Vice Rector of Academic Affairs, Prof. Dr. drh. Aulanni’am, DES

After having implemented hybrid lectures (online and offline), Universitas Brawijaya (UB) again held lectures in full online. This is stated in Rector’s order number 2196/UN10/TU/2022 dated 11 February 2022.

Vice Rector for Academic Affairs Prof. Dr. drh. Aulanni’am, DES conveyed that the return of lectures to the online system was due to the increasing positive cases of Covid-19 in Malang, so that UB with the Rector’s order required lectures to return online.

“This online lecture policy is carried out while waiting for the development of the Covid-19 case, until there is input from the UB Covid-19 Task Force that it is possible to return to the hybrid lecture system,” said Prof. Aulanni’am.

To suppress the increasing number of Covid-19 spreads in campus environment, UB Covid-19 Task Force actively monitors, tracks, and reports Covid-19 cases at universities. Likewise, the Campus Security Unit is required to regularly control activities that break health protocols in public facilities on campus.

The Head of UB Covid-19 Task Force, Prof. Dr. dr. Sri Andarini, M.Kes said, the Task Force provided a special hotline to serve students, lecturers, and education staff who were exposed to Covid-19. Civitas will be directed by the task force according to indications, whether to self-isolate at home, in isoters, or further treatment.

“The task force will evaluate every week, if indeed the Covid-19 case has decreased, it will be considered again for hybrid lectures,” said Prof. Andarini. [Irene/ Humas UB/ Trans. Iir]
