This MoU with UIN Banten, initiated through the work of Prof. Yanwar Pribadi, the Secretary of the Faculty of Islamic Studies UIII, was warmly welcomed by the faculty. This collaboration will have a positive impact on both institutions.

“This MoU could be a significant opportunity for us (FIS) to expand our network on a national and international scale.” Stated Prof. Noorhaidi.
