The institutional development is also accompanied by the submission of new OTK proposals that are more functional, strategic, and relevant. The institutional development is also inherent in strengthening the nomenclature of art and design science by proposing additional fields of creative media science and digital art governance. This is implemented through the new majors proposal, namely: animation, product design, theater, digital art management, fine arts education, and masters in arts education. The establishment of this new study program will enhance the existing of twelve (12) undergraduate/Diploma majors, namely Dance arts, Karawitan arts, Puppetry arts, Performing Arts Education, Music, Fine Arts, Crafts, Interior Design, Visual Communication Design, Photography, Fashion Design, as well as Film and TV Production, following the complement of the three (3) Postgraduate majors, namely: Master of Arts, Master of Design, and Doctor of Arts.

A doctoral dissertation research competition scheme has begun, the publication of reputable international scientific journals, the output of Intellectual Property, and the output of national books. This competition scheme, in addition to touch up a competitive attitude, also directly responds to the Main Performance Indicators (IKU)

Related to the services for strengthening the human resources quality, the Widya Kerti Mahardika Intellectual Property Center of ISI Denpasar has been established in collaboration with the Bali Province Regional Law and Human Rights Office. ISI Denpasar proposals as a Pakerti and AA certification agency has also been approved by the Ministry of Education and Culture, so that this teaching competency certification service can be carried out independently, and also being well prepared to provide services to lecturers from other universities.

The strategic actualization pattern is performed with a publications arrangement policy to produce more quality and substantive content, namely socialization on mainstreaming the performance achievements that are oriented towards the strengthening and advancing on education, research, and community service in all forms, both independently or in a collaboration with partnerships. The strategic actualization scheme is also manifested in the institutionalization of the Tri Dharma Higher Education dissemination medium on a national and international scale, which is consistent, progressive, in good quality with a reputable and sustainable pattern. The Bali Padma Bhuwana International Festival is dedicated as a medium for international dissemination; and Bali Sangga Dwipantara as a national scale dissemination area. The pattern of strategic actualization is also carried out by setting the ISI Denpasar Website professionally with quality standards for managing quality higher education websites.

Hopefully, by setting the content, layout, appearance, and the use of three languages (Bali, Indonesian, and English) the existence of the ISI Denpasar Website is not only functional as an appliance for digital services, but also as an institutional representation of the ISI Denpasar character and identity.
Congratulations on the launch of the ISI Denpasar Trilingual Website.
