Character Building Development Center (CBDC)
The BINUS UNIVERSITY Character Building Development Center (CBDC) was established in 2001. The center was established to facilitate character education among all BINUS UNIVERSITY students. Character education is integrated into all the university’s educational programs, and includes a comprehensive program of lectures aimed at shaping a GREAT alumnus – one who is not only smart and skillful, but also has a strong character and a good personality.
CBDC has the following responsibilities: Developing materials and preparation for character education, which is also known as Character Building (CB), for all BINUS UNIVERSITY students; Planning and developing teaching methods; Training and developing lecturer skills.
Previous CB consists of four (4) subjects as follows: Character Building I, Relationship with Self: This course emphasizes the creation of a positive attitude for oneself. Character Building II, Relationship with Others: The course discusses building a positive attitude with others. Character Building III, Relationship with God: This course focuses on developing a positive attitude towards the various religions – one that is inclusive, plural, open, and critical. Character Building IV, Relationship with Nature, Science and Technology, and the Workplace. This course discusses how to develop a positive attitude towards nature and the environment, develop and use science and technology, and become a professional in the workplace.
Now, according to the working world that increasingly demands high and complex, then the character education materials to all students of the BINUS UNIVERSITY changed, adapted to the demands of the working world. Without leaving the essential elements of character education that continue to be developed in it, the new character education materials will be more directed to help students have more capability in terms of work and entrepreneurship (employability and entrepreneurial skills).
New material character-building education can be regarded as more specific development of the old material, so that is also known as “New CB”. The new material consists of four series with a total weight of credits equal to the old CB. The four new series, with the weight of each = 2 credits, are: CB: Self Development, CB: Spiritual Development, CB: Interpersonal Development, and CB: Professional Development. Through various activities of the deepening of the four themes Binus graduates are expected to have advantages in terms of: Self-confidence, the inclusive religious attitudes (respect for differences), good interpersonal relations, especially in the workplace, and the ability to manage work and ethical decision-making on important issues related to the world of work and entrepreneurship. With more capacity in these things are expected the graduates of BINUS UNIVERSITY have high competitiveness in the global labor market.
Lecturing methods have been developed to be more interesting, which employ, among others, numerous real case studies, movie screenings related to the topic under discussion, role playing, and field trips. In summary, it can be said that Character Building is a special mandatory course that focuses on the formation of character, giving priority to humanistic values.
