The Rector added that the key to the change of the Indonesian nation in exploring this millennium era, is our ability to maintain integrity as a nation that is virtuous, honest, fair and caring but also prestigious and competitive with other nations, “he said.
“Indonesia is a huge nation, but we don’t want this nation to be known for its large population, but for its competitiveness potential.”
“A great nation is a nation that is supported by the research and science that it does, and with that, Undip will respond and bring its vision to become a superior Research University. We believe that strong and great research alone will bring the Indonesian nation as a world respected nation, “he concluded.
