He is an inspiring thinker, a valiant freedom fighter, an intellectual with broad and rich thoughts, a person with superior character, and steadfast in keeping his ideals. Therefore, we who are solemn as students, educational staff, and as lecturers at the Universitas Negeri Semarang are ideological descendants who have a moral obligation to actualize their thoughts,” said the Rector of UNNES.

“We all understand that our society is facing serious challenges due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The data shows that the pandemic has broad implications for various fields of life, including the social and economic fields. In such a situation, I hope that the graduates can be present as problem solvers. With your knowledge and superior character, I believe you can carry out that mandate,” said Prof Fathur.
