Meanwhile, the Undip Rector Prof. Yos said that, “KKN activities are fields for students to utilize their knowledge as well as learning media”. He further explained that, “In addition to students implementing the known knowledge in providing breakthroughs and innovations that benefit the community, students may also gain various lessons about leadership and management from the regional devices or local government. Thus, they may also gain a knowledge that is necessary to compete in the world of work.”
