YOGYAKARTA- Rector of Universitas Gadjah Mada, Prof. Dr. Pratikno, M. Soc. Sc., inaugurated Caretaker of Institute for Research and Community Service (LPPM) of UGM, Dr. drh. Raden Wisnu Nurcahyo, replacing the previous Chairman, Prof. Dr. Techn. Ir. Danang Parikesit, M.Sc. at Leadership Conference Room, Monday (30/7). The inauguration ceremony was attended by all Vice Rectors and University leadership.
The inauguration began with the reading of the Decree of the Rector by Head of Sub-Directorate of Human Resources, Bambang Dwi Suko Widodo, S.Mn., followed by the signing of the minutes of official oath by the new official. After the inauguration, Prof. Dr. Pratikno, M. Soc. Sc, in his speech hoped LPPM can continue to improve its performance.
"Most university programs have been mandated to LPPM. We thank Prof. Danang who has built a strong foundation of LPPM," Pratikno said.
So far, according to the Rector, a lot of University’s progress is built through LPPM, for example, in achieving World Class Research University (WCRU). LPPM is also quite good in the management system and development of information technology (IT). One thing that still needs to be addressed, according to the Rector, is the management of center of studies.
Related to the management of center of studies, the Rector added, there will be a workshop to discuss a few things, particularly the reorganization of center of studies. The inauguration ceremony was followed by prayers and congratulatory greeting.
