Student Community Service

Broadening awareness, empowering contribution, and strengthening connections to the wider community

Student Community Service has become a compulsory course for our undergraduate students since 1971. Every year we dispatch around 7500 students to rural areas throughout Indonesia to live with the community for 7 to 8 weeks.

This program is designed to solve problems facing the community through a multidisciplinary approach and local community empowerment. Learn more about this program.
