The backgrounds of this research were: (1) UGM was the biggest campus in Indonesia in the number of students; it has about 45 thousand students, but that does not go along with the best quality; It is only at 67th rank in Asia. (2) Instead of becoming good examples, some lecturers and administration staffs become the obstruction for UGM to increase its quality. The main was the indiscipline of the lectures. As an example, actually, they should teach at 7 o’clock; since they had another beneficial project, they didn’t come on their schedule and changed it to the other day. The other example is that a certain student had made an appointment to see his lecturer to consult his final assignment, but the lecturer canceled the appointment, so it affects the student’s length of study. (3) Administration staffs were not friendly enough and they had got low productivity.
The objectives of the research were (1) General illustration about lecturers’ discipline towards their schedule, (2) General illustration about administration staffs attitude to students, (3) General illustration about the bureaucracy that does not help students to finish their study as soon as possible.
