ACS is a conference that becomes a peak of collaborative programs between the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and higher education institutions.

UM Surabaya has the Anti-Corruption Studies and Democracy Center (PUSAD) to organize and support the program. “We highly support the collaboration between KPK and university. And I expect that the anti-corruption movement can be enhanced by organizing ACS-5,” he said.

Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) hosted the first and second ACS, meanwhile, the third ACS had organized by Universitas Hasanudin (Unhas) and the fourth was located in Universitas Andalas (Unand). By the theme ‘Strengthening the Role of Higher Education Institutions for Corruption Eradication in the Political Sector’, this activity can be followed by the research team from campus research institutions.
