The Student Creativity Program (PKM) is the flagship program for each campus. Universitas Brawijaya (UB) is one of the most successful campuses in this field. No wonder the Indonesian Islamic University (UII) Yogyakarta chooses UB as a place to study about PKM.

Around 25 lecturers and students from the Faculty of Psychology and Socio-Cultural Sciences conducted a comparative study to FISIP UB, Wednesday (12/1/2022). Their main goal is PKM and student development.

Vice Dean 3 of FISIP UB, Dr. Bambang Dwi Prasetyo, revealed that activities in FISIP UB more involving students.

“In addition, UB is also second ranked nationally for the assessment of student involvement,” he said.

Especially for PKM, Bambang Dwi explained that the involvement of BARIS student institutions and student coordinator lecturers in each study program was effective in encouraging students to participate in PKM activities.

“Before PIMNAS, there was also a Rector Cup in UB as a warm-up for the national event. Usually it is done at the beginning of the year,” he said.

Meanwhile, Vice Dean for Student Affairs of UII Yogyakarta, Dr. Phil Emi Zulaifah, revealed that her party last won a medal at the 2016 PIMNAS event.

“After that, we were only limited to being finalists. Hopefully with this visit, we can get interesting inputs from FISIP UB,” he said.

In the moment of discussion, FISIP UB reveals one of the strategies for writing productive PKM proposals every year, one of which is giving writing assignments to new students.

“They are required to collect and later become a graduation assessment for the introduction of new student campus life,” said Expert Staff of Vice Dean 3 FISIP UB, Wimmy Halim.

In addition, the appointment of a student coordinator lecturer in each study program also ease the productivity at the student level.
