Medan, April 20 - In an effort to expand international cooperation, University Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) has carried out its corporate social responsibility (CSR) to more than 200 students and academic staff of the Islamic University of North Sumatra (UISU) through an academic and industry lecture which was held at the university recently.
