ISRSF Conducts the 11th Arryman Symposium at Universitas Islam Internasional Indonesia (UIII)
Jakarta, June 13, 2023 - The Indonesian Scholarship and Research Support Foundation (ISRSF) once again conducted its 11th annual Arryman Symposium.
“Unlike previous symposia, which were always hosted by ISRSF, this symposium is very special, because Universitas Islam Internasional Indonesia (UIII) or Indonesian International Islamic University is acting as the host, through The Institute for Advanced Research (IFAR) of UIII, a member of the IFAR Consortium,” said Irfan Hutagalung, Head of ISRSF and Chairman of IFAR Consortium, Tuesday (6/13 ).
Director of IFAR UIII and Vice Rector for Research, Cooperation and Public Relations, Professor Jamhari Makruf, said that it is an honor for UIII and IFAR of UIII to be the host of this 11th annual Arryman Symposium, which presented Indonesian researchers and past awardees of Arryman Scholarship who studied doctoral degree at Northwestern University, Chicago, United States of America.
“This Symposium brought in six Indonesian talented scholars who received Arryman Scholars from ISRSF. Four of them completed their Doctorate program, namely Rahardhika Utama, Ph.D, Luthfi Adam, Ph.D, Gde Dwitya Arief Metera, Ph.D and Sabina Satriyani Puspita, Ph.D. The other two are close to completing their Doctorate program, namely, Norman Joshua and Yoes Kenawas. These past awardees are tackling various contemporary issues related to Sociology, Politics, Anthropology, and History,” added Irfan.
These Arryman Scholars alumni have spread their wings and have become researchers and academics at universities in Indonesia that joined in IFAR Consortium, namely IFAR of Atma Jaya Unversity, IFAR of Monash University Indonesia, and IFAR of UIII.
“We hope the new generation of Indonesian academics who have studied at top, global universities such as Northwestern University, can be involved in social discourses on the world forum ,” said Irfan.
“We have high hopes that this symposium can raise the spirit of UIII’s academic community”, said Jamhari to end the talk.
