The Director General of Higher Education appreciates universities that have developed this program with the KPK and hopes that it can become a compulsory subject in the university curriculum. Anti-corruption education is very much in line with the values of Pancasila, Religion and Citizenship. This anti-corruption education should be made into a millennial mode of learning that can shape attitudes and behavior with a science thinking approach. The Director General also hopes that more universities can enter the zone of corruption-free territorial integrity, where to make it happen it is not just a discourse but in governance and building attitudes and behavior.
