Keywords:Collaborative, Capacity Development Efforts, A case of Kampung Hujung Rintis, Perak and UiTM Cawangan Selangor, Malaysia
Public universities have been directed to have more collaborative projects with disadvantaged communities for capacity and sustainable developments. In the case of Universiti Teknologi MARA, Selangor Branch (UCS), the success stories on community engagement and capacity development have been shown with Kampung Hujung Rintis, Perak, Malaysia. This paper aims to showcase impacts on collaborative efforts through a live research laboratory for data collection using multiple techniques. The feedbacks from cross-disciplinary projects were for the implementation of capacity-development initiatives at Kampung Hujung Rintis. The implications from the case events showed that continuous community engagements would be beneficial for all parties involved.
