Message from the Rector

Assalamualaikum wr. wb. (May God’s blessings be upon you all.)

Praise be to Allah the Most Merciful and the Most Beneficent for His Blessings and Guidance and peace be upon Muhammad the Most Blessed Prophet from whom we have learned invaluable and noble values through his role model.

Yogyakarta State University (YSU) envisions to be a world-class university, evidenced in its success to facilitate the development of its students to be devout, autonomous, and intelligent scholars, who are highly recognized both within the country and abroad. Such a vision has aroused our awareness of a new development chapter, which is indeed challenging, in the context of the globalizing and globalized world.

To answer such a great challenge, we are committed to (1) implementing the total quality management, (2) developing transformational leadership, and (3) ensuring that we uphold our academic ethics, observe our religious values, preserve our noble cultural values, and replace our outdated values with new values necessary to make our new chapter run effectively and efficiently. With all these commitments, we have obliged ourselves to build the capacities of both academic and non-academic staff and the capacities of all existing institutions, and develop a quality working culture.

Welcome to our website and we look forward to your visit.

Wassalamualaikum wr. wb. (Again May God’s blessings be upon you all.)
