Faculty of Social and Political Sciences (FISIP) Universitas Brawijaya (UB) agreed to cooperate with the Regional Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPID) East Java, Monday (30/5/2022).
Not only FISIP, UB Political Science Study Program also cooperates with East Java KPID.
The Dean of FISIP, Dr Sholih Muadi SH., M.Si revealed that this collaboration with KPID is very important and strategic.
“All of our students are not only Communication Studies but all study programs whether it is Political Science, Psychology or others that can do internships there,” he said.
Sholih explained that KPID East Java could also be a strategic partner for the development of MBKM, not only for student internships.
“So with the recognition of 20 credits, collaboration with KPID is certainly good, especially if it can be developed again with the central KPI,” continued the man who is also a lecturer in Political Science UB.
Not only that, the collaboration with KPID East Java also allows FISIP to collaborate on research to joint book writing.
“One more thing we can collaborate with KPID so that they as practitioners can teach on campus,” said Sholih.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of the East Java KPID, Immanuel Yosua Tjiptosoewarno, said that KPID does not only act as a broadcast control institution but can also be a place of education so that the quality of broadcasts can improve.
“Of course this collaboration with FISIP can be an integral part. Students can learn from us about research results. The hope is, of course, if the broadcasting institution is high quality, the people will increase their literacy,” he said.
In this collaboration agenda, FISIP was represented by the Dean of FISIP, Vice Dean for Academic Affairs, Head of the Political Science Study Program and Head of PSIK FISIP. Meanwhile, the East Java KPID was represented by two commissioners, namely Immanuel Yosua Tjiptosoewarno and Romel Masykuri. (Humas FISIP/ Humas UB/ Trans. Iir)
