The Research and Community Service Institute (LP2M) initially consisted of two independent institutions. Both the institutions are the Research Institute (LP) and the Community Service Institute (LPM). Through the Universitas Hasanuddin Rector’s Decree as the Head of the University Senate No. 2630/H4/0/2010 on 29 June 2010, the two institutions were then integrated into one institution, namely the Research and Community Service Institute (LPPM), Universitas Hasanuddin.
