Prof. Dr. Pratikno, M.Soc.Sc., was elected Rector of Universitas Gadjah Mada for the period 2012-2017. After garnering the highest number of votes in the election, Pratikno expressed his appreciation for the trust given to him by the Board of Trustees who had elected him. He likewise extended his gratitude to the students who supported the election.

The former Dean of Faculty of Social and Political Sciences promised to monitor the democratization process in the university and work with the academic community in determining a policy and resolving a problem together. “A Rector would have no meaning if he cannot work in synergy with others,” he said.

Director General for Higher Learning, Djoko Santoso, representing the Minister for Education and Culture congratulated Pratikno and gave him the Minister’s message to carry out and uphold the mandate of UGM well. 

“Universitas Gadjah Mada is a very special university for Indonesia. It has special significance in the Indonesian history of leadership since the beginning and until now,” Santoso said.
Pratikno gained his bachelor’s degree in Government Studies from UGM (1985), and was later accepted as lecturer at his Faculty. With his UGM affiliation, he was able to finish his master’s degree in development administration from University of Birmingham, UK (1991), and his doctorate from Flinders University, Australia (1997).
