Taking place at central courtyard of Tadulako University (Untad), the 94th graduation ceremony on Thursday (11/08/2018) morning was running in more solemn tones after the earthquake caused massive damages to a number of campus facilities on last September 28th.

In his speech, Prof. Dr. Hasan Basri as the Chairman of Untad Academic Senate hoped the simple graduation venue, a dome tent the university has prepared, did not lower the excitement of the participants on this momentous day of theirs.

“There have been so many changes we witness today. It is the first time for Untad to hold outdoor graduation, setting up a dome tent, what a very simple venue it is. Yet, today is also a historic day since it is Untad first graduation ever attended directly by the Minister of Research, Technology, and Higher Education (Menristekdikti). Hopefully, this moment can encourage the participants to strive to be the best alumni even in the midst of sorrow,” said Prof. Hasan Basri.

On the same moment, Prof. Dr. Ir. Muhammad Basir, S.E., M.S., as the Rector, in his alma mater speech, spread enthusiasm, ‘Through Grief, We Rise Up’.

“Representing the big family of Tadulako University, the graduates and their relatives, I would like to say thank you for being here, the Minister, the Directorate General, and team in post-disaster recovery time. Your presence means a lot. You are such spirit and energy boosters to us, to keep committing to Three Pillars of Higher Education. To all graduates and the relatives, congratulations, I know you are still struggling to heal yet the Minister and team are here now to support you. Only prayer we can give back to the Minister and team to express our deepest gratitude that they do care for us, the big family of Tadulako University and people of Central Sulawesi, who are being tested by Allah through the hardship,” said Prof. Basir.

The next speech was delivered by Prof. H. Mohamad Nasir, Ph.D., Ak., as the Minister of Research, Technology, and Higher Education. He said the ministry is really responsive to Tadulako University as recommended by the President, Joko Widodo. Besides, the ministry also provide Bidikmisi and PPA scholarship for the student survivors of earthquake, tsunami, and liquefaction.

“So far, 896 students are on the list as the grantee, and definitely this number will increase to match the database. This represents our commitment to keep supporting Untad. After coordinating with Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing, we provide Untad with Rp283 billion in estimation of post-earthquake rehabilitation. Many students may suffer from this disaster, however, we expect they will never lose hope in education as well. Hopefully, these current graduates will be able to have competitive quality and create positive change in the world,” said Prof. Muhamad Nasir.

In the end of the speech, the Minister symbolically handed LCD and projector to the Rector. Afterwards, the Rector along with the Deans of each faculties officially inaugurated the alumni. You can see some graduation moment here.
