"This year the Phase I (development) process has begun, the next stage will be a combination of the State Budget and my plan to go to the Middle East to request (funding)," Emil said.
"I got an order from the Vice President to look for development donors for UIII. Funds from the state budget are only one-third, two thirds are expected - for example, building one from this country, because this is international, "Emil said.
For this reason, Emil and his entourage departed from their homeland on Wednesday, March 5, 2019, to conduct a week-long overseas tour to three countries in the Middle East, namely Al Jazair, United Arab Emirates, and Morocco. In the series of work visits, he took the opportunity to request funding for the construction of the UIII Campus.
This UIII campus is expected to be a center of study or research on world-level Islamic civilization in Indonesia. Moreover, Indonesia is known as the country with the largest Muslim population in the world. In addition, the campus is also expected to be the center of Islamic civilization, the center of Islamic strategic studies, the center of Islamic studies, as well as museums of Islamic art and culture that will become the center of Islamic artifacts and manuscripts in Indonesia.
"Then this goal is so that foreign, international people can someday also study in West Java and in Indonesia. Of course we need an international standard place, "Emil said.
"If it is smooth one stage, next year it will accept students from international level for S-2 and S-3 only, so there will be no bachelor (S-1)," he continued.
The UIII campus will be built on an area of ??142.5 hectares. Where 30% of the land will be filled with buildings and the other 70% will be green land for the protection of environmentally friendly flora and fauna, so that it will become a place of recreation for campus residents and surrounding residents.
This campus will have seven faculties, namely: Faculty Islamic Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Islamic Economics, Faculty of Science and Technology, Faculty of Education, and Faculty of Architecture and Art. The first year of UIII will open three study programs, namely Islamic Studies, Political Science, and Education.
The construction of the UIII Campus has been proclaimed by President Jokowi two years ago through Presidential Regulation Number 57 of 2016 concerning the Establishment of the Indonesian International Islamic University. This commitment was strengthened with the status of PTNBH which will be directly pinned on UIII. In addition, this campus project is the only campus development that is included in the National Strategic Project (PSN) program in the field of education.
