The process of accreditation is substantially important in order to obtain inputs on a study program. Through the accreditation process, study programs obtain the valuation from an external party which is the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education (BAN-PT). As a result, it is expected to obtain the best quality learning process.
The statement was delivered by the Rector, Prof. Dr. Agustinus Purna Irawan, while welcoming the assessors from the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education during their visit for the Faculty of Communications of Untar, on Friday (25/8) at the executive lounge of Untar Campus I. The Assessors of the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education who conducted the visitation for the Faculty of Communications are Dra. Prahastiwi Utari, M.Si., Ph.D. (Universitas Negeri Sebelas Maret), and Dr. Catur Suratnoaji, M.Si. (UPN “Veteran” Jatim).
Meanwhile, the Dean of Faculty of Communications, Dr. Riris Loisa states that the process of accreditation is an effort in helping the Faculty to evaluate their achievements. The results of the evaluation could give inputs for further improvement. “Accreditation plays a huge role and contributes to spreading the communication studies for the society and education”, states the Dean.
“The Assessors are actually colleagues for us to learn from each other. Basically, we obtain inputs from the visitation itself. We hope that the accreditation program could achieve the best result, not only for the Faculty of Communications of Untar but also the communication studies as a whole”, states Dra. Prahastiwi Utari, M.Si., Ph.D., when representing the team of assessors.
