non-government education in Malaysian Chinese community, the shortage of money and fundraising are both major issues faced. He was actively involved in the fundraising campaign for the building and development of Southern University College. In the national fundraising campaigns that he took charge of, he personally handled most of the works in almost every station. He was devoted in the works of education, even when he was sick, he gave no excuse to himself.
In the late 1990s, Southern University College has the intention to build a 4-storey student dormitory. Due to the many obstructions faced in fundraising, there was a suggestion to build only two male and female dormitory. Thus he took up the responsibility of fundraising, by leading his co-workers to step out to the society for fundraising. Even though the hardware construction of the university was not contributed solely by Dato’ Tan, but his dedicated spirit in fundraising during his lifetime is very touching indeed.

Silent Mentor Centre
In year 2011, University of Malaya has introduced the Silent Mentor Programme from Tzu Chi University, Taiwan, and in the following year, a Silent Mentor Centre was set up with the intention of instilling the correct concept of the body to the society. To date, the centre has organized 19 Silent Mentor Workshop, benefitting the medical students to perform simulation surgery on the bodies of the selfless “silent mentors” (the body donors), in learning anatomy.
Besides allowing the medical students to get actual experience in basic anatomy and understanding of human body, this programme also aims to cultivate professional and humanistic medical staffs. It is the hope that, through the workshops where the students were taught to treat the bodies with utmost respect and gentleness, the students can be inspired to become compassionate doctors in the future, and that they will be able to treat their future patients in empathy and thanksgiving.
The teaching and workshops of the Silent Mentor Programme have benefitted many medical programme in universities, as well as the medical students. This has helped to improve the medical education and medical care level in our country and fulfilled the core spirit of “Developing Nations with Technology: Be Innovative to Break New Ground” by Tan Kah Kee.
