Universities have frequently been regarded as key institutions involved in processes of social change and development. In relation to this role, Malaysian universities have realigned themselves towards goals like creating a ‘knowledge society’, an ‘achievement society’, a ‘democratic society’, a ‘global society’ or more likely, a combination of all of the above. The roles played by universities in the development period are varied, multiple and contradictory; sometimes reproductive of the status quo and sometimes transformative (Brennan & Lebeau, 2002). The main focus of a ‘traditional university’ in the Malaysian context is viewed in terms of its three primary functions: education, research and service to the community.
