History       

          On 18 October 1954, Prof. Mr. Muhammad Yamin, the former minister of Education and Culture, officially inaugurated Perguruan Tinggi Pendidikan Guru (PTPG Malang), or Teacher Education College. The historical event marked the genesis of the present-day State University of Malang (UM), one of the oldest university in Indonesia. The nascent institution started with 5 departments that housed 127 students and 37 lecturers. Prof Sutan Adam Bachtiar was appointed the first rector of PTPG Malang.

          The founding of another university in East Java, Unair (Universitas Airlangga) on November 10 1954, brought about some important  consequences to the status of PTPG Malang. Since then PTPG Malang merged with Unair and become of one of the university’s four faculties. It was not until four years later that the status change was officially declared, whereby, PTPG Malang became Faculty of teacher Training and Education of Airlangga University (fakultas Keguruan dan Ilmu Pendidikan, FKIP-Unair). In 1963, FKIP Unair was converted into an independent institution, namely Institute of Teacher Training and Education ( Institut Keguruan dan Ilmu Pendidikan Malang or better known as IKIP Malang)

          The year 1999 marked yet another important change to the institution’s status, where IKIP Malang obtained a greater mandate and was transformed into Malang State University (Universitas Negeri Malang). Presently, UM has eight faculties and one Post-Graduate: Faculty of Education, Faculty of Letters, Faculty of Mathematics and Science, Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Sport Science, Faculty of Social Science, Faculty of Educational Phsycology and Post Graduate.
