Kenneth's Story

Kenneth Paul Tan is an Associate Professor at the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, where he has taught since 2007 and served as its fourth Vice Dean for Academic Affairs from 2013 to 2017. Since 2000, he has received more than 10 teaching awards, including the Outstanding Educator Award in 2009, the most prestigious teaching honour bestowed by the University. In 2012, he was elected Chair of the NUS Teaching Academy, where he has been a Fellow since it was established in 2009. 

Though he claims that he was persuaded to run by Ah Siao (Relay Majulah committee member), we know that this avid runner is also drawn to the idea of running for a purpose. Kenneth states that his "wish is for all of us to feel more responsible for one another; to go against the grain of selfish, competitive, and accumulative individualism so encouraged by our modern lives; and to build a resilient social basis on which everyone can live in dignity."

Kenneth is running in Relay Majulah to remind himself as well as many others of how much we all need one another.
