World Class Professor Program
The World Class Professor (WCP) program is a research project aimed to strengthen cooperation between institutions and to promote the creation of a global satellite research center initiated by the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education. The WCP program invited some professors from top rank universities to be visiting professors in Indonesian Universities. This program, importantly gives an opportunity for Indonesian researchers to visit the home universities of the visiting professors through an exchange program. This visit is also aimed to foster Indonesian researchers to learn and exchange knowledge to increase the quality of publications in International journals through joint publications and research.
As a part of the WCP program, the Center for Southeast Asian Social Studies (CESASS) of Gadjah Mada University (Yogyakarta) collaborates with the Center for coastal disaster Mitigation and rehabilitation studies (PKMBRP), Diponegoro University (Semarang), and the Center for Tsunami and Disaster Mitigation Studies, Syiah Kuala University (Aceh). The three research centers gather as a WCP consortium to conduct some researches on the issue of “Ecological Communication in Maritime Disaster Management in Southeast Asia”. The WCP Program started in August 2017.
