It is the lead in implementing research-based community extension programs of the institution, from coordinating, monitoring, and evaluating the programs and initiatives by the office with its partner communities.
The foundation of its ambitions is aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. The institution recognizes its important role in nurturing this advocacy not only through our ultra-dynamic curriculum, but also through our environmental, social, and economic yet sustainable approach to our service. This manifests the institution’s commitment to imparting its vision, mission, goals, objectives, and more importantly, its core values, to all of its stakeholders.
The Community Engagement and Extension Services reflects the collaborative efforts exerted by all stakeholders of the community.
