Abstract

This paper aims to explain higher education initiatives in integrating Gender Equality & Social Inclusion (GESI) in education, research & community service activities. The study was conducted using focus group discussions, in-depth interview, & secondary data. GESI analysis was conducted to understand and critical reflection on GESI initiation in education & teaching, research, and community service programs. Although GESI has a strong basis in government policy but not yet an integrated part of the state policy implementation such as the National Development Plan. In line with that the higher education has not yet fully commitment to integrate GESI into management and the three higher education‟s obligations (education, research, and community services). Even though the numbers are relatively small, there is a movement from the 'bottom' from the lecturers / researchers who already have a GESI perspective
