In a past interview with mStar, Rizalman revealed his plans to be more active in getting familiar with the learning institute’s current situation as the first step in carrying out his duty. According to him, “I will participate in meeting folks from several walks of life, ranging from the management, lecturers, students as well as the janitorial staff.”

“All of them are the backbones of UiTM. It is very important for me to meet them in order to find out about the current situation and also the problems that need to be fixed,” he added in the chat.

When asked about his interest on becoming a lecturer and share his experience and expertise in the fashion field, Rizalman responded by saying that he never thought of being appointed to join UiTM’s academic staff, as he doesn’t have any background or qualifications to be an educator.

Instead, he assured everyone that he will carry out his responsibilities as UiTM’s board of directors. This includes further upgrading the university in various aspects with careful planning.
