Next is Samson CMS, S.Sos., M.I.Kom., who discusses Sundanese-style Communication. He revealed that being on an organization needs to have a basic Sundanese communication theory that consists of silih asah, silih asih, and silih as asuh. Why do we have to study it? “Because we live on Sundanese Land, not on Java or other areas, then like it or not, we need to adapt to Sundanese Culture,” he said in his presentation session.
And there was Fitri Perdana, S.Sos., M.I.Kom., presented Unpad, Fikom, and Library and Information Science Study Program Organizational Structure. She revealed that a university certainly has an organizational structure that needs to get attention from students.
