“We must have communication strategy to unify the alumni of Unpad,” said Sapta.

He also considered that Unpad’s potential in particular has not been effectively delivered, both at the national and international levels. In fact, at the international level, many ambassadors of Indonesia are Unpad‟s alumni. Therefore, he encouraged Unpad to be able to map the potential of alumni at the international level.

Deputy VI of Communication and Information of National Intelligence Agency, Sundawan Salya, expressed his consideration to contribute in improving the performance of Unpad.

Former Head of Public Relations Bureau at the Ministry of Finance said that almost all of government institutions in Indonesia have not built a pattern of public relations well. “It can be raised on the international level because it deals with nationality and nationalism.” said Prof. Aidul. The establishment of strong relationship between alumni and alma mater becomes one of the factors to improve the quality of universities.

take their further study abroad. Although, future college students who don’t get a scholarship, Unpad ready to facilitate them. Rector said if lecturers still don’t have a chance to take their further study to abroad, so they should take their further studies in During his speech in front of university leaders and Unpad. faculty leaders held in Pantai Indah Resort Hotel, “Lecturers who advanced their further study in Pangandaran, on Thursday (7/12) at night, the rector Unpad still have to give the same outcomes as said, from several performance indicators, beside lecturers who advanced their study abroad. At least, it, they choose several indicators that have a strong they have three international scientific publications. leverage and derivative. One of the indicators which As a result, human capital enhancement jacks up are highlighted is the capacity of human resources. the performance of academic” he explained. The first thing that rector explained is about the ratio of lecturers and students. In this year, the ratio of lecturers and students in Unpad is on a good level, although they are having disparity ratio between faculties.

On the other side, the promoter of S-3 program will be comprehensive. Unpad will appoint promoter candidate head lecturer lector who has grant research. One of promoter programs should be from abroad.

“If we are not careful, we will not have a good performance,” the rector said.

Unpad targets, in 2019, Unpad is expected to have no lecturer who still holds S-1. And in the next 2020, Unpad is expected to have no lecture not educated as doctor.

The capacity of current lecturers increased their quality. Currently, a number of lecturers with a doctorate degree in every faculty in Unpad still experience disparity. For that, Unpad should encourage their lecturers who don’t have a doctorate degree to take a further study. There is an effort from Unpad to facilitate further study for all lecturers. Human resources development became authorized capital. Rector explains, begin from next semester to encourage all lecturers in Unpad to have a doctoral degree.

Improvement of Scientific Publications In the sector of scientific publications, Unpad has increased the number of publications at the international level. A total of 431 scientific articles were published in the Scopus-indexed journal as of December 6, 2017. Of these, 348 publications are pure articles generated from internal scientific research and writing.

Rector said the number is dominated by research that is in Quartile (Q) 1 to 4. Quartile itself is a cluster of journal quality. Being at that level exerts a strong influence, especially on the index of citation and upgrading of academic positions. This scientific publication is deemed important when associated with the H-Index, or an index of the productivity measurement of scholarly work of an academic. The Rector said that the publication generated from the proceedings of international seminars has little effect on the H-Index. The higher the standard set, the standard of Doctor Program promoter in Unpad is also more comprehensive. In addition to being required to have research activities, prospective promoters are also encouraged to have an H-Index and experience of international publications. The stricter the standard aims to make students more “safe” in running academic activities in Unpad. The Rector is also optimistic that this standard will be a strong attraction for S-3 applicants.

Target 2018 Rector also conveyed the target and planning of Unpad in 2018. One aspect of planning in the field of student affairs activity, student activity unit (UKM) will be hold by one faculty. The faculty is then responsible for the achievements of SMEs concerned. “For example, SME Futsal is hold by the Faculty of Cultural Sciences (FIB). That is, all futsal activities at the university level and faculty must be managed by FIB, “said Rector. With this integration, it is hoped that there will be no student activity unit that works individually. “Hopefully SME governance can be shaded by faculty,” said Rector

YOGHURT RESEARCHER: FROM MAINTAINING DIGESTION TO OVERCOME AGING Y ogurt is one of the most popular beverages in the world. Having a distinctive sour taste, this fermented milk product is well consumed because it has many benefits to increase the body’s metabolism. In the Indonesian market, yoghurt is generally made using two types of microbes namely, Streptococcus thermopilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus, whose main benefits for digestion. Interestingly, the function of eating yoghurt is not only limited to digestion. Yoghurt can have a good impact on other health functions. For the professor of Faculty of Animal Husbandry Universitas Padjadjaran Prof. Dr. Lovita Adriani, Ir., M.S., in addition to healthful, yoghurt has benefits to improve the various parameters of blood biochemistry and serves as a natural antibiotic. This is what makes Prof. Lovita is interested in researching yoghurt for nearly 20 years. According to Porf. Lovita, a good and healthy yoghurt will be obtained if the good bacteria content and the balance of the formulation are considered. She paid attention to most of the yoghurt products that circulate in the Indonesian market today generally contain two bacteria. “Two good bacteria in yoghurt actually have produced enough benefits, but not maximal yet.” Lovita when found by Unpad Public Relation in Faculty of Animal Husbandry. The Professor of animal physiology also as biochemistry teacher explained that actually not all microbes are pathogenic (bacteria which causes a disease). There are some microbes that can reduce the population of pathogenic bacteria. Results of several research collaborations in other countries find and conclude that one of pathogenic bacteria’s functions is to prevent colon cancer, reduce symptoms of gastric inflammation (stomach ulcer), enhance immunity and improve metabolism. Based on those facts, she tried to apply the use of non-pathogenic bacteria as a competitor of pathogenic bacteria in her yoghurt product findings.


One that has been applied is by adding

Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus acidophilus and other microbes in the right dosage. Therefore, Prof. Lovita’s yoghurt findings have levels of non-pathogenic bacteria with amount exceeding the terms, i.e. more than 109/ml. The increasing number of reliable non-pathogenic bacteria will reduce the number of pathogenic bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. This will improve the gastrointestinal ecosystem and eventually improve health.

Some researchers explain that yogurt is also a natural antibiotic. The professor born in Pekalongan, July 27th 1954 has used it to prevent sore throat for children. She tried to replace milk consumption with yoghurt to some children. The result shows that children who consume yoghurt regularly more likely to protected from inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Currently, Prof. Lovita and researchers from other several fields of science in Unpad are developing yogurt products that serve as anti-aging. Some researchers explained earlier that the process of aging can be delayed in several ways. One of the safest ways is to consume probiotic yogurt with a right balance. This yoghurt development utilizing fermented milk with a mixture of milk derived from nuts. Nuts are rich in phytoestrogens, or a compound that is structurally similar to estrogen. For women who have reached menopause will have a number of low estrogen content, so that there will be a wide variety of diseases, such as osteoporosis to cell damage that occurs in the cytoplasm and nucleus. The content of phytoestrogens is expected to compensate for the lack of estrogen for women so it will be more fit. Other content in nuts are important in this research is the isoflavones. Lactic acid bacteria have a very important role in improving the digestibility of isoflavones. This increase is due to the activity of enzymes in microbes that can hydrolyze isoflavones into aglycon compounds are easily absorbed by the intestine.

Until now, the research is successful ferment to become aglycon isoflavones. In the next few months, this study will reveal success. Not only for humans, Prof. Lovita also use yogurt to produce chicken meat low in fat and cholesterol. Chickens have been given yogurt with a certain dose was able to reduce cholesterol and fat content of the meat is up to 25%. “When consumed by humans, it means we have to provide healthy food that can be consumed by a group of people who are sensitive to fat and cholesterol,” said Prof. Lovita. Prof. Lovita is also researching the function of yogurt to inhibit the proliferation of Salmonella bacteria in dealing with typhoid. In addition, she is also producing yoghurt in capsule form which useful for people who have sensitive digestion system. Her homemade yoghurt has also been welded by Unpad under the brand “Lovita Unpad”. Prof. Lovita’s interest in yoghurt was started when she was a student at Fapet Unpad in 1973. Its weird and sour taste that time became the initial interest Prof. Lovita towards yoghurt. In 1990s, based on information from the Media, Indonesia was one of the countries which has the fourth highest number of colon cancer sufferer in the world. She began researching about yoghurt. When completing hef doctoral program at the Bandung Institute of Technology, Prof. Lovita’ dissertation managed to produce a significant reduction in the number of pathogenic bacteria in the colon. Aside from producing her independent yoghurt products, her various studies have been published and delivered at various seminars at national and international levels. By becoming one of the businessman in the field of yogurt -besides of her main task as a lecturer, Prof. Lovita hopes her yogurt products can be one of the efforts to improve the health of Indonesian people and prevent them from various diseases.
