Visiting Professor: Civil Society

Yogyakarta (7/10) – Visiting Professor (Guest Lecturer) is one of the internationalization programs of the Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (UMY) which aims to present Visiting Lecturers from foreign universities, especially those who are included in the 100 QS World University Rankings or who have a cooperation agreement with UMY. The Visiting Professor Program can be proposed by two or more Study Programs, either under the same Faculty or across Faculties. The output of the Visiting Professor Program is the publication of research results with UMY lecturers in reputable/indexed international journals. In addition, with the Visiting Professor program, students can explore and receive new knowledge and knowledge that lecturers do not necessarily teach at UMY. It can also provide an internationalization experience for UMY students who register for the International class.

Therefore, the International Program of Government Affairs and Administration Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (IGOV UMY) held a Visiting Professor activity which became a routine activity at IGOV UMY. In this Visiting Professor, IGOV UMY invited Samra Azam, MA, M.Phil. from the University of Bradford, England. The activity was held on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, in Classroom 303, Postgraduate UMY Building.

In this activity, Ms. Samra brought up the topic of Civil Society. There were several discussions in the Visiting Professor activity this time, such as how CSOs work with the community, the 7 functions of Civil Society, and social cohesion. The event was also attended by David Efendi, S.IP., MA. as a lecturer from the Civil Society Course at IGOV UMY. With this activity, students can expand their knowledge, as stated by Gumesa Rahma Jati as a student of IGOV UMY batch 2021. “I think this activity can help me expand my knowledge and knowledge and can also provide new perspectives in the course I’m studying,” said Gumesa.
