The Development of Research and Teaching at UII
A strong commitment and high spirit to encourage our hard work in doing various researches and research collaborations have placed UII as the Private University with the Best Research Performance in Indonesia (Ministry of Research and Technology of Higher Education, 2016).
Universitas Islam Indonesia has placed research and community service as one of the leading components in achieving UII’s goal to be beneficial to the community (rahmatan lil-alamin) as well as developing the university.
Apart from being supported by a number of research and study centres that focus on various fields of science with the goal of continuing to develop innovation in universities, research development by the UII academics is also supervised by the Directorate of Community Research and Empowerment which is responsible for carrying out, coordinating, monitoring, and assessing the conducting of researches and community services at Universitas Islam Indonesia.
