by Gontor through various economic enterprise activities inside the campus is
the total processes of educational activities, carried out by students and
teachers themselves. They act as the subjects and objects of the education at
the same time. They teach themselves through various activities, creativities
and social interaction for their character and personality building. This
learning process is purposely undertaken in Gontor, because the basic
