BANDUNG, unpas.ac.id – As commitment and consistency in running the program of Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka (MBKM), Universitas Pasundan keeps establishing the collaboration with various parties; one of which is with Majalengka District.
The collaboration was written in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the district and Rector of Unpas, as well as the Office for Public Works and Spatial Planning of Majalengka District and Director of Unpas Post-graduate Program.
The signing of MoU was held after the official launching of Unpas Rector’s new office, Jalan Tamansari No. 6-8, Bandung, on Monday, 20 Desember 2021.
MoU signing was attended by Unpas Rector Prof. Dr. Ir. H. Eddy Jusuf Sp, M.Si., M.Kom., IPU, Director of Unpas Post-graduate Program Prof. Dr. H. M. Didi Turmudzi, M.Si, para Wakil Rektor, as well as Director Assistants of Post-graduate Program.
Meanwhile, the event was also attended by the Regent of Majalengka Dr. H. Karna Sobahi, M.M.Pd along with staffs of Office for Public Works and Spatial Planning of Majalengka District.
The Rector said that this collaboration is the efforts which will still be carried out to build a synergy between regional government and university.
“Unpas provides opportunities to all parties to take collaboration as well, both from government institution, and state/private-owned enterprises. Therefore, the academic civitas can also implement the knowledge they obtained in the actual field,” he said.
From this collaboration, Unpas had its opportunity to invite the regional government of Majalengka District as a speaker regarding the spatial planning, University Tri Dharma, community service and research.
“We hope, for the next five years, the collaboration is going to get the result. And so is Unpas Post-graduate Program with the Office for Public Works and Spatial Planning of Majalengka District,” he continued.
Director of Unpas Post-graduate Program, Prof. Dr. H. M. Didi Turmudzi, M.Si who also signed the MoU explained that establishing a collaboration became a really important step to improve the quality of Unpas academic civitas.
“It is a pleasure to meet Regent of Majalengka from my birth place. With this collaboration, hopefully what the residents of Majalengka have hoped for could be realized, so that Majalengka continued to keep moving forward and create human resources who can contribute in any kind of fields,” he said.
As a response to what Prof. Didi said, Regent of Majalengka, Dr. H. Karna Sobahi, M.M.Pd also stated that the district is in need of skilful human resource to fasten the establishment. He thought a qualified human resource is created from the university.
He said that the Index of Human Development (Indeks Pembangunan Manusia, IPM) di Majalengka District was once far left behind and its poverty rated was quite high. The local government has tried to map out the problem, but the availability of human resources is constrained. Thus, it hampered the implementation of the established programs.
“We need qualified human resources; therefore, we hold a collaboration with Unpas, to help map out the urban planning. We believe that this collaboration will accelerate development in Majalengka District,”
Majalengka Regency was far behind and the poverty rate was quite high. The local government has tried to map out the problem, but the availability of human resources is constrained, thus hampering the implementation of the established program.
“We need qualified human resources, therefore we are working with Unpas, among others, to help map out urban planning. We believe that this collaboration will accelerate development in Majalengka Regency,” he concluded. (Reta)*
