The online public lecture in collaboration between Universitas Negeri Semarang and KPK (Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi) has been held on Thursday (4/3). It is presented Dr. Wawan Wardiana MT, Deputy of Education and Public Participation of the Corruption Eradication Commission of the Republic Indonesia as a speaker. This event is being held for 3 hours, starting at 09.00 am to 12.00 am and was attended by around 900 participants through a zoom meeting.
This event has been opened directly by the Rector of Universitas Negeri Semarang, Prof. Dr. Fathur Rokhman, M.Hum. He said that UNNES also provides coaching for the character values of anti-corruption education which is integrated in learning and through integrated student coaching. UNNES is committed continually to be a corruption-free area campus and a clean and serving bureaucratic area, a zone of integrity. This is proven by UNNES, in financial management UNNES has won WTP for 10 consecutive years, UNNES also won the first best in the 2020 Budget Work Value by the Ministry of Education and Culture.
In the public lecture, Dr. Wawan emphasized that higher education institutions must become the center of an academic movement to eradicate corruption and encourage the eradication of corruption both locally and nationally.
“Through the Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi approach, we jointly create anti-corruption education, anti-corruption research, and anti-corruption service,” he said.
Anti-corruption education can be through the integration of courses, anti-corruption research can be through anti-corruption theses, and public service can be done through anti-corruption thematic KKN.
In addition, the KPK encourages universities and students to build integrity through campus policies. As has been done by several universities in Indonesia, if an alumni is caught in a corruption case, then officially their degree and diploma will be revoked. Hence, it is hoped that the role of academics and universities as centers of innovation and research, experts’ center, anti-corruption teaching centers, and anti-corruption movement centers can run as expected and be beneficial to society and the country.
