Realizing Community Service Based on Tri Dharma
Universitas Sumatera Utara (USU) aims to realize community service based on the Three Pillars of Higher Education (Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi). Community service is conducted through the activities of faculties, lecturers, and students in various fields. We encourage the USU academic community to expand their horizons beyond traditional contexts and possess relevant knowledge and skills to create positive changes in society.
Community Service Activities
Head of the Community Service Team Sri Melvani Hardi said, this community service aims to improve the learning process by using the concept of differentiated learning, which serves to accommodate the diversity of students in the classroom in terms of student interests, learning profiles, and readiness to achieve better learning outcomes. Among others, by using various learning applications namely Paddlet, Kahoot, Nearpod, and Classcraft, which allow students to access learning materials anytime and anywhere, while still maintaining face-to-face interaction with teachers and fellow students.
