Greetings from UKDW,

We are grateful and proud that Universitas Kristen Duta Wacana (UKDW) has advanced and emerged into one of the best private universities in Indonesia which achieved “A” accreditation by BAN-PT. UKDW’s noble vision is “to be an excellent and trustworthy Christian university to deliver independent professional generation for the pluralistic world based on love”. UKDW campus has been home to the young generations who dream and strive for whole person education, where UKDW academia do not only seek knowledge but also hone life skills. It is simply not enough for students to excel only academically as spiritual and emotional intelligence are needed in this ever-changing world. 

The life changing learning process is designed to instill Duta Wacana core values that are integrated and upheld together: obedience to GOD, walking in integrity, striving for excellence, and service to the world. These four fundamental values are not only relevant while studying at UKDW but also applicable as a guide to living a life once the students work according to their professions. 

Since its inception in 1906 as a small seminary school delivering priests for local churches, UKDW has sown its vision of education and nurture it to this very day. As a higher education institution, UKDW has actively contributed to the Indonesian education sector for more than 57 years, and actively take part in addressing the problems and challenges faced by the country for improving welfare, justice, and peace in diversity. 

We are proud to be part of a community that yearn to learn various knowledge and technology as well as learn about oneself, respecting the diversity, working in teams, and preparing for a brighter future.  

We are proud to be DUTA WACANAthe Messenger of the God’s Word. SORBUM!
