In Memoriam - Founding Director of OAR, Mr Peter Lim

10 September

Mr Peter Lim was one of NUS’ founding champions of alumni relations. Key tenets of his vision back in 1989 still resonate true today – the need to have a concerted approach toward alumni engagement, the importance of painstakingly compiled alumni records; these were but some of the founding principles he laid down during his time.

Mr Lim spent more than three decades with the university. His contributions as the former Director of NUS Alumni Affairs and Development Office, and in his many other roles with NUS ranging from Student Liason Officer to Deputy Registrar, will always be fondly remembered. Ideas that he put in motion, such as the NUS Multi-Purpose Cooperative Society (previously known as the University of Singapore Co-op Bookstore) to help students, stand till this very day. In celebration of his contributions, the Peter S T Lim bursary was established by alumni in Academic Year 1993/1994 to help financially disadvantaged undergraduate students from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
