After the fall of military regime in 1998, Indonesia faces a new era of democratization. Democracy has been the major discourse where it emerges as the driving force for political and social changes of the nation. To nurture democracy as the public commitment within a Muslim country such as Indonesia, the role of Islamic higher education is very critical, in disseminating values and practices of democracy through a new Civic Education program for Muslim youth. Different from old model of indoctrinated civic education in the past era, the program introduced by Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University (UIN) Jakarta promotes new approach, subject, method and evaluation of teaching democracy and its related materials needed by a new democratic state like Indonesia. In regard to the threat of disintegration, the new model of civic education may have contributed in an educational effort to engender a democratic culture and respect for Indonesian diversity
