Universities are in unique position to deal with change; universities should present modeling leadership in flexibility and transformation. Universitas Gadjah Mada takes this responsibility seriously, not forgetting that the role of a university is to benefit the nation and humanity. Through research and education programs that are dedicated to generating new knowledge, the university is committed to serving the needs of the society. Research is the foundation of all knowledge, both that which is taught and that which informs service, and as such, research is central to role of a world-class university. Universitas Gadjah Mada is dedicated to supporting research and teaching that can increase prosperity, security and human welfare. This commitment requires research that is relevant, faculty who are empowered, and administration that is efficient. These goals are not simple to achieve, and are never fully met. Instead, Universitas Gadjah Mada recognizes that this is an ongoing, continual process of improvement, one which requires an engagement with global networks, but which remains committed to uniquely Indonesian values. Strong administrative leadership is necessary to insure that faculties are able to generate knowledge that contributes to a sustainable society, and that citizens are able to access the equity in that knowledge. In the spirit of this commitment, it is vital that universities address pressing social issues such as poverty and social tension.

Chemistry Program

The prosperity of modern societies is partly based on the far-reaching achievements of Chemistry. Progress in this discipline enables innovations in medicine, agriculture, energy, and in almost all manufacturing sectors of industry and materials for everyday use. With it, chemistry contributes to the improvement of the quality of life of people.


The Chemistry Department which is nationally leading and internationally recognized in education, research, and community services has responsibility to prepare qualified graduates having excellent knowledge and skills in Chemistry, capability to manage international collaboration and competition, as well as motivation to achieve the prosperity of mankind. The Department of Chemistry was established on September 1, 1960 and then achieved its international reputation in a couple decades ago. The postgraduate programs were inaugurated in 1980. Now, it offers undergraduate, master, and doctoral programs. Currently, the enrollment comprises 478 undergraduate, 180 master, and 84 Ph.D. students. As of May 2011, the department has granted 1883 B.Sc. (Sarjana Sains), 350 M.Sc., and 21 Ph.D. degrees.


The department has 43 educative staff members, 34 of them are Ph.D. holders. Among the Ph.D. members, 25 have overseas Ph.D. degrees. Of them, 14 are professors and 18 associate professors. There are 7 educative staff members taking Ph.D. courses in overseas and domestic universities. It is supported by 34 quality technicians and administration staffs.
