The National Accreditation Board for Higher Education (BAN PT) held a two–day virtual site visit to evaluate Islamic Economic Study Program’s compliance with the agency’s accreditation principles (October 15-16, 2021).
The visiting committee was led by Dr. Imam Yahya, M.Ag. senior lecturer at UIN Walisongo Semarang. Also on the committee is Dr. Syafiq M. Hanafi, senior lecturer at UIN Sunan Kalijaga.
The accreditation principals stem from the agency’s eight core values: (1) governance and cooperation (2) students (3) human resources (4) finance, facilities, and infrastructure (5) education (6) research (7) community service, and (8) tridharma outcomes and achievements.
Fathurrahman Azhari, Dean of FEBI, said he thought “our campus was well represented” during the site visit.
“I was personally involved with several separate meetings . . . one of those meetings was specific to our campus,” he said.
When asked if the meeting atmosphere encouraged the free sharing of problems and challenges in consolidation, he responded positively about the sessions he attended.
“Yes, the meetings were conversational. Some of the site visit members that we had the conversations with had gone through consolidations themselves so they were familiar with what we were going through,” Fathurrahman said.
