Dulu Pedagang Kaki Lima, Kini Menjadi Dosen

Sosok

Oleh : Deni Kurniawan As’ari
Wakil Sekjen IKA PKn UPI Bandung
Pernah jualan di kaki lima, sekarang menjadi seorang dosen. “Hidup seperti roda berputar”[1]  pepatah ini rupanya tepat menggambarkan nasib baiknya. Ia saat kuliah pada jurusan PKn UPI Bandung periode 1995-2002 harus nyambi berjualan sandal di kaki lima Pasar  Kiaracondong, Bandung.   
Mengapa? Karena harus membiayai sendiri keperluan kuliahnya. Setelah ayah tercintanya wafat duabulan setelah ia masuk IKIP Bandung tahun 1999. Biasanya berjualan selepas kuliah sampai malam. Ulet dan tekun yang akhirnya membuat ia berhasil menyelesaikan kuliahnya dan kini menjadi seorang dosen.
Saat mahasiswa lainnya—termasuk saya, mengandalkan biaya kuliah kiriman dari orang tua dan atau beasiswa,  maka suami dari Fitri Resmiati, S.Pd. dan ayah dari Muhamad Luthfi Ardiansyah dan Anindya Tresna Dewi menjadi pembeda. Ia sudah bisa mandiri bahkan menopang kehidupan ekonomi keluarganya saat itu. Sebagian temannya termasuk saya acung jempol pada dedikasi dan semangatnya. Tidak mudah pastinya, menjalani kuliah sembari bekerja. Butuh energi dan kerja keras luar biasa. 
Rahmat Sudrajat saat menyampaikan kuliah pada mahasiswa PPKn UPGRIS
Sosok itu adalah Rahmat Sudrajat,  yang kini berprofesi menjadi dosen di Program Studi PPKn Fakultas PIPSKR  Universitas PGRI Semarang  (UPGRIS).  Sebelum menjadi dosen Rahmat sempat menjadi guru Tata Negara di  SMA Bina Dharma 2 Bandung (Juli 2002Juni 2005),  guru Bidang Studi PKn di SMA Bina Dharma 2 Bandung (Desember 2003Agustus 2012),   guru Sosiologi di SMA Bina Dharma 2 Bandung (Juli 2005 2011), guru Sosiologi dan menjadi Wakil Kepala Sekolah Urusan Kurikulum di SMA Taruna Unggul Ganesha Bandung (2005 2007), guru Mata Diklat IPS di SMK Medikacom Bandung (Juli 2006Juni 2007) dan terakhir  pengajar PKn di SMK ICB Cinta Teknika Bandung. (Juli 2008-Agustus 2012).

Selanjutnya tepat mulai September 2012 sampai sekarang ia diberi kepercayaan menjadi dosen IKIP PGRI Semarang atau saat ini dikenal Universitas PGRI Semarang. Pria berkacamata ini  mengajar mata kuliah Pendidikan Kewarganegaraan, Kurikulum, SBM 1 dan 2, PPL , Sumber dan Media Pembelajaran, BukuTeks, PerencanaanPembelajaran, Belajar dan Pembelajaran, Inovasi Media Pembelajaran dan Kepramukaan.
Saya setuju dengan pendapat Prof. Dr. H. Abdullah, M.Si  yang juga Dekan Fakultas Dakwah dan Komunikasi UIN Sumatera Utara bahwa, “Pendidikan dapat mengubah nasib seseorang”.[2]  Rahmat  Sudrajat telah menunjukkannya kepada kita.  Ia merasa tidak cukup dengan pendidikan S1 pada jurusan PKn UPI, sehingga kemudian pada tahun 2009 saat UPI membuka jurusan PKn program S2, Rahmat tanpa pikir panjang memutuskan mengambil program S2. Alhamdulillah, S2-nya dapat ia selesaikan pada tahun 2012. Kembali, saat kuliah S2 semua biaya ditanggungya sendiri tanpa merepotkan orang tuanya serta tetap nyambi berjualan 1 minggu sekali di kaki lima (Gazibu depan Gedung Sate Bandung) sebagai tambahan untuk biaya kuliah S-2.
Di sela kesibukannya aktif dalam berorganisasi.  Saat SMA terlibat dalam Paskibra Kota Bandung (1991-1993), Purna Paskibraka Indonesia (1993), Sekbid Organisasi di HMCH (1996-1997), Pembina Paskibra SMA Bina Dharma 2 Bandung (2003-2012), Pembina OSIS SMA Bina Dharma 2 Bandung (2004-2011), Pembina OSIS SMK ICB CintaTeknika (2011-2012) dan  kini Pembina RacanaSubiadinata Universitas PGRI Semarang (2014-sekarang).
Adapun pengalaman pendidikan diawali dari SDN Kiaracondong XI Bandung (lulus 1987), SMPN 30 Bandung (lulus 1990), SMAN 16 Bandung (lulus 1993), S-1 UPI Fakultas PIPS Jurusan PMPKN (lulus 2002) dan  S-2 UPI Program Studi PKn (lulus 2012). Pria kelahiran 7 April 1975 ini kini  tinggal bersama keluarganya di Kota Semarang. Tepatnya di  Perum UniversitasPGRI Semarang No. B-6 Rt. 07/05 Jl. Zebra Tengah Kel. Pedurungan Kidul, Kec. Pedurungan, Kota Semarang. Ia merasa enjoy walau harus berdomisili di Semarang yang berarti menjadi wong jowo.  Motto hidupnya cukup menarik. “Hidup itu Indah maka bawalah keindahan dalam kehidupan.” Mungkin motto ini pula yang membuat ia senang menjalani kehidupan dimanapun ia berada.
Kami segenap alumni PKn UPI yang tergabung dalam IKA PKN UPI turut bersyukur dan berbahagia. Semoga walau tinggal di Semarang, logat khas sundanya tidak akan pernah luntur.
Pelajaran terbesar yang dapat dipetik adalah bahwa kesuksesan dicapai melalui perjuangan, ketekunan, keuletan  dan tak kenal menyerah dengan keadaan. Rahmat Sudrajat telah membuktikannya.

Jadi, selamat untuk kang Rahmat….

  8. Impressively, this new version comes with new sounds, updated GUI, extended input/output signal range, added effects with a nice construction, and all of which has been developed by using synthetically generated samples and tone sequences.
    With the controls that were easy to utilize and the low-key theme, this is definitely a guitar amp simulation that users would love to use.
