KPU Chairman, Hasyim Asy’ari, S.H., M.Si., Ph.D., urged UNDIP students to continually absorb knowledge, not only cognitive but also affective and psychomotor. Moreover, logical thinking abilities and creativity should always be honed.

In his remarks, Prof. Dr. Suharnomo, S.E., M.Si. warmly welcomed the collaboration between UNDIP and KPU RI. According to him, it was the right time for UNDIP to appear in the public sphere and take part in addressing national problems from an academic perspective.

“The university is the most ideal place to generate bright ideas to represent the people. So, if the people feel wronged, there is someone to speak on their behalf. Hopefully, we can be part of a university that helps safeguard this nation,” said the Rector of UNDIP. (Hng-Humas)
