“Students who work are expected to be Untar ambassadors by spreading positive things,” said the Rector.

Dr. Rita in her presentation highlighted the important role of students as role models and agents of change. One of the expected outputs is involvement in student activities as a positive step to protect the younger generation from negative impacts.

According to Dr. Rita, there are four educational sins that need to be avoided, namely bullying, sexual violence, intolerance, and corruption. She said students can play a role as agents of change by providing information and reporting the four educational sins that occur, as well as providing support for victims.

Dr. Rita further emphasized the need for integrated handling involving various parties in the task force for handling and preventing acts of sexual violence.

In particular, Dr. Rita invited students to understand diversity as a step to prevent intolerance. Students are also expected to carry out anti-corruption actions through social campaigns, seminars, films, cultural festivals, and workshops.

On the other hand, the Rector discussed the role of the younger generation in carrying out service to the profession after they graduate in order to avoid the four sins of education. From the legal side, the Vice Rector discussed the study of the legal basis in avoiding educational sins by fostering awareness of state defense.
