Public Relations of AKS Sutha—Also proud and congratulates Boby Indrawan, who has passed the SUSI Student Leaders Program selection. This program is an annual program with various issues discussed. One of the program issues that Boby participates in is climate change and the environment.
Before being appointed as a delegation representing universities and Indonesia, various selection processes were followed, both internal campus selection and central selection by the US Embassy. Stage 1 is an internal selection where registrants fill in the registration link and fill out the motivation on the Google form. So the best 30 were selected who would continue the interview stage to be determined as the best 10. Boby’s name was included in the ten best participants. The file was sent to continue the central selection from the US Embassy. Thank God, on January 11, 2 UIN students passed the file selection to proceed to the interview stage. Until March 17, Boby was appointed as one of the Indonesian delegates who would participate in the SUSI Student Leaders Program at the University of Nedava, Reno.
The Study of the US Institutes (SUSIs) for Student Leaders is an intensive, short-term academic program that aims to equip undergraduate student leaders with a deeper understanding of the United States while enhancing their leadership skills. Each Institute accommodates 20 participants. The Institute consists of a four-week academic residency with a balanced series of seminar discussions, readings, group presentations, and lectures. Site visits, leadership development, cultural activities, and community service round out the academic courses and sessions. The US Branch of Studies has sponsored the Student Leaders Institute since 2003. The Institute is one of four 2023 summer Studies of the US Global Student Leaders Institute. ECA has awarded the Meridian International Center for administering this program.
SUSI on Climate Change and the Environment will increase participants’ knowledge of US history, government, institutions, society, and culture in the context of the theme. Participants can also explore sustainable development; clean energy; conservation; environmental justice; marine protection; pollution; economic impact; public health; and the impacts of climate change, in particular on underserved populations and communities, youth, and minorities, including indigenous peoples. The Institute will combine a focus on US historical events and contemporary American life, including current political, social, and economic debates in a pluralistic society. In addition to class-based lectures and learning activities about the science behind climate change, participants will engage with government officials, nonprofits, and businesses to learn how each sector works individually and together to address climate risks unique to the state of Nevada. A special meeting may be held with the Governor’s Office on Climate Change; with officials on the Paiute Tribe reservation; Great Basin Project and Great Basin Resource Observation; Desert Research Institute and Western Regional Climate Center; and with public and private sector leaders responding to sustainable infrastructure development including Tesla, Fulcrum Bioenergy, and Nevada Geothermal Power, Inc.
The emergency risk simulation will explore how local communities prepare for and respond to mock forest fire threats by managing resources, delivering aid and communicating key messages. Participants can also take cultural tours in San Francisco, California, and Virginia City, Nevada.
The Head of the Islamic Accounting Department of State Islamic University, Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi, Mellya Embun Baining, S.E., M.E.I congratulated him on the achievements and hoped that through this activity, Boby would be even more motivated to study abroad.
