The Rector, Prof. Dr. Ir. Nuhfil Hanani, A.R., M.S. said that the giving of GIRAFFE Award marks UB awakening to become international.
“After there have been many international achievements that have been achieved by UB before, such as 33 study programs that have achieved international accreditation, the Times Higher Education (THE) version that UB is in the 4th best position in Indonesia, for Asian ranking of THE version is in the 401+, and QS Asia in 301-305 Best. With the GIRAFFE Award, it will stimulate the academic community to increase UB ranking in the international arena, “said Nuhfil.
Meanwhile, Vice Rector IV of Planning and Cooperation, Prof. Dr. Ir. Moch. Sasmito Djati, M.S. said GIRAFFE stands for Government, Innovation, Reputation, Alumni, Faculty, Fund, and Efficiency, and is one of the university’s strategies to improve international rankings.
He explained that UB position in the international arena is in the performance contract of the Rector with the General Director of the Ministry of Education and Culture.
“One of the contents of the performance contract is that UB must be in the 500+ position. Whereas as an institution, we are currently in the 800-1000 world, “he said.
Therefore, a strategy is needed that must be done systematically, integrative, and all parties must be involved.
“One of the prominent parts that must be designed is GIRAFFE. All are revealed in the Performance Indicators. The performance indicator is linked to the contract of the Rector with the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Ministry of Finance as well as with our own Strategic Plan, in which finally we can reach 500 worlds, “he said.
Furthermore, the professor of Molecular Reproductive Biology hopes that this award will encourage individuals and systems to be involved in all indicators in GIRAFFE so that they can carry out the agreed performance contract.
