Universitas PGRI Madiun

Pioneering Period

A Brief History of Universitas PGRI Madiun

  1. Pioneer Period

The establishment of IKIP PGRI MADIUN cannot be separated from the history of higher education in Madiun. In the 1960s, Malang State IKIP opened a branch in Madiun which was known as Malang State IKIP Madiun Branch. Malang State IKIP Madiun Branch is developing quite well, but due to some reasons, in 1968 it was closed. Some of the lecturers returned to Malang and some chose to stay in Madiun.

The lecturers of the Malang State IKIP who chose to stay in Madiun in Madiun took the initiative to establish a university in Madiun, namely Drs. Mudjiono and Drs. R. Soekarno. In order to make it happen, he both carried out socialization and approaches to community leaders and local government officials. Most of the people of the Madiun area gave a positive response, as well as the Madiun Municipal Government. In order to make the formation of the higher education more effective, a foundation was formed to protect it or as an umbrella. In 1969 the initiators succeeded in establishing a foundation called YAPPERTIM (Madiun Higher Education Foundation). The initiators who formed YAPPERTIM, namely: Drs. Mujiono (Former Lecturer of Malang State IKIP Madiun Branch), Drs. R. Soekarman (Former Dean of Coordinator of IKIP Negeri Malang Madiun Branch), Drs. Imam Sunarji (Madiun Mayor), Muhammad Dimyati, and Major Sutoyo (Former Chaldean of Madiun). After the foundation was formed, then the initiators established the Madiun Regional IKIP in 1969 and controlled it collectively

In its first year, the Madiun IKIP succeeded in opening 3 study programs, namely: General Education (PU), Indonesian Language, and Exact Science. The number of students for the first year is 76 students from Madiun and its surroundings. Lectures are held in the afternoon and use schools in the Municipality of Madiun. This was done because the Madiun Regional IKIP does not yet have a building and its facilities are still limited. So that the place of study moves depending on the school that you want to collaborate with. The school that was first used, namely SMP Negeri 6, then moved to SMA Negeri 3 which is now used by SMP Negeri 2, the regional library building which is now Plaza Sri Ratu.

Other problems faced by the Madiun Regional IKIP are limited development funds, shortage of teaching and administrative staff, not having adequate lecture halls, and not getting a clear status. Thanks to the hard work and cohesiveness of the managers and assistance from the local government and schools, the Madiun Regional IKIP was able to survive.

As a tertiary institution, status is something that must be owned as a symbol of the legality of its authorities, rights and obligations so that the community gives confidence to the community of the institution. This is in line with the policy of the Government of the Republic of Indonesia which states that private universities that already have registered status are allowed to hold their own lectures. While the state exam is in the scope of similar majors that have recognized or equal status. For this reason, YAPERTIM is fighting for status. One of his efforts was to integrate himself with IKIP Sarmidi Mangunsarkoro based in Malang and its name changed to IKIP Sarmidi Mangunsarkoro (1974) and as its leader: Rector I Drs. Mujiono, Rector II R. Soekarman, and Rector III Drs. Soeparno

The efforts of Sarmidi Mangunsarkoro IKIP have not yet produced the expected status and then the Madiun Regional IKIP is led to the Surabaya State IKIP, especially in the implementation of the state exam. In 1975 IKIP Sarmidi Mangunsarkoro in Madiun by YAPPERTIM was handed over to the VIII PGRI East Java Regional Management and fostered by the VIII PGRI East Java Regional Higher Education Trustees Foundation. The name of IKIP Sarmidi Mangunsarkoro in Madiun, starting on June 5, 1975, was changed and given the name IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun. The date of the change and determination of the name mentioned above by the manager of the IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun was set as the anniversary of the IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun. Thanks to the struggle of the Regional Managers VIII PGRI East Java, with the Letter of Kopertis Region VII dated May 17, 1976 No. 85/I/1976, starting on 17 May 1976 IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun received Registered Status.

The leaders of IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun are as follows: (1) Coordinator dean: Drs. Soeparno; (2) assistant dean of coordinator I: Saiman, BA., (3) assistant dean of coordinator II: Soesilo Soedharman, BA., (4) assistant dean of coordinator III: DA. Hutahean, BA.

With a registered status, the IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun has increasingly received the attention and trust of the people of Madiun and its surroundings. It is shown from the opening of new majors and the increasing public interest. There are 5 majors, namely: General Education, Indonesian Language Education, Exact Science, History and Fine Arts. In addition, IKIP PGRI Madiun opened classes in several places outside Madiun City, namely: Maospati Magetan for the Department of Fine Arts, Karangjati and Nguter Ngawi for the Department of History Education, Caruban Mejayan Madiun for the Department of General Education (PU) and the Department of Indonesian Language.

IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun does not yet have complete resources. The leadership of the faculty is still concurrently with the central leadership. The activities are coordinated by the coordinating dean who is equivalent to the current rector. The teaching staff is recruited from some former lecturers of the Malang State IKIP Madiun Branch and the drawback is that they take from high school teachers who are civil servants who have a baccalaureate certificate, so that many teachers from SMAN3 are lecturers at the regional IKIP in Madiun, while the number of employees is still very small. caused by financial shortages so that they are not able to pay in full. This condition was able to be overcome slowly by receiving financial assistance from donors as well as from the local government, in addition to It is also seeking loan money as capital for its development, such as buying land and building the first lecture building, which is now campus 1 of IKIP PGRI Madiun Jalan Setiiabudi 85 (East wing building of Campus 1 of IKIP PGRI Madiun). At that time only able to build 1 meeting room, 4 classrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Drs. Soeparno as the Coordinator Dean of IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun in June 1983 died. To fill the position of Coordinator Dean, a deliberation was conducted and the result was elected Drs. J. Soetjarjo (Chairman of the Department of Economics). Apart from competence reasons, Drs. J. Soetjarjo is an official who already has a bachelor's degree. Drs. J. Soetjarjo served as dean of coordinator from June 1983 to August 31, 1985

The existence of IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun could not last long, because in 1985 there was a policy change from the government, that every private university must have its own foundation, so that areas in East Java such as Nganjuk, Kediri, Blitar, Surabaya, Many Tuban, Jember, Banyuwangi, Situbondo have established their own foundations, including the regional IKIP in Madiun to become YPLP PT, namely the Foundation for Higher Education Institutions. The legality of YPLP PT PGRI Madiun City is stated in the Notary Deed of R.N. Sinulingga, S.H. on May 13, 1985 No 103 and reports directly to the Central PGRI Educational Institution Trustees Foundation in Jakarta.

The YPLP PT PGRI Madiun in its development underwent a reorganization of its management and name, namely on September 2, 2010 it became PPLP PT PGRI (Association of Trustees of Higher Education Institutions, Indonesian Teachers Association). This change was ratified in the Notary Deed No. 6 Asni Arpan, S.H.


2.Development Period IKIP PGRI Madiun

IKIP PGRI East Java in Madiun changed its name to IKIP PGRI Madiun. The development of IKIP PGRI Madiun can be explained in the periodization of the rectors' leadership. The rectors in question are:


  1. Drs. J. Soetjarjo, M.Pd. (1985-1999)

At the time of Drs. J. Soetjarjo, M.Pd., the Chancellor was assisted by the Vice Chancellors, namely Drs. Saiman (PR1), Drs. Soesilo Soedharman (PR2), and Drs. DA. Hutahean (PR3). In 1991 Drs. DA. Hutahean died and was replaced by Drs. Imam Sujudi. IKIP PGRI Madiun continues to make improvements in various ways, including: (1) development of facilities and infrastructure; (2) faculty development and addition of departments; (3) completion of lectures on time for all programs, both baccalaureate, undergraduate and diploma; and (4) promotion to candidates students, more and more students and alumni are accepted as civil servants.

With the increasing number of students, IKIP PGRI Madiun received funds to purchase assets in the form of land and build office buildings and other infrastructure. The lectures, which were initially scattered in various places, were later merged into one on the campus of Jalan Setiabudi No. 85 and SDN Kanigoro. The campus building can be built on three floors (campus 1 is now, the South, East, and West sections are 3 floors. While the northern part is 2 floors).

Departments in order to meet the applicable standards, the Chancellor Drs. J. Soetjarjo, M.Pd. encourage and facilitate the improvement of its status and harmonize the name of the department with the applicable provisions. In the late 1980s and early 1990s the status of the majors was as follows:

  1. Faculty of Science Education
    1. Curriculum and Educational Technology  : Registered
    2. PPB : Registered
  2. Faculty of Language and Arts Education (FPBS)
    1. Indonesian Language and Literature Education: Recognized
    2. English Language Education : Registered
  3. Faculty of Social Science Education
    1. History Education : Recognized
    2. PDU / Ekkop: Recognized
    3. PMP Education : Registered
    4. Grography Education : Registered
  4. Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science
    1. Mathematis Education : Recognized
    2. Bilogy Education : Registered
    3. Physic Education : Registered
  5. Faculty of Vocational Engineering Education
    1. Electrical Engineering Education: Registered
    2. Building Engineering Education: Registered

In 1991 the department underwent restructuring and deletion. The majors removed were Educational Curriculum and Technology (KTP), Geography Education, and Building Engineering Education.

Along with very fundamental changes in the world of higher education in Indonesia caused by the development of science and technology and changes in public expectations of the role of universities in pioneering the future of the nation and state, universities are required to be able to prove high quality supported by good accountability. . Therefore, in 1994 the government in this case the Minister of Education and Culture held a national university accreditation program implemented by the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education (BAN-PT). As a manifestation of this BAN-PT program, in 1996 IKIP PGRI Madiun sent Drs. V. Teguh Suharto and Drs. Muhammad Hanif attended a workshop on the preparation of an Accreditation Form in Surabaya which organized by Kopertis Region VII East Java and BAN-PT Depdikbud. Drs. V. Teguh Suharto and Drs. Muhammad Hanif then created, developed, and disseminated the program to functionaries.

In 1997 the accreditation forms for the majors were completed and then submitted to BAN-PT. The first accreditation form was directly delivered to the BAN-PT office by Drs. H. Saiman, MM (Vice Chancellor 1) and Drs. Muhammad Hanif. After the visitation, the results were accredited and some were not. Accredited study programs with a C grade are Guidance & Counseling, Cooperative Economics Education, Accounting Education, Pancasila and Kn Education, History Education, Indonesian Language and Literature Education, English Education, and Mathematics Education. While those who are not accredited with a D score are Physics Education, Biology Education, and Electrical Engineering Education.

IKIP PGRI Madiun under the leadership of Drs. J. Soetjarjo in addition to experiencing progress as described above, also experienced a decline. From 1992/1993 to 1995/1996 the number of students who registered was reduced, and there were even a number of majors that had no interest so they were closed, namely: Public Works, KTP, Geography Education, and Building Engineering Education.


  1. Drs. H. Saiman, MM. (1998- 2006)

1) Period I(1998-2002)

Parji, carry out a comprehensive policy, both internally and externally. Success can be seen from the number of students who continue to increase, the internal conditions are conducive and under control. Study programs are motivated and facilitated to achieve better accreditation scores and the results are quite encouraging. Most of the study programs have an increase in their accreditation value.

2) Period II (2003-2006)

In the second period, Drs. H. Saiman, MM with PR 1 Drs. Satrijo Budi Wibowo, MM, PR 2 Dra. CA Sabekti, MM, and PR 3 Drs. Parji, M.Pd., continues the program on academic and non-academic issues. Academic activities are increasingly programmed and carried out well. The BAN PT accreditation instrument is increasingly comprehensive in all managerial aspects of higher education, so that study programs are increasingly gaining in achievement compared to the initial period of their leadership. The majority of study programs are accredited with a B grade, namely Guidance & Counseling, Cooperative Economics Education, Accounting Education, Education. Pancasila & Kn, History Education, Indonesian Language and Literature Education, English Education, Mathematics Education, Biology Education. Meanwhile, the study programs with C accreditation are Physics Education and Electrical Engineering Education.

The image of IKIP PGRI Madiun as a healthy and quality university is getting better so that people put their trust. It can be seen from the number of students from year to year has increased. The increase in the number of students is also directly proportional to the welfare of lecturers and employees. There are several programs implemented related to improving the welfare of lecturers and employees which can be seen from the increase in basic salary, allowances and also other additions. This is done so that employees are comfortable and at home and more productive to work and develop themselves.
