In a groundbreaking move towards internationalization, the Universitas Ciputra Surabaya (UC) is set to host its first Flagship International Event from September 24th to 30th, 2023. This monumental event is organized by IBM IC in collaboration with seven faculties: the School of Business Management, School of Creative Industry, School of Tourism, School of Medical, School of Psychology, School of Communications and Media Business, and the School of Information Technology. The initiative marks a significant milestone as UC celebrates its 17th Anniversary.
Under the overarching theme of “Embracing Sustainability,” the event is a testament to UC’s commitment to global engagement and fostering connections across diverse academic disciplines. The university, having laid the groundwork for internationalization in recent years, is now taking a giant leap forward by hosting this week-long event, uniting faculties under a common banner.
Sustainability, a key focus of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, has emerged as a universal concern, particularly among the younger generation. Regardless of differences in race, culture, religion, ethnic backgrounds, and language, today’s youth are united in their determination to ensure a habitable planet for future generations. This collective commitment to sustainability transcends geographical boundaries, making it a shared goal worldwide.
The Flagship International Event at UC reflects this global consciousness, bringing together students, faculty, and professionals from diverse fields to explore and address the challenges and opportunities associated with sustainability. The event is not merely a conference but a manifestation of UC’s dedication to contributing meaningfully to global conversations and initiatives.
As UC takes its first bold step towards a more international future, the Embracing Sustainability event sets the stage for future collaborations, partnerships, and initiatives that extend beyond borders. It is a declaration that UC, in its 17th year, is ready to embrace a more interconnected and sustainable future, making a lasting impact on the global stage. Join us in this pivotal moment as we collectively chart a course towards a more sustainable and inclusive world.
