Rector's Welcoming Remark

Sanata Dharma University (SDU) is one of the best private universities in Indonesia as reflected by its institutional accreditation rank A or Excellent since 2016 by the National Accreditation Board of Indonesia. Currently, there are fewer than 100 higher learning institutions which have been accredited an A, out of over 4,500 institutions in the country. This achievement was a result of a highly committed university management and Board of Trustee to develop Sanata Dharma since its establishment in 1955. Supported by more than 400 permanent faculty members, equipped with complete and high standards of learning facilities, laboratories, and a green environment. Students of Sanata Dharma enjoy the warmest and genuine learning relationships with their lecturers as well as their peers. Driven by Ignatian spirituality, learning dynamics and student character development are directed to facilitate graduates’ competence, conscience and compassion. Ignatian spirituality also drives research agendas that focus on the development of a more dignified society. Armed with Ignatian spirituality, Sanata Dharma lives its vision to become an excellent truth explorer for a more dignified society.

Welcome to Sanata Dharma University, where education means caring and sharing.
