A realistic vision of a higher education institution

Yesterday, I’ve taken around by Dr. Handojo Djati Utomo, a lecturer at Singapore Polytechnic (SP), to look around the campus of SP, the oldest polytechnic in Singapore. He explained the involvement of SP in supporting Singapore to become a developed country. The above photos described the vision of SP: “A leading institution that prepares our students to be work-ready, life-ready and world ready“. In my opinion, this is a good example of the vision of an institution of higher education. A vision that is grounded to the earth.

Indeed, there is nothing wrong with making whatever vision. But, by creating a grandiose vision – sometimes makes people feel ’embarrassed’ to read it.
