Abstract

This paper highlights initiatives led by the Office of Student Development and Community Engagement, Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences (KIRKHS), International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) in extending support services to students and community during COVID19 pandemic. During the Movement Control Order (MCO) period in Malaysia between March and June 2020, some KIRKHS students at IIUM Gombak campus decided to return to their hometowns while the rest remained at their hostels. Several financial and psycho-social issues involving KIRKHS students have been reported to the Kulliyyah management. In response, the Kulliyyah has embarked on various initiatives in ensuring the welfare and wellbeing of her students and the community are well-taken care of during such difficult period. This paper analyses measures taken by the Kulliyyah management team to address financial and psycho-social issues among KIRKHS students as a result of the period movement control order in Malaysia. Several initiatives have been successfully conducted to assist KIRKHS students who are in campus and at home such as KIRKHS COVID19 donation drive, IIUM Mental Health and Psychosocial Care Team (IMPACT), Online Get-Together session with KIRKHS students and also webinars on the roles of mosque during pandemic times. Some of the initiatives are still going on until today.
