Welcome to EDUCARE: International Journal for Educational Studies
Foreword for EDUCARE-IJES, 6(2) February 2014 Issue
Wr. Wbr. (Peace be upon
Let us thanks to our
Almighty, Allah SWT (Subhanahu Wa-Ta'ala), who has bestowed us all the best
blessings and prosperity. Peace may be upon to our Great
Prophet Muhammad SAW (Salallahu ‘Alaihi Wassalam), his companions, his family,
and his faithful and dutiful followers until the end of the world. Amien.
As the Rector of UMP (Muhammadiyah University of Purwokerto) in Central Java, Indonesia, kindly allow me to convey several things which will be the part of
commitment and big work of UMP in revealing the World Class University. First, in academic level, nowadays UMP has 11
Faculties and 1 Post-Graduate Program with details as follow: 3 (three) Diploma
Study Program III (D III), 25 (twenty five) Bachelor Degree Program (S-1), 1
Post-Graduate Program (S-2), and 2 (two) Profession Program. Dealing with the
competition of higher education in national and international also by
considering the rapid development of knowledge, technology, and culture, we believe that in 10 years forward the number of
study program either S-1 or S-2 in UMP will be developed and increased. Related
to the presence of new study program in the future, it is in line with the
commitment of UMP to answer the society's need in terms of academic superiority
and professional graduates of UMP.
Second, as cited in the vision and mission, UMP is
determined in preparing the qualified, excellent, professional, entrepreneur
minded and Islamic graduates through modern education and independence in its
science discipline in which it is fully supported by information technology and
communication. It is also accompanied by the system of quality assurance which
is held by the Institution of Quality
Assurance in UMP. UMP applies conducive, interactive and Islamic learning
concept between lecturers and students. It is also supported by academicians
teaching staffs and practitioners who have competence and experience in each
field; well-acknowledged university graduates in Indonesia and overseas which
have a high commitment in each knowledge discipline. UMP also has
representative classes and labs with good
quality of facilities. As the result, the optimal and conducive teaching and
learning atmosphere could be established. The students will also have opportunity
to apply their knowledge and skill in various institutions and companies in
which it will increase the students' ability either in hard skill or soft skill
which will be the promising get a job after graduation.
Third, as the Muhammadiyah
(followers of the Prophet Muhammad) university, UMP
will definitely make serious effort in supporting the mission: "Making UMP as the center of excellence within the
region (‘uswahhasanah' or center of superiority) in terms of education, research, and service
toward society and also as the driving force of religious proselytizing and ‘Tajdid Muhammadiyah' which traverse time to create the real Islamic society and to give
inspiration along with contribution in educating and brighten nation's life".
Referring to the mission, superiorities can be briefly
formulated in which those are needed to be grown by all "Civitas Academica" in UMP. The superiorities are critical thinking, creativeness,
willingness to increase knowledge concept and research aptitude, open minded
upon diversities in serving excitement toward students and society. In
addition, it can be added as expanding the Islamic tenets as "rahmatan lil-‘alamin". Especially, I do
realize that the lecturers of UMP really need to increase the spirit of
researching, writing, and publishing the result of the research in various
scientific forums either in journal or in international scientific conference.
Fourth, the commitment to provide scholarships for
students is still be the main focus of UMP. For students who have achievements
in several fields such as science, sport, and culture as the first winner, 1st
runner up, 2nd runner up in province and national level, UMP will
gives scholarship opportunity and learning facilities. The achievements which
have been accomplished by UMP during 2012-2013 are reported by students'
advisory with the detail, one of them is as
follow: 1st winner of Short Story Creation in Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa University,
Banten, West Java, Indonesia, on behalf of Irfan M. Nugroho; and 3rd Winner Talented Students Championship in Central
Java Province Level, on behalf of Arini Syarifah.
make serious effort in varied corporations in realizing UMP vision and mission.
In the process of educating and brighten national's life, UMP's goal to produce
qualified graduates can only be realized through corporations either with
internal or external side of UMP.
those are things which will be the commitment and big work of UMP in realizing
the goal to be World Class University (WCU). It is hoped that by publishing the
EDUCARE journal, UMP can produce qualified writers by showing accountability in
lecturers' research, increasing ability and culture to make a research by
writing and publishing journal. This EDUCARE journal can be a model to guide
Study Program's journals which have not been accredited and publish the result
of the research in international journal publisher.
would like to give gratitude toward all staffs and sides which have worked very
hard for arranging the EDUCARE journal. Hopefully, all efforts and patience can
bring our goal in reality. Final words, may Allah SWT bring easiness and
strength in every step in our life.
Do enjoy reading the EDUCARE journal and hopefully you
will derive much benefit from it. Wassalamu'alaikum
Wr. Wbr. (peace be also upon you). Dr. Haji Syamsuhadi Irsyad, Rector of UMP in Purwokerto City, Central Java, Indonesia.
