Muslim Societies in Asia Program
Distinguished Speaker Forum

The Future of Islamic Education in Indonesia
Dr. Fadlil Munawwar Manshur
Gadjah Mada University
Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Contrary to the image that we have in America, pesantrens or madrasahs (Islamic schools) in Indonesia are not breeding grounds for terrorists. They are multi-faceted centers of learning that strive to provide high-quality, well-rounded education for children of all ages. In addition to offering a comprehensive curriculum centered on Islam, both as a way of life and as a rigorous academic endeavor, these centers of learning are also cutting edge in their exploration of other subjects such as language, mathematics, and the natural sciences.

We are pleased to announce that a leading expert on pesantren education, Dr. Fadlil Munawwar Manshur, Chief of the Arabic Literature Department, Faculty of Cultural Sciences, Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, is currently visiting the Manoa campus. He has kindly accepted our invitation to share his knowledge and experience in the dynamics of Islamic education and Arabic language learning in Indonesia at our Distinguished Speaker Forum.

Please come join us for this rare opportunity to engage in a discussion with a leading educator from Muslim Southeast Asia! Snacks provided in collaboration with PERMIAS Hawai’i and the Indonesian Club.
