Bandung, 15 February 2023 – The SEAMEO Regional Center for Early Childhood Care Education and Parenting (CECCEP) had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indonesian University of Education (UPI) at the Isola Building, Bumi Siliwangi, UPI Campus. Prof. Vina Adriany, Director of SEAMEO CECCEP, representing SEAMEO CECCEP signed the document along with Prof. Dr. M. Solehuddin, M.Pd., MA, Rector of UPI.
The signing of the MoU between SEAMEO CECCEP and the UPI was expected to follow-up on a series of programs that will be established with some detailed discussions later. Prof. Vina Adriany hopes this MoU will open up opportunities for UPI to become affiliates members at SEAMEO, so that UPI's branding will be increasingly recognized at the regional and international level. In line with that, the Rector of UPI also requested that all study programs enter into a cooperation agreement with SEAMEO CECCEP and make planned programs.
The signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was attended by the Deputy Rector, the dean of the faculty of education, the UPI Campus Directors, and the Heads of the Early Childhood Education Department. The collaboration was a potential act that has strategic value in supporting the achievement of the vision and mission.
This collaboration will later take the form of a series of programs for conducting research, developing the capacity of human resources, and developing educational theory and practice as well as other disciplines that are innovative and rooted in local wisdom, in line with the vision and mission of the Indonesian University of Education, "concluded Prof. Dr. M.
