BANDUNG, - In an effort to introduce and improve the anti-corruption movement within universities, the ITB Directorate of Education collaborated with KPK (Corruption Eradication Commission) to hold a workshop educating on anti-corruption. The workshop was held at the ITB East Campus Center Auditorium on May 8-9, 2023.

The activity was aimed towards lecturers who teach courses related to anti-corruption and other general matters, as well as those who are part of the Integrity Task Force from their respective faculties or schools.

The Anti-Corruption workshop was attended by the ITB Director of Education, Dr. techn. Ir. Arief Hariyanto, and KPK Deputy of Education and Community Participation, Dr. Ir. Wawan Wardiana, M.T.

During the workshop, the Director of the KPK Education Network, Ir. Aida Ratna Zulaiha explained the strategies and directions of policies regarding education about anti-corruption. The following material taught was the competencies needed by ITB to eliminate corruption, as discussed by Prof. Dr. Ir. Bambang Anggoro Soedjarno P., M.T., Dr. Ir. Toto Hardianto, and Dr. Miranti Indar Mandasari, S.T., M.H.

The participants' enthusiasm heightened on the second day of the workshop. Continuing with the topic “Anti-Corruption Movement in Higher Education with Anti-Corruption Activists of Unpad”, participants were tasked to scrutinize the Anti-Corruption Education Book for Universities by the authors Prof. Nanang T. Puspito, and Dr. Aryo P. Wibowo. The session ended with Dr. Miranti Indar Mandasari, S.T., M.T. (Coordinator of KU 4079 Anti-Corruption Education), who explained about strengthening anti-corruption education at ITB.

According to Raja Parmonangan Manurung (Mining Engineering, 2021), as the moderator and representative of the ITB Campus Ambassador, the workshop was a very valuable experience. "It is rare to have a training workshop with an anti-corruption theme. Workshops like this must be more encouraged not only in universities, but also in schools so that more people are aware that corruption is a heinous crime.”

Raja hoped that people would be more aware of corruption as a crime with impacts that are not directly felt; it is unlike theft in which people immediately realize their money is gone. “Let us apply anti-corruption principles from now on, starting with anti-corruption measures like being honest in exams, not doing gratuities and many other simple things.”
