Six hundred thirty-eight students in Clustering KKN were sent to 44 different villages. The other seventeen students followed Independent KKN in their regions.
The Committee Chief for KKN, Rohman Dijaya MKom prompted the students in this socialization. According to him, the students should consider the main points in conducting KKN. One of them is to keep coordinating with their partners in KKN. “Currently, UMSIDA collaborates with ‘Aisyiyah Branch and Local Board to arrange the KKN programs. It aims to analyze the partnership requirements with ‘The Aisyiyah branch and the local board to prioritize problems. In KKN implementation, the students also have to be independent and precede their etiquette in maintaining the good name of UMSIDA,” he said.  CHERD / UMSIDA
