The seminar was held to prevent any corruption tendencies as early as possible, starting from introducing integrity concept to college students.
Campus, a learning medium for the next generation of Indonesians, is encouraged to uphold integrity values, which include honesty, sincerity, as well as a strong-and-bold character. In accordance with the recent development dynamics in the country, a campus should internalize the values of integrity well. Three strategies --strategic thinking, strategic action, strategic learning-- are required in developing such values. The seminar was attended by hundreds of students and educational figures from various universities in Surabaya, including, 1). Univ 45: Dr.Ir. Achmad Daengs GS., SE., MM, CPPM; 2). Perbanas: Chancellor Dr. Yudi Sutarso; 3). The Sages Institutes: Mr. Puguh; 4). ASMI: Ramon Syahrial, SP., MM.; 5). Univ. Wijaya Putra: Chancellor Budi Endarto, SH., M.Hum.; and 6). Chancellor of STKIP Bina Insan Mandiri: Dr. Asykuri, M.Pd.
Ryan Herviansyah Utama, the speaker, discussed in detail about corruption, corruptors, as well as ways to strengthen prevention programs which must be realized by heads of local governments, heads of state-owned bodies, and private companies. They have to be aware of the surrounding people's characters, whether they are prone to be corrupt or not.
According to Ryan Herviansyah, these latent characters could be uncovered very early, "And that was my duty at the KPK, discussing with and aiding the heads of regional government if necessary, basically how to perceive and understand the human's corruptive tendency," as he explained in front of the audience.

OCTOBER 2nd, 2019. BATIK: INDONESIA'S CULTURAL HERITAGE FOR THE WORLD
Exactly on October 2, 2009, UNESCO had officially inscribed batik on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity under the Oral Traditions & Expressions clause of the Indonesian. With continuous advance of the fashion, batik is no longer reserved only for the older generation.
Nowadays, the millennial generation begin to view batik as a signature accent of everyday apparels instead of a mere dress code in wedding receptions or other formal events. Various parties, from office workers, entrepreneurs, and even students, have grown accustomed to batik clothes. Batik eventually becomes one of the archipelago fabrics to be proud of. Ten years later, on October 2nd 2019, all lecturers and staff of STIE IEU Surabaya wore their best batik clothes to office, in commemoration of Batik Day.
According to Dr. Suharto, MM, the Director of Postgraduate Program in STIE IEU Surabaya, batik commands a great respect as the world cultural heritage. He also added that the name batik was coined from the terms 'ngembat' and 'dot.' These two words mean ‘melontarkan titik” (loosely translates into “throwing dots/points”). It implies that the making of batik is an activity of throwing point in a piecemeal fashion on top of a plain cloth.
