Times Higher Education’s Impact Rankings showed three Indonesian universities -- Universitas Indonesia (UI), Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), and IPB University -- placed among the world′s top 100 universities.

Acting Director General of Higher Education in the Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs, Professor Nizam, stated that the achievement is a matter of pride for the entire nation, as UI ranked 47th, UGM was placed 72nd, and IPB University took the 77th position.

"We are immensely proud of this achievement since it demonstrates that Indonesian universities have played a significant role in sustainability development. They are not merely the "ivory tower" but indeed the "water tower" that distributes water to people to use," Nizam noted in a statement issued on Friday.

"Indonesian universities′ dedication toward the community has been recognized by the international community," he pointed out.

Some 766 universities across the globe joined THE Impact Rankings this year.

While the three universities are placed in the top 100, six other colleges also listed comprise Universitas Padjajaran (Unpad) in the top 101-200; Universitas Brawijaya (UB), 201-300; and Universitas Airlangga (Unair), 301-400.

Furthermore, Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) was placed in the top 301-400; Diponegoro University (Undip), 301-400; and Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS), 401-600.

Nizam has pinned high hopes on the universities to contribute more towards developing the country.

"During this COVID-19 pandemic, we also expect Indonesian universities to intensify their role and contribution in prevention to contain the disease," he affirmed.
