Keyword : RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT TOWARD CIVIL SOCIETY BASED ON LOCAL WISDOM

Indonesia is a rich country with its resources. Borrowing the words from Indomie’s advertisement, “Dari Sabang Sampai Merauka dari Sangir Sampai Talaud” that show horizontal dimension, but in vertical dimension there are many more can be found from down deep the bottom of sea till the tip of the volcano, even on the airspace, and even deep down beneath the earth. Koes Plus in their song mention how rich is Indonesia in Kolam Susu, also series of song entitled Nusantara. However we not just looking at Indonesia’s natural resources per se. Indonesia also rich in its culture. Data from Sensus Penduduk 2013 showed 633 major ethnics in Indonesia (BPS, 2016). Every ethnic lives in certain area and have their own local culture and custom that also known as Local Wisdom, the knowledge that has been discovered or acquired by local people through long experience.




However people are now moving between place and they also married with people from different ethnic. They may bring their cultures to their new place or new family. But often they left their culture behind and adopt the local culture at the place they live or in their new family. In this case they are not using their Local Wisdom. Do they still have their “Local Wisdom”? Yes they do, since local wisdom is now become a local situation which is unique. It may come from their ancestor and been used in the area for long time, or something new that make that particular area is unique.




University or any Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in Indonesia has a specific role in their academic processes. It is known as Tri Dhama Perguruan Tinggi. It shows three obligations to every universities to provide Education; Research and Community Service. Those are determined in Undang-Undang nomor 2 tahun 1961.




Higher education institutions should implement Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi using their resources. Academics community; infrastructures; intellectual resources also the alumni are the resources that belong to every HEI. Those resources should blend in harmony with their local community surrounding the HEI.




Every HEI with their resources should engage with community in their location whether at local, regional, national or in international level. They can use the community as the object, subject and partner during their engagement. However this engagement should also bring their unique identity as where they coming from or their origin as their fundamental character. This may known as a Local Wisdom.




HEI resources is not limited to their internal academic community such as the staffs; students and alumni; infrastructure and intellectual resources. The community and area surrounding the HEI also can be used as their resources. Often HEI "ignore" the community. They built and institution without considering local community. It looks like an "ivory tower", where the academics busy with their academic works and ignoring the community and no understanding of what is important for ordinary people.




Incorporating local people as a resources for a HEI is an easy one, unfortunately most dwellings around HEI are occupied by the students. Hence HEI have to expand its "border" to a wider area to be able to explore their engagement with community. Despite dwellers surrounding HEI are its own students or staffs, it does not mean they cannot be included as the object of HEI engagement. Learning from the "Kumpul Kebo" case in Jogyakarta in 1984. Those communities may also need to be involved in a community engagement either as the target or the subject.
