History[edit]

The name Mulawarman was taken from the king Mulawarman Nala Dewa of the Kutai Kingdom in 4th century, historically the earliest kingdom in Indonesia, located in East Kalimantan.

Beginnings[edit]

On June 6, 1962 the Governor of East Kalimantan Province, Aji Pangeran Tumenggung Pranoto, founded Perguruan Tinggi Mulawarman (Mulawarman College), located in Samarinda.[4] Then the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture approved the establishment as Universitas Mulawarman on September 28, 1962[5] and officially confirmed by the President on April 23, 1963.[6] The date of September 27, 1962 was set as the date of the founding of the Universitas Mulawarman.[2]

At first the Universitas Mulawarman has four faculties: Faculty of State and Trade Administration, Faculty of Agriculture, Faculty of Forestry and Faculty of Mining in Balikpapan. Only the Faculty of State and Trade Administration can be started at the beginning of the opening in 1962, while Faculty of Agriculture followed in 1964. However, in 1966, the Faculty of State and Trade Administration was split into two faculties: Faculty of Social and Political Sciences and Faculty of Economics.[2]

1970s-1980s[edit]

Eventually, due to difficulty to find teaching staff, the Faculty of Mining, in Balikpapan, was closed in 1970. In 1978, the Samarinda Teaching and Education Sciences Institute was integrated into Universitas Mulawarman as the Faculty of Teaching and Education Sciences on March 20.[7] Thus since September 7, 1982, there were 5 faculties in Universitas Mulawarman:[8] Faculty of Agriculture, Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Forestry, Faculty of Teaching and Education Sciences, and Faculty of Social and Political Sciences.[2]

In December 3, 1985 Universitas Mulawarman Polytechnic was established.[9]

1990s-2000s[edit]

Since the 1990s, Universitas Mulawarman established several new faculties:[2] Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences in 1996,[10][11] Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences in 2001,[12] Faculty of Medicine in 2001,[13] Faculty of Law in 2005,[14] Faculty of Public Health in 2005,[15] Faculty of Engineering in 2007,[16] Faculty of Pharmacy in 2008,[17][18] and Faculty of Cultural Studies in 2009.[19]

In April 28, 1997, Universitas Mulawarman Polytechnic was formed into Samarinda State Polytechnic, separated from Universitas Mulawarman.[20]
