LOLC Group recently signed an MoU with the Alumni Association of the University of Colombo (UoC), extending its engagement with the UoC Partnership Programme for another year up to October 2021. LOLC has been an Alumni Partner of the Alumni Association since 2017.

The UoC Partnership Programme is an initiative of the Alumni Association of the University of Colombo, which represents the entire Alumni population of the University of Colombo to work closely with leading private and public sector organisations to provide opportunities for enhanced corporate sector involvement and support in the UoC’s activities.As in the previous year, this Partnership Programme will provide support to the several Student Development and Welfare activities including Mentoring, Communication, Soft Skills and Leadership Programmes, Career Guidance, Inspirational Talks, Health Programs, Member Engagement and Social activities carried out by the alumni.

UoC Alumni President Rajeev Amarasuriya said that he greatly appreciated LOLC, a leading and diversified conglomerate for being an Alumni Partner for the fourth year running. He went on to state that the last two years has been a difficult year for everyone and appreciated the continuous support and engagement by LOLC.  He said that it was because of alumni partners such as LOLC that the Alumni Association was able to conduct its student welfare activities, and also stated that many new activities are lined up for the coming year, with the focus being the construction of an international standard swimming pool complex for the University of Colombo and was hopeful that the same would see reality before long.

LOLC Chief Human Resources Officer Pradeep Uluwaduge said: “It is indeed a pleasure to be partnered with Sri Lanka’s premier university for the fifth consecutive year as one of the corporate partners. As a responsible corporate citizen, LOLC Group is always keen to seize opportunities where a significant social value creation can be done. 

“Corporate partnership with the Alumni of the University of Colombo creates us a platform where we can join hands with them in their multiple projects aimed at student welfare and development.”
