PTS diminta Kembangkan Budaya Penelitian

foto-wisuda-21-desember-2013Perguruan Tinggi Swasta (PTS) di Sumatera Utara (SUMUT) diminta untuk mengembangkan budaya penelitian. Pemerintah sendiri memberikan dukungan, di antaranya dalam bentuk penyediaan dana hibah dengan nilai mencapai Rp 1 miliar lebih untuk setiap penelitian. Hal itu dikatakan Koordinator Kopertis Wilayah 1 Sumut-Aceh Prof Dr. Dian Armanto dalam sambutan wisuda Universitas Potensi Utama yang diikuti sebanyak 563 lulusan di Gedung Selecta.“Pemerintah sangat mendukung munculnya berbagai penelitian di berbagai perguruan tinggi, seperti penyediaan dana hibah hingga Rp 1,5 miliar untuk setiap penelitian. Mendiknas sendiri telah berpesan agar budaya akademis di perguruan tinggi dikembangkan”, jelasnya.       

       Bapak Dian Armanto mengatakan, Sumut Memiliki 267 PTS. Namun untuk tahun ini hanya ada 200 proposal penelitian yang dikirim ke Jakarta dan 145 diantaranya lulus uji untuk melanjutkan penelitian. Hal ini sangat jauh dibandingkan dengan salah satu daerah di Jawa, di Jakarta. Bapak Dian Armanto juga memberikan apresiasi kepada  Universitas Potensi Utama yang mendukung tumbuhnya budaya penelitian di kampus tersebut. Langkah ini, harus didukung demi pengembangan budaya akademis di Sumut. Ketua Yayasan Potensi Utama Bapak Bob Subhan Riza ST mengatakan, Universitas Potensi Utama terus berusaha meningkatkan mutu pendidikan. “Di tahun ini, kami melakukan berbagai upaya diantaranya penambahan fasilitas perkuliahan, mengadakan berbagai seminar dan pelatihan, khususnya di bidang computer, penambahan peralatan dan sarana komputerisasi serta perbaikan manjemen  lainnya,” tuturnya. Rektor Universitas Potensi Utama Rika Rosnelly, SH, M.kom mengatakan di usianya yang mencapai 10 tahun, Universitas Potensi Utama telah mengeluarkan sarjana komputer sebanyak 2008 alumni dan ahli madya computer sebanyak 1437 alumni.

 

         Ibu Rika Rosnelly, SH, M.Kom  meminta para wisudawan dan wisudawati dapat mengabdikan ilmunya, khususnya dibidang computer kepada masyarakat. Para lulusan juga diminta untuk tidak melupakan almamaternya.
