UMY Reinforces Relationship among Staffs through an Exercise Program

Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (UMY) conducted a physical exercise, Olahraga UMY Sehat, for all staffs on Saturday morning (18/8) at Lapangan Bintang of UMY. The exercise was organized under a theme of ‘Sehat Badanku, Semangat Kerjaku’.

Rector of UMY Dr. Ir. Gunawan Budiyanto, M.P.  stated that the exercise aimed to enhance UMY staffs’ performance in working. “It has been proved that healthy people show good working performance. This exercise is also a medium to interweave good relationship among the staffs since it eases them to coordinate if they often meet one another,” he declared.

Gunawan added that the physical exercise had been proposed in the 37th anniversary of UMY, and it would regularly be held as a culture at UMY. “Even though the exercise was officially launched at Family Day of UMY’s 37th anniversary, it can be carried out now,” he told.

Meanwhile, a lecturer of Department of International Relations of UMY Ratih Herningtyas, S.IP., M.A. welcomed the program. “It is great. It can strengthen relationship among lecturers and they can be healthy and joyful,” she expressed. Ratih also supported in order that the program can be conducted frequently. “It is interesting because sometimes we need a non-formal medium which can engage all elements of an organization. This program absolutely drives all staffs to be closer and more solid,” she asserted.
