The transformation of IKIP Jakarta to UNJ has incurred an urgent need for rearrangement of its academic and administration sectors as well as its physical facilities. Regarding its academic sector, several proposals for rearrangements of study programs and sub programs have been introduced that have been based on results of current SWOT analysis of UNJ. Meanwhile, activities have also been performed aiming at rearranging the administrative sectors for better administration procedures that can ensure best practices in management. These include identification of materials and conversion of existing regulations. As to physical facilities, now that all assets of IKIP Jakarta has become that of UNJ, efforts have been made to make the existing facilities meet the minimum requirements of a university. These assets include human resources, land, buildings, and other supporting facilities. Unfortunately, to date the efforts has not accomplished a maximum result due to lacking of academic facilities and the budget constraint that UNJ has.
The qualified human resources and modern physical assets of UNJ is a must condition in the near future in order to accomplish its vision and mission. It is in line with UNJ commitment to reform itself being an entrepreneurial university. To become such university, UNJ has been attempting several reforms i.e. competitive-driven reforms, finance-driven reforms, accountability-driven reforms, and equity-driven reforms. The reforms aim at building UNJ to become a competitive higher education that is able to meet the need of the country for improved quality of education and to meet globalization challenges. Becoming an entrepreneurial university is also an initial step for UNJ to become a chartered university (Badan Hukum Pendidikan abbreviated for BHP).
