Abstract

Today’s diverse social and national life requires a harmonious social life. This is partly supported by the character of the lives of people who are moderate in religion. At present some members of the community appear to exhibit religious attitudes and behaviour that are exclusive, intolerant, hostile to fellow believers of different religions, even radical attitudes and behaviour that want to live in a state that is contrary to the basic principles of the Indonesian state. To overcome this, the Government through the Ministry of Religion launched the Religious Moderation Program, which is essentially a public policy. Higher education has a strategic role in helping the government realize this goal. The communication function inherent in each tertiary institution is very significant in realizing the effectiveness of the program. With qualitative and exploratory approaches / methods it is known that this religious moderation policy / program is a breakthrough step by the government in facing threats to national life. In the framework of an authoritative public policy, this program does not yet have a strong legality foundation. The government, in this case the Ministry of Religion, has not yet stipulated it in the form of regeling public policies. Universities in accordance with its function in Tridharma Higher Education has a great opportunity to participate in the success of this government program. Some challenges and problems faced by universities in this effort, including relating to the juridical foundation, the availability of resources, commitment from university leaders, program communication and consistency in program implementation. The government needs to clarify this program at the operational policy level so that universities have operational technical guidelines to implement it.contracts to determine the value of QVaR and EVaR.
