At the end of this year, Universitas Ubudiyah Indonesia (UUI) once again established its academic cooperation at international level. This time, UUI attended as one of the center of attention at the prestigious AUPF event. The AUPF is a meeting place for the best rectors and university leaders in Asia. Delegation which present on the occasion were UUI Rector Prof Adjunct Marniati, SE., MKes., Mr. Dedi Zefrizal as President of Ubudiyah Foundation, and Prof. Dato ‘Kamarudin Hussin as UUI councellor.
AUPF, or Asia University President Forum, an event organized by Philippines Normal University, one of the best universities in the Philippines, in downtown Manila and attended by nearly 200 delegates of the best college campuses in Asia. The attendees include the delegates from Universiti Malaysia Perlis, Petra Christian University, National TsingHua University of Taiwan, Kansai University of Japan, Dongseo University of South Korea, Chiang Mai University of Thailand, Asia University of Japan, and many more. Once again, UUI was able to grab the attention of all the delegates.
On that occasion, UUI has also signed an academic cooperation agreement (MoU) between UUI and some of the best universities such as the Philippines Normal University (PNU), Wenzao Ursuline University of Taiwan, and Saint Michael’s College of Philippines. In fact, PNU is willing to support UUI to hold an international conference in 2018. As is known, every year UUI has an international conference program held in December.
And the most important is the presentation of journals and discussions among the university officials who attended as a form of exchange of ideas and thoughts about the future development of the academic world. On this occasion, UUI represented by Prof. Dato ‘Kamarudin Hussin proposed a topic on Sustainable Campus Strategy. This topic is able to create a warm discussion climate and prove that UUI has a step ahead of the university in attendance.
Going forward, UUI will be joining Sustainable Campus Networks (SCN), an exclusive network of top campuses in the world that have a sustainable campus development strategy. This is in line with UUI jargon as World Class Cyber University and Best University in Asia by 2020.
