Pancasila University is continuously trying to get International Accreditation and to be global, in order to meet the demands of graduates’ achievements, both from the industrial business world at home and abroad, government agencies and even international institutions. A few days ago, we signed an MOU with Padang State University and Padang Institute of Technology. As for international relations, we are also collaborating with Singapore Management University (SMU), Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), Technische Universitat Ilmenau Germany and Ateneo de Manila University School of Law.
Apart from that, the accreditation of the Study Program is also moving forward to become EXCELLENT starting with the Master of Law and Master of Pharmacy Study Programs. Next will follow the Master of Mechanical Engineering. This morning we have just opened the UNIID V Symposium 2002: “Science and Expertise Collaboration in Supporting Indonesia’s Infrastructure” which will be held in a hybrid from today to tomorrow at the Faculty of Engineering, a collaboration between Pancasila University, Padjadjaran University, PT Penjaminan Infrastruktur Indonesia.

Pancasila University is currently building a pharmacy building as a teaching factory, a bioavailability and bioequivalence laboratory, a halal lab, a cosmetic lab, and a multimedia classroom at the Faculty of Pharmacy, Pancasila University. For information, the newly appointed Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Prof. Dr. apt. Syamsudin, M. Biomed. received a MURI record award for the first Polyherbal research research that acts as an adjuvant therapy to increase the effectiveness of standard Covid-19 treatment. Research that is beneficial to the community and is currently widely used by both Government and Private Hospitals in Indonesia
Considering that the pandemic has caused quite a number of students and prospective students to have difficulty meeting tuition fees, Pancasila University collaborates with banks and other financial institutions to provide alternative payment methods.
Collaboration already done. Currently, it is with BNI through the Pay for Education Program via BNI Mobile Banking, and besides that, Pancasila University will also work with Dana Cita, a financial institution that has received OJK permission and has collaborated with many universities in providing education financing to prospective students. The Cita Fund will help students from the D3 – Postgraduate level in making tuition payments where students can pay in installments with a time span that is tailored to their abilities.
In the current era, UP is required to be able to transform, otherwise we will be left behind from other universities that have improved themselves and excelled. Cooperation with the media, both print media, online, TV in regional and national coverage is going very well. Activities at Pancasila University can be disseminated so that the public can follow our developments from time to time. The pandemic does not prevent UP from carrying out various activities that improve the quality of UP. The activities of the independent learning program can also be echoed so that it opens the insight of both students and prospective students that there are many things that can be obtained from lecture activities. Hopefully this can build the image and interest of students and the community to join Pancasila University. Therefore, innovations as a process of achieving harmony are needed. A gain of more than 100 percent is needed to catch up with our competitors.
In the last few years, we have proven that we work hard to catch up with various gaps, we do it with consistency and persistence to achieve what we want. Hopefully the inaugurated officials will be able to maintain harmony among all stakeholders at Pancasila University, be it students, lecturers, and education staff within the Pancasila University.
