Universitas Dian Nuswantoro (Udinus) welcomed representatives from the Ministry of Education in a visitation. At the visitation, both parties mainly discussed the Independent Campus Program, which was a part of the Merdeka Belajar – Kampus Merdeka (MBKM) policy.

The visitation took place in the conference room on the first floor of the H building, with the Chancellor of Udinus, Prof. Dr. Ir. Edi Noersasongko, M.Kom opening the whole discussion. As for the representatives from the Ministry of Education, there were five of them with Dessy Aliandrina., S.T., M.Sc., Ph.D as their leader and several others accompanying her, including Heribertus Suharyanto, S.Si., Donni Hadiwaluyo, S.Psi., M.A., Elroy Premana, S.Bns., and Kevin Ebenhaezer, S.Pd. The meeting lasted for three hours, and it mainly discussed the Independent Campus Program.

Dessy Aliandra, S.T., M.Sc., Ph.D., explained that this program aimed to conduct implementation research on the MBKM policy independence, designing a framework and roadmap for the independence of the MBKM policy. Moreover, it also aimed to shape MBKM into a form of movement instead of merely a program. 

“We would also like to oversee how this program is put into practice here at Udinus. This campus does possess various intriguing innovations, and hopefully, this could motivate other institutions to come up with innovations,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the chancellor expressed his utmost joy to the representatives from the Ministry of Education for choosing Udinus as a place to oversee the practice of the MBKM policy in Central Java. On the occasion, the chancellor also showed the representatives innovations created by Udinus, including the Sekar Nuswantoro Gamelan Robot, the Kampus Udinus Electric Pedicab, and Si Warik Animated Show.

“I hereby express my gratitude to representatives from the Ministry of Education for visiting our campus and seeing our innovations for the last several years. Hopefully, through this visitation, the Independent Campus Program team could get insight regarding universities in Central Java,” the chancellor concluded. (Humas Udinus/Alex. Foto: Humas Udinus)
