Abstract

This article is an article that seeks to illustrate to readers and educators, in general, the importance of cultural mapping in strengthening the character of their students. Character Enforcement is the key to success in creating a better future. While the development of academic culture is one of the efforts in strengthening character. Academic culture is rarely a concern in academic studies in universities. If there were any, then not many of the studies have been followed up. Academic culture is related to scientific attitudes such as the intended scientific attitude, curiosity, critical attitude, open attitude, objective attitude, willingness to respect the work of others, the courage to defend the truth, and attitude to reach forward. Mapping academic culture is expected to provide an overview of lecturers and study programs in developing learning strategies and strengthening student character.
