The signing of the last cooperation agreement was carried out with the Da’wah Faculty of IAIN Purwokerto, on November 30th, 2020.

Cecep also said that cooperation during 2020 was carried out with a number of higher education institutions, especially with the state Islamic religious higher education institutiom (PTKIN) under the auspices of the Indonesian Ministry of Religious Affairs.
