Abstract

This study aims to determine the efforts to prevent religious radicalism in the Islamic State Higher Education (PTKIN) in Indonesia, by taking the case of five State Islamic Universities (UIN) that represent five regions in Indonesia, namely Sumatera Island, Java Island, Kalimantan Island and Sulawesi island. The efforts seen in this research are the efforts made by UIN leaders, especially the Rector, in designing, organizing and developing various academic activities for students. There are five forms of effort examined through this research, namely (1) student development policies, (2) curriculum development, (3) fostering Intra Campus Student Organizations (OMIK) and (4) coaching extra-curricular activities. Data is collected by the study of documentation, deep interviews with the Rector and other leadership elements whose main tasks and functions are relevant to student development and observation of the situation and dynamics of campus life, especially student activities. This study found that efforts to prevent religious radicalism in the UIN environment were not carried out in the form of prohibitions, not even coercive, but were carried out through passive resistance, in the form of prevention, interdiction and development of counter programs. These efforts include (1) assistance to the activities of Understanding Academic Student Culture (PBAK), (2) the development of Ma'had al Jami'ah, (3) fostering Intra-Campus Student Organizations (OMIK), (4) incorporating material on Islamic modernization into the lecture curriculum with the concept of immersion curriculum and hidden curriculum, (5) providing close mentoring and monitoring by maximizing the role of Academic Advisor (PA) lecturers, (6) developing openness through limited dialogue and (7) developing attitudes critical and analytical through discussions, seminars and public lectures.
