Integrated social service (Baksos) Syiah Kuala University (Unsyiah) which took place in Aceh Jaya Regency for a week from October 7-12, 2018 has ended. The closing of the event took place in the Aceh Jaya Regency Regional Secretary's Hall (Setdakab) on Friday afternoon (10/12) which was attended by a number of regional officials, community leaders, deans of the faculty, and the academic community of Unsyiah.
Vice Rector IV Unsyiah, Dr. Hizir, said this activity involved 12 faculties, 3 work units, and hundreds of students and the academic community of Unsyiah. This annual program is a form of concern for Unsyiah towards the people of Aceh. This spirit is in line with the founders of Unsyiah who hope that the oldest campus in Aceh can educate the community, so as to bring a better life.
For this reason, Hizir is grateful for the support of the entire Forkopimda Aceh Jaya line that has supported and succeeded this activity. He also confirmed that if the social service activities in Aceh Jaya would continue with different programs. One of them is through the Real Work Lecture (KKN) student program which is planned to be implemented in 2019.
"We want this good activity to continue, one of them is by sending KKN students to Aceh Jaya, so they can see and identify the potential in this district," he said.
Hizir hopes that the presence of KKN students can continue activities that have been triggered during social service. One of the targets is to create one product in each village and sub-district, so as to improve the economic life of the community.
Deputy Regent of Aceh Jaya, Tgk. Yusri S, appreciated the Unsyiah who had chosen Aceh Jaya as the location of the activity. He admitted that this activity was very helpful for the local government in improving the welfare of the community. For this reason, he hopes this activity can continue. Moreover, according to him, Aceh Jaya currently still needs advice and thoughts for better improvement.
Chairman of the committee, Dr. Hajjul Kamil, S.Kp., M.Kep, said there were 80 successful activities held during social service. This activity involved 12 faculties, 3 work units, as well as hundreds of students and members of Unsyiah. The activities carried out involve almost all disciplines owned by Unsyiah, such as the economy, agriculture, health, education, to disaster mitigation. All of these activities will be packaged in the form of reports as recommendations for the local government.
