The Role of the Provincial Universities in Regional Development in Indonesia: An Assessment.
Atmakusuma, A.; And Others
This research project was designed to study the present situation and functions of the provincial universities and to assess their role in regional development as well as to make recommendations for the more effective contributions to the development of the provinces in which they are situated. This project covered universities in 11 provinces (out of 26) in Indonesia. The institutions under study include both government and private universities. But in terms of geographical distribution and types of institutions, the 11 universities covered in this study can be said to be fairly representative of the provincial universities in Indonesia. The objective of the study was to determine how effective the relationship between universities and the planning agencies in the province is, and how adequately the universities are able to make meaningful contributions to the economic, social, and political growth of the provinces where they are located. From the results of the study it is obvious that universities participate actively in regional development in Indonesia. The appendix contains background information on the 11 universities studied and statistical tables that accompany the text. (Author/PG)
