University of Macau (UM) Vice Rector (Student Affairs) Billy So officiated at the ceremony. In his speech, So said that after nine years of development, the UM Reporter Programme and the PRSA Programme have become two excellent brands among student programmes at UM. They are vehicles for students to receive community and peer education and help to strengthen the ties between the university and the community. Through the two programmes, students can develop soft skills, broaden their horizons, and increase their employability. Rector Yonghua Song also attended the ceremony to show support to the students.
