Character education is an important aspect in preparing a generation with good character and morality. In the era of disruption, with rapid technological and information advancements, it is crucial to strengthen the character of the younger generation to face constant challenges and changes. One of the current concepts of character education being applied is the Pancasila student profile. The Pancasila student profile consists of six dimensions, including faith and devotion to the One and Only God, noble morality, global diversity, mutual cooperation, independence, critical thinking, and creativity. This concept of character education can be implemented through various activities in schools, such as promoting good behavior, introducing Pancasila values, and enforcing discipline. The research methodology used in this article is a qualitative descriptive approach, employing literature review and observation techniques to collect relevant articles related to the research topic. The research findings demonstrate that the concept and application of the Pancasila student profile serve as character education efforts to equip the younger generation in the era of disruption. Through its six dimensions, it is expected that students will develop Pancasila character in line with the nation's worldview. By strengthening students' character, we can prepare them to become a younger generation ready to face future changes and challenges.
