LP3M of Udayana University Holds FIBAA International Accreditation Workshop for Social-Humanities Study Program

The Institute for Learning Development and Quality Assurance (LP3M) of Udayana University held an FIBAA International Accreditation Workshop for Social-Humanities Study Programs at Udayana University online through the Cisco Webex application, Saturday (05/02/2022). The activity which was opened by the Rector of Udayana University was attended by the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs, the Chair and Secretary of LP3M, the Deans and Vice Deans I, Study Program Coordinators, as well as UP3M and TPPM Faculties at Udayana University.

Head of LP3M Udayana University Ir. I Nengah Sujaya, M.Agr.Sc. Ph.D. in his report stated that it has become a demand that higher education institutions are not only qualified at the national level but also must be qualified at the international level. In this regard, Udayana University through the Rector has launched a study program that will be expected to meet international accreditation criteria, namely the FIBAA International Accreditation. The head of LP3M hopes that after the Workshop is held, Udayana University can decide which study programs will be included in the FIBAA International Accreditation.

Rector of Udayana University Prof. Dr. Ir. I Nyoman Gde Antara, M.Eng., IPU. in his speech said that International Accreditation is needed for Universities in order to fulfill the Main Performance Indicators (KPI) of Higher Education. In the Key Performance Indicators, universities are required to have at least 4 internationally accredited study programs. AUN-QA certification which is already owned by several study programs at Unud is not included in international accreditation, so that formally Udayana University does not yet have international accreditation status in any of its study programs. The Rector also said that he would prioritize several study programs that were qualified to be included in the FIBAA International Accreditation. It is hoped that in 2022, several study programs at Udayana University can achieve international accreditation so that they can meet the Main Higher Education Performance Indicators.
