The School of Advanced Studies welcomed 2 SUCs to have their benchmarking activities. These are the Partido State University of Camarines Sur and Nueva Viscaya State University of Bayombong, Nueva VIscaya last July 26 and August 5, 2022 respectively. The so called “meeting-of-minds” activities paved the way for opportunities of these Institutions to plan out initiatives like collaboration in the areas of academics and research. The Officials of SAS led by Dr. Valencerina, Dr. Dulos and Dr. De Vera shared the best practices along administration, academic operations, research and extension and even accreditation. It was a very productive engagement with these Universities which resulted to future plans of another visit for signing an agreement to start the partnership.
