Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) is a united collective form of all intellectuals, who have high dedication in advancing science, technology, art, as well as social and humanities, through the Three Pillars of Higher Education. In its journey, ITB has contributed to the birth of many crucial roles in Indonesia. As a university, ITB is a comfortable and steady place for distinct intellectual and cultural activities. ITB provides an academic atmosphere that is open to ideas and experiences, critical and visionary thoughts, accompanied by attitudes that uphold academic freedom in scientific and cultural diversity.
In order with our Indonesian community's hopes as well as all ITB poeple, ITB Academic Senate has assembled the ITB Development Master Plan 2020-2025, which provides our directions for development to make our campus as "a Globally Respected and Locally Relevant". Until today, there are a lot of achievements that have been achieved by my predecessors. We should go forward. Rapid changes that happen nowadays, both national and global scale, must be continuously anticipated and responded critically, creatively, innovatively, with integrity and sovereignty. As an organization, ITB must always be an adaptive learning organization.
After a hundred years of brilliant contribution, now is the time for ITB to start over again, strengthening ourselves to be adaptive for the challenges, and designing transformation strategy for the next hundred years. The steps taken for the transformation of ITB 2025, has main characteristics as follows:
1. Three Pillars of Higher Education activities which facilitate all components of ITB academic community to provide our best performance;
2. Institutions that have a national reputation, provide solutions to our nation's problems, and can always keep and enhance the nation's dignity;
3. Institutions with respected academic reputations and equivalents with international partners;
4. ITB graduates that have international quality, with nationalist character, love their motherland, play critical roles at their work activities, have an initiative and innovative attitude, have a pioneering attitude, collaborative, and have integrity;
5. Sustainability of ITB's leadership regeneration that is always capable of transformative in every condition.
The transformation steps need to start from its foundation and gradually move to higher parts. Every member of ITB academic community has a significant role in transforming our lovely campus.
In principle, the strategy of Pencapaian Wujud ITB 2025 includes five steps. First, we will restructure our organization. It will make us be able to move agile, adaptive, and efficient. Also, we will manage our potential human resources as human capital to encourage the achievement of the best achievements; and we will maximize our utilization of Management Information Systems following best practices to support organizational functions and human performance.
Second, we will enhance our revenue through creative and innovative ways, with an emphasis on various activities that are relevant to our transformation implementation. Third, we will adopt the Education 4.0 paradigm. The critical factors of Education 4.0 are connectivity in learning, educational experience expansion to a borderless state, accompanied by strengthening students' abilities in critical thinking, complexity or non-linear thinking, interdisciplinary thinking, independent learning, and collective learning. Fourth, we will strengthen our overall system and our innovation ecosystem with a proven scientific and cultural foundation. Based on this fact, the formulation of a leading research agenda needs to be sharpened with a cross or transdisciplinary approach in order to able to respond to national interests and the dynamics of global science. Fifth, is change management. The participation of all elements of ITB is very vital in the transformation of ITB. Enthusiasm and commitment are the main things. Visions, goals, and objectives of transformation achievement need to be informed to all lecturers and staff. Communication needs to be continuously maintained and developed.
