drg. Ika Dewi Ana, M.Kes., Ph.D., as UGM Deputy Chancellor for Research and Community Service, revealed her gratitude to some parties involved, from Lecturer of Field Guidance (DPL), Area Coordinator (Korwil), partners, to the ranks of UGM DPkM. He revealed that because of their dedication, the implementation process of the UGM SCS-CEL this time could run well.
Finally, Ika encouraged the students who participated in the SCS still needed to learn from the community where they served even though they did not often or at all could not meet in person. Hence, through this community, students can learn about real-life after college. According to her, you cannot learn this lesson from the preceding lecture material.
