Astragraphia Supports Optimization of University Press in the "Independent Campus Program" in University

7 July 2020 - The third Astragraphia Webinar was held with the title "Optimizing the Development of the University Press as Support for the Independent Campus Program in University"

University Press is needed by a university to support the publication of scientific works that have been produced by educational actors, be it lecturers, young researchers / academics or prospective scholars. University Press also has a central role in improving the academic level, both in supporting accreditation and in the implementation of the Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi. One of the central roles is community service through the responsibility of publishing intellectual assets, including scientific journals, textbooks, literature, theses, theses, and others.

This year, University Press faces more challenges due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. University Press operations have experienced a drastic decline, because universities are required to temporarily close during the PSBB (Large-Scale Social Restriction) period. Apart from this, the implementation of new regulations, namely the Minister of Education and Culture (Permendikbud) Regulation No. 4 of 2020 and the "Independent Campus" policy are expected to become a reference for the University.

This webinar was completed on Tuesday, 7 July 2020 and was attended by 112 people and the majority came from University Press and Higher Education. The thirrd Astragraphia webinar will last 120 minutes and collaborates with competent speakers as Keynote Speakers, namely the Chairperson of APPTI Mr. Dr. Purnomo Ananto, MM and collaborated with Gramedia and IPB Press and moderated by Mr. Nanang Varisdianto as Graphic Communications Services Industry Specialist from PT Astra Graphia Tbk.

The topics brought up on this occasion included:

  • Topic 1: "Development of University Press to support" Independent Campus Program "by Mr. Erick Wahyudyono who is the Director of IPB Press.
  • Topic 2: "The Role of Digital Print in building the Publishing Industry in Indonesia" by Mr. Karyadi Karsono as PT Gramedia's Strategy Formulation.

We would like to thank the participants who have participated in the Astragraphia Webinar "Optimizing University Press as Support for the Independent Campus Program in University". Hopefully this Astragraphia Webinar can provide insight and become a positive stimulus for University Press.
