Since last year 2012, University of Muhammadiyah Malang has been included in 25 chosen universities to cooperate with USAID-Higher Education Leadership and Management Project (HELM). HELM is aimed to support and continue a reformation of Indonesia Higher Education by focusing on the increase of university management (HEI). Through the collaboration with Directorate of Higher Education (Dikti), HELM will improve four core managements: (1) General administration and leadership; (2) Financial management; (3) Quality assurances; and (4) Collaboration with external stakeholders. One realization from this program might be seen in Action Research Program (ARP). The first step of this ARP program was sending two representatives from each university to attend various workshops held in Philippine and Thailand. It was held in last October and November 2012.

It was all sponsored by USAID-funded HELM Program and Chemonics International.
