Welcome to our Community Engagement for Development (CED) 2020 at Widya Mandala Catholic University Surabaya, Indonesia!
This program is inspired by the vision of the Faculty of Business: “To be the leading Faculty of Business in Indonesia by 2025 that produces business professionals with managerial, technical, and ethical capabilities to solve business and society-related problems.”
It comes to my mind, what will be a better way to educate the millennials? How to better prepare them in facing the future challenges? Then I remember an old saying of Confucius: “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand”. Yes, service learning is the right answer to those questions.
I believe that this program, which is embedded with service learning, social entrepreneurship, and cross-cultural living approaches, will be a unique learning opportunity, not only for our students but also for students of our partner institutions.
This info sheet includes the detail information of the program. For the CED program, we provide the perfect setting to extend student’s learning experience by giving them an opportunity to be innovative and discover new skills needed by the society.
Finally, I would like to invite you to come and join our community engagement program where you can meet new friends, have fun, learn something new, and enjoy a range of memorable experiences. Kindly consider this opportunity to get engaged with the community, and create precious lifelong memories.
CED-WMCUS is a community engagement program that utilizes social entrepreneurship approaches for stimulating socio-economic development and environmental sustainability in the local communities.
The program provides structured opportunities for student participants to interact and work across cultures in developing sound ideas for a better future.
