After some improvement, on Friday (31/7), UGM with Bank Mandiri established the Rekadaya Boga Plaza Humaniora Mandiri Canteen located at UGMâ€™s Faculty of Cultural Sciences. The ribbon was cut by the Special Director of Bank Mandiriâ€™s Asset Management, Abdul Rachman, accompanied by Senior Vice Rector for Administrative, Financial, and Human Resources Affairs, Prof. Ainun Na'im, Ph.D.
In his welcoming speech Abdul Rachman mentioned that the bond between UGM and Bank Mandiri has been established since long enough that many of UGMâ€™s alumni work at Bank Mandiri. Thus, he continued, all UGMâ€™s alumni should be prioritized when applying for job in Mandiri. Bank Mandiri in this occasion also commits to continue working with UGM in any form of cooperation possible.
Prof. Ainun added up to this by saying that UGM has been known as the agent of development, and so it realizes that it canâ€™t possibly be done without the help of the society and other instances.
Meanwhile, in terms of transforming Bonbin Canteen into Rekadaya Boga Plaza Humaniora Mandiri Canteen, the Executive Secretary of UGM Drs.
