Forging Futures, Honoring Heritage

The establishment of Hasanuddin University officially began in 1956. However, its roots trace back to the city of Makassar in 1947 when the Faculty of Economics, a branch of the Faculty of Economics at the University of Indonesia (UI) Jakarta, was established by the decision of Lieutenant General Governor of the Dutch East Indies, Number 127 dated July 23, 1947. Due to prolonged uncertainty and chaos in Makassar and its surroundings, the faculty, led by Drs L.A. Enthoven (Director), was suspended. It was later reopened as a branch of the Faculty of Economics UI on October 7, 1953, under the leadership of Prof. Drs. G.H.M. Riekerk. The Faculty of Economics truly became the precursor of Hasanuddin University after being led by acting chairman Prof. Drs. Wolhoff and secretary Drs. Muhammad Baga from September 1, 1956, until the official establishment of Hasanuddin University on September 10, 1956.
