The rays of the sun and the golden kartika (five-angle star) represent UGM's standing as a Pancasila University; an Indonesian national science and cultural center for higher education founded on Pancasila that promotes science, reality, loftiness, and righteousness.
The center of the Symbol is a surya binolong (a sun with a hole). The word surya (sun) symbolizes "one" while the word binolong symbolizes "nine", and each ray of the sun consists of nineteen beams. Hence "19" was the date on which the University was founded.
Surrounding the hole, at the center of the sun, are two circles arranged as twin suns inside the five rays that constitute the kartika. The kartika symbolizes "one" while the twin suns symbolize "two", hence "12", December, the month in which the University was founded.
The five songkoks (official hats of military commanders) and five spears reflect the University' s struggle and the heroic nature that keeps the University prepared and alert. All the songkoks and spears are penetrated and absorbed by Pancasila; this reflects the nature of the University as a monument to the national struggle.
The white colour represents holiness and purity. That the golden colour surrounds the white colour symbolizes a sengkalan memet; a concept that implicitly concludes the relationship between the white colour and the golden colour. The concept reads "murnining suci margining kanyatan" (purity and holiness are the path of reality). The word murni symbolizes "nine", suci "four", marga "nine", kanyatan "one"; hence from the back they read "1949", the year in which the University was founded.
UGM was the first state university in the Indonesia. First-time established as Universiteit Negeri Gadjah Mada (UNGM) when the age of the Republic of Indonesia was just 3 years old and when the Netherlands wanted to regain control of the Republic. At that time, the capital of the Republic of Indonesia had moved from Jakarta to Jogjakarta.
In conditions like this, UNGM was established through Government Regulation (PP) No. 23 of 1949 regarding the Merger Colleges to a University. Despite these regulations dated 16 December 1949, the UNGM's inauguration took place on 19 December 1949. 19 December was intentionally chosen to eliminate the grief caused by the invasion of the city of Yogyakarta; a year to that date previously. In addition to this, it was to show the world that exactly a year after the Netherlands returned to Indonesia (19 December 1948), the Government of Indonesia would be able to establish a nationwide university.
When founded, UGM had 6 faculties: the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy, the Faculty of Law, Social and Political Sciences, the Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Letters, Pedagogy and Philosophy, the Faculty of Agriculture, and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
From 1952 until 1972, the Faculty of Medicine was split into two faculties, the Surabaya branch of the Faculty of Law, Social, and Political Sciences was established, and the Faculty of Education and Teacher Training was integrated into IKIP Yogyakarta (now Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta [UNY]).
During its initial years the university used the buildings and other facilities belonging to the Kraton of Yogyakarta (Sultan Hamengkubuwono IX's palace). UGM gradually established a campus of its own in Bulaksumur on the northern side of Yogyakarta. The university now occupies an area of three square kilometres.
The rector of the university is Professor Pratikno, a political scientist, elected on 22 March 2012 for a five-year term ending in 2017.
UGM has long been known by the public as a university with a strong tradition in serving the nation and state. UGM thoughts were known to excel on the world stage in synergy-based solutions offering cutting-edge science with local knowledge on any problems of the nation and humanity. This tradition is embodied by all components of the university through scientific development that holds fast to the values of the UGM's and strongly orientates on populist issues, multiculturalism, and the notion of lifelong learning.
