Three Assessment Criteria
In conducting the ranking, MosIUR assesses the quality of universities based on the three key missions of universities: education, research, and community services. Regarding these three aspects, Dian said that UNAIR is quite comprehensive in the field of education because UNAIR offers various fields of knowledge to improve the quality of education, 174 study programs. Most of the provided study programs, continued Dian, have gained A-accreditations.
Furthermore, Dian also explained that from other ranking data, such as QS WUR, UNAIR faculty student ratio is decent at 8.96. It shows that one lecturer is responsible for the education and teaching of nine students so that the quality of knowledge conveyed to students is quite good.
“Furthermore, excellence in the education aspect also supports UNAIR in the quality of two other aspects, namely research and community service,” she added.
In the future, Dian said that efforts to improve the university’s performance will always be carried out relentlessly in various aspects and ensure that UNAIR can have an impact locally, nationally, and globally as an educational institution. For MosIUR, UNAIR hopes to reach the world ranking at 1000+ by 2022 and penetrate the world ranking of 750+ by the end of 2024.
