The work functions of the three are of course different, one that focuses on the quality of education is LPM.

 

On Saturday, 22 July 2023, LPM UB was entrusted to be the second resource person at an international scale activity, namely the Quality Assurance Seminar “Quality Assurance of Higher Education in Indonesia” which is an activity as a result of collaboration between PERMITHA (Indonesian Student Association in Thailand) and the Indonesian Embassy in Thailand. The main informant, namely Mr. Ir. Achmad Wicaksono M.Eng., Ph.D., IPU. as the Education and Culture Attaché for the Indonesian Embassy in Thailand, who has also assisted UB’s quality assurance elements since 2010.

It is this pride that provides an opportunity for the Chairman of LPM, Dr. Shinta Hadiyantina, S.H., M.H to be able to convey UB’s Good Practices in running SPMI with the aim of maintaining education quality. Meanwhile, Mr. Ir. Achmad Wicaksono M.Eng., Ph.D., IPU. explained about the Introduction of the Higher Education Quality Assurance System.
