LP2M IAIN: REAL WORK COLLEGE SUCCESS

Palu, 27/3 - Chair of the Institute for Research and Community Service (LP2M) of the State Islamic Institute (IAIN) of Palu, Central Sulawesi, Prof. Dr. Asy'ari reported the implementation of real work (KKN) in 2019 for a full month since February 25 - 25 March 2019.

"While at the KKN location, we do not receive reports of unpleasant behavior and actions, either from the community, the village government or fellow students," said Prof. Asy'ari, in Palu on Wednesday.

The implementation of Community Service Program took place in 6 sub-districts for Parigi Moutong Regency followed by 250 students, Biromaru District for Sigi Regency and on the IAIN Palu campus, with a total of 397 students.

Asy'ari said that students had returned from the KKN location on March 25, 2019. The return was carried out simultaneously.

"This pickup is carried out in each sub-district, and automatically involves the sub-district government," Asy'ari said.

He stated, before going down to the KKN location, the committee and the LP2M party had emphasized to students to carry out 80 percent of non-physical activities and 20 percent physically.

The 80 percent of non-physical activities, he explained, included socio-religious activities, moral formation, recitation, coaching in the madrasyah, Qur'an recitations, orphanages, houses of worship.

This non-physical activity, he said, as a form of service in the community. Therefore, in that service, ethics or morals must be prioritized.

He said, KKN participants must highlight Islam rahmatan lilalaamin, or Islam that can join hands or be friends with any religion.

"Show me the identity of the IAIN Palu, that IAIN Palu students can play a role in uniting the ummah, building brotherhood among humans," he said.
