The Acceleration Program of Green Movement for World Class University
The Study Center held a meeting with the leaders of UIN Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi in the Rector's room (22/6/2022) to discuss two important agendas, the world ranking and the green movement. This work acceleration program meeting was attended by the head of the center for conservation and biological resources studies (Bayu Kurniawan, S.Si., M.Sc) and the head of the center for environmental studies (Syukrya Ningsih, S.Si., M.Sc. ).
The first agenda is the world university ranking. In increasing the world university ranking, the management of multi-language websites is crucial as a supporting evidence required by the world university ranking around the world, that is the UN language (English or Arabic). As a campus under the Ministry of Religion, UIN Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi should have a multilingual website to attract foreign students or researchers from abroad as well as support for the ranking program that has been followed by UIN Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi, including the QS World Class University, although UIN STS Jambi has been ranked in other world rankings such as the UI GreenMetric World University Rankings, Webometrics, Uni-Rank and Times Higher Education Impact Rankings.
The second agenda is support for the green movement. In order to support the green campus program, some efforts conducted are handling climate change mitigation, conducting discussions on the need for trees related to reforestation plans and protective plants to be planted along the ring road of campus II UIN Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi. The type of trees to be planted should have 3 main functions. They are: 1) protection, 2) carbon reduction and carbon storage, 3) ecological service provider. Provision of trees to be planted is obtained from BPDASHL (Controlling Watersheds and Protected Forests) for about 1800 trees with various types of species including Trembesi, Ketapang, Durian, Angsana, Flamboyan, Pucuk Merah, and Glodokan Tiang trees.
