In addition, the two universities also envisioned building partnership in research and extension endeavors. Some of the projects of CBSUA that have been presented were the ‘Pinaggikanan,’ one of the most proactive programs of CBSUA.
Dean of the College of Development Education, Dr. Raquel Reapor, said that CBSUA’s members of the community are innovators who still want to expand, elevate, and enhance the programs and that they look forward to the assistance and guidance of the partner university – Tarlac Agricultural University.
Dr. Christine Ferrer, the Director of External Linkages and International Affairs of TAU; Dr. Claire Anne Olivares, the Dean of the College of Education of TAU; and other officials clarified several pieces of information regarding CBSUA’s proposals, and showed their affirmation to the two projects in the end.
