Islamic education aims to make man mature physically and spiritually. Normatively, Islamic education should not be oriented around science and technology, as they are merely tools to enable humanity to reach its fullest potential. Islamic education thus aims to develop man’s character and conscience to profit from existence here and the hereafter. Islamic education is hoped to provide solutions to problems in a fast-changing globalized age at the level of society, state, and global community.

In societal development, Islamic education is challenged by rapid societal changes. Many conflicts occur vertically or horizontally. There is a need for the empowerment of Islamic Educational Institution which is always relevant to society. Using literature study, this papers aims to analyze the contribution of Islamic Educational Institution, focusing on Higher Education, against radicalism in Indonesia.
