For research MBKM and Village Building/KKNT MBKM have been carried out in the previous 2 periods. The MBKM for Developing Villages/KKNT which is currently running from May to July was attended by 68 students from 6 Study Programs, while the first period was attended by 71 students from 10 Study Programs.

The study programs participating in this ongoing period are Architecture Study Program, Archeology Study Program, Anthropology Study Program, History Study Program, International Relations Study Program and Tourism Travel Industry Study Program. It is hoped that this coordination meeting will increase the number of participants from MBKM to Build Villages/KKNT.

While the Rector of Unud said that the dynamics of the MBKM program are very fast and must be understood since it was announced three years ago and its output is getting higher. MBKM in a tertiary institution is of concern to the leadership from the highest to the ministerial level, becoming a very important product for tertiary institutions. All activities in the college are linked to our MBKM achievements. "So if we look at MBKM it is to cut/shorten the bridge or the distance between universities and the industrial world," said the Rector.

In the tertiary institution there is what is called a chancellor's performance contract, the first of which is that each rectors enters into a performance contract with ministries related to the ministry of finance and assets, and the second is a performance contract with the ministry of Education and Culture related to tridharma achievements which are mostly KPIs, and performance products This is an indicator of the success of a rector in leading a university.

For this reason, Unud is expected to continue to make various breakthroughs so that the number of MBKM participants increases from year to year, increases in terms of numbers, then programs that allow MBKM recognition must also be updated and improved. With this Coordination Meeting being held, the Rector hopes that how we coordinate now, so that MBKM achievements, especially in IKU 2, will not be red this year.
