Rector of the State Islamic Institute (IAIN) Palu, Central Sulawesi, Prof. Dr. H Sagaf S Pettalongi, M.Pd said that the bachelor and master from the university were equipped with four intelligences.
"As graduates of the Palu State Islamic Institute (IAIN), you have been equipped with adequate knowledge and skills and provision of life. With four intelligences," he said at IAIN Palu graduation ceremony in Palu on Wednesday.
The four intelligences are, spiritual, intellectual, social, and emotional intelligence. With these four intelligences, Prof. Sagaf Pettalongi believes that the alumni can immediately integrate themselves with the environment, utilize and create opportunities, and be able to compete in a healthy and sporty manner.
"Hopefully the new scholars can do their best for themselves and their families, society, nation and state and religion," said the Deputy Chairman of the Central Sulawesi MUI.
The Professor in Education Management reminded that alumni of IAIN have a far greater moral responsibility than alumni of other public universities. That is because the identity of "Islam" attached to this institution is like a clean white paper, so that the slightest stain that is etched on it will be clearly seen by the public. The sanctity of the title achieved by great sacrifice, should not be tainted with behavior that is contrary to Islamic values.
"As part of the IAIN Palu extended family, the graduates are expected to be able to make a positive contribution to the development of this institution in the future. You will become one of the connecting media between the IAIN Palu and the community, who can later provide ideas valuable ideas for the development of this institution in accordance with the dynamics of social development.
