"Students at campus are one of the main markets for drug dealers because there are many people gathered here. We routinely conduct urine tests every semester for employees and students. Furthermore, we also prohibit smoking cigarettes in every building, because according to NNB, smokers often act as a gap to drug trafficking," said Prof. Edi.

"Students must refuse and report if they find out about any activities related to drug distribution in the campus environment. We also provide rehabilitation services for the community reported by the drug task force," said Agus.

This training event not only focuses on drug prevention, but also aims to improve students' soft skills, creativity, innovation, and leadership. The material taught includes technology development, digitalization in management, and the use of digital tools to enhance organizational efficiency.
