RepublicofthePhilippines WESTERN MINDANAO STATE UNIVERSITY Zamboanga City, 7000 Philippines

July 30, 2011

HIS EXCELLENCY BENIGNO SIMEON C. AQUINO III President, Republic of the Philippines Malacaang Palace Manila

Your Excellency,

With great honor, the Western Mindanao State University respectfully submits the 2010 Annual Report. The years accomplishment is a record of the endeavor reflective of the development agenda of the institution, the community and the nation with emphasis on environment, health, education, gender and local governance.

Through direction and assistance from the national administration, the gains attained for the year were achieved at substantial levels. Thank you very much for the continued support.

With my highest esteem,

GRACE J. REBOLLOS, Ed.D. President


2010 was a year to reflect once more the Western Mindanao State Universitys ability to prevail over the ordeals of budgetary strain and financial frailty. Unfazed by these trials, the modest accomplishments for the year were attributed to the commitment of the WMSU family to serve and perform duties beyond what was called for. By transmuting trials into positive outlooks, goals were achieved in spite of the social and economic pressures. Conceivably these pressures serve as the driving force from which the university draws its strength to persevere and overcome.

The year in review is a reminder to all that the Western Mindanao State Universitys role in community and nation building remains undaunted and its own progression as a premier Higher Education Institution gaining in sustained momentum.

We congratulate the many men and women of WMSU from the faculty, to the non-teaching staff and the administration for their selfless dedication and loyalty, as we look forward to yet another challenging year.

GRACE J. REBOLLOS, Ed.D. President


As one great leader said The school is the last expenditure upon which the country should be willing to economize. The present educational system depicts a challenging landscape as national spending on educational services is dwindling. Yet despite seemingly insurmountable financial obstacles the Western Mindanao State University persevered. As one national newsprint discreetly described the dismal plight of all HEIs, several however, have maintained their positions as the countrys premier tertiary institutions. The Western Mindanao State University stands among those. For the year, the institution rationalized its resources and concentrated efforts on key areas which yielded results in significant measures. Starting with the academics, twenty faculty members were accredited the rank of Full Professor - an indicator of competence lying at the nucleus of instruction that fosters quality mentoring. The professors come from the various colleges who served the university with many years of teaching, researches conducted and published, and committed service to communities. Complementing the human capital is the academic performance of the colleges gauged by the accreditation status awarded by the accrediting agencies. The College of Education the pioneering education institution in the Region and in Mindanao was declared as a Center of Development. Likewise its undergraduate BS Elementary Education and BS Education courses were elevated to Level II by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Universities in the Philippines. These are the true markings of quality education that the university bears. At an economic vantage point, education may be now considered as a commodity with an economic value a universal argot adapted from the globalization trend for the services delivery industry. Albeit viewed as a subterfuge leading to the commercialization of educational services, the transformation of the institution only strengthens its resolve to prevail as a higher education entity that remains socially receptive, ever resilient to change, and committed to delivering the services as mandated. With the timely convergence of the Information and Communications Technology, access to knowledge and information is dimensionless defined only by the amount of data available in cyberspace. And as the technology comes within the reach of the common Filipino, the university increasingly is initiating programs that seek to optimize and exploit ICT in every possible application. One that stood out was the Office of the Vice President for Research Development and Extensions Research Utilization Publication and Information Dissemination e-journal publication. The project which is aligned with the no-border education policy for year 2020 was anchored on the onlinelibrary concept for completed researches giving access to researchers, students and academicians via internet. At the basic and secondary education level, the College of Engineering in tandem with the Department of Education Bureau of Alternative Learning spearheaded the i-schools and eSkwela projects. The projects incorporate computer-aided learning via interactive e-learning modules to teacher-led instruction as computers are now part of the medium for instruction. On research and development, the Research, Development and Evaluation Center under the OVPRDE gained foothold on the international research community as its dean was awarded with the International Peer Reviewer Award during the International Conference on Higher Education Research (ICHER). In that same event, recognition was gained by the universitys research endeavors through the one of the researcher of the College of Forestry and Environmental Studies for his study on environmental issues. His research on macro environmental policy garnered 2nd Place for Best Poster Paper. Indeed, these are feats of hardwork and selfless dedication to ones profession imprinting a standard for the rest to follow suit and giving the university its due prominence in the area of research.

Albeit on a non-academic criterion and more of media-publicity perception, recognition in the form of featured television program was given to the dean of the College of Architecture for his exemplary designs in heritage architecture by a globally-airing TV network. While some designers focus on modern structural designs and advanced architectural concepts, ABS-CBNs The Filipino Channel showcased designs in architecture themed on heritage and conservative contemporary structures. The historical value of these designs highlighted the rich cultural heritage blending seamlessly with architecture from the colonial years and local cultural art. These structural works of architecture never fail to inspire students, artist, builders and professionals and it is the universitys pride to have such trait instilled in the universitys College of Architecture. For extension and social services, the university revived its floating school project and shall resume operations at the beginning of the first quarter of the following year. With clamor for the projects reactivation, the Embassy of Japan pledged financial assistance for the acquisition of a reconditioned steel-hulled marine vessel retrofitted with classroom amenities. The said vessel is expected to have longer service life thus doubling the number of target beneficiaries. It also compliments other extension educational programs for the young and adults focusing on basic education and functional literacy. Unconfined to providing basic education, the extension services department likewise committed to other community development efforts including livelihood training programs, community organization leadership training and local governance enhancement for community leaders. It is believed that it is only through community involvement and participation that policy formulation at the local and national levels becomes purposeful. Wielding this outlook, the Ecosystem-Based Community-Centered Sustainable Development Organization and Management (ECSOM) project was launched empowering communities to implement extensive local programs suited to their needs. These programs vary from livelihood enrichment, health issues, gender and society sector mainstreaming, to environmental preservation - collectively forming a unified core objective: sustainable community development. The university oversees the development of the human resource and the application of the sciences necessary to efficiently carry out these community programs outlined for the year and for the future. The year in review reflects the universitys commitment to delivering quality instruction, research and extension services. It is a university that carries a premium on social equity and performs duties anchored on humanitarian and moral principles.


PUBLICATIONANDCORRESPONDENCE WMSU Research Center E-Journal The Research Utilization Publication and Information Dissemination (RUPID) - the research publication unit of the Office of the Vice President for Research Development and Extension (OVP-RDE) - launched the first-in-the region e-journal last March 2010. The ejournal project was attuned to the no border education policy goals for 2020 which optimizes the use of the internet and telecommunications. The RUPID e-journal will make its archive available to the widest range of viewers through cyberspace for science-based information access for research and other purposes. The content of the archive were completed research studies covering various disciplines that have gone through the AgencyIn-House-Review - the screening process conducted by the Research, Development and Evaluation Center (RDEC) to gain entry into the Universitys official research publication the University Research Journal.

AWARDS,ACCREDITATION&COMMENDATION Center of Development (COD) for Teacher Training The Western Mindanao State University College of Education (WMSU-CEd) was declared as the sole Center of Development (COD) in Teacher Training in ZAMPEN region by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). The accreditation period of three years from 2010 to 2013 reinstated the universitys oldest colleges stature as the pioneering and top performing college of education. The evaluation for the distinction was administered by the CHEDs office of Programs and Standards (OPS) and the Technical Panel for Teacher Education. The college gained its due recognition because of its potential for delivering quality instruction, research and extension services. Accompanying the accolade was a cash incentive which shall be used to enhance and improve learning facilities for teacher and student development. This was a follow-through accomplishment as two of the colleges undergraduate programs the BS Elementary Education and BS Education courses were accredited to Level II by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP, Inc.).

PASUC Accreditation With the aim of increasing the pool of experts and committed educators, the Western Mindanao State University had twenty senior faculty members confirmed as professors and accredited by the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC). The candidates who applied for under the 3rd cycle implementation of the National Budget Circular No. 461 had met the requirements for the Common Criteria for Evaluation (CCE) and the Qualitative Contribution Evaluation. Candidates were screened by a five-man panel at

the regional level comprising of five SUC presidents of Region IX. A three-member team composing of three SUC presidents from the National Capital Region administered the final evaluation and subsequent confirmation. The following academic ranks were confirmed: three (3) Professor VI, three (3) Professor V, two (2) Professor IV, three (3) Professor III, six (6) Professor II, and three (3) Professor I.

Hall of Famers of State Colleges and Universities (SCUs) A national newsprint - The Philippine Star July 20 issue - featured a full article on women of state colleges and universities (SCUs). The story More Women at the Helm of SCUs by R.A. Fernandez, articulated the number of women who have risen to prominence in tertiary education due to their academic achievements as outstanding academicians and scientists. Included in the list of revered women who reached such exemplary stature was the WMSU President, Dr. Grace J. Rebollos who was the first Suma Cum Laude produced by the university. Dr. Rebollos earned her masters and doctorate degrees at the University of the Philippines and was the former Vice President of the Universitys Research, Development and Extension prior her ascent to the presidency. There were four other women-executives cited by the written feature from the following SCUs: University of the Philippines System (UPS), Mariano Marcos State University (MMSU), Southern Luzon State University (SLSU),and Bicol University (BU). In a related article featured on April 2010, the same correspondent wrote that WMSU was one of the eleven performing SUCs that has maintained its position as one of the countrys premier tertiary institution in spite of the limited budget allocations afforded by the national government. The ten other schools were: Mariano Marcos State University, Benguet State University, Isabela State University, Central Luzon State University, Bicol State University, Visayas State University, Aklan State University, Mindanao State University, University of Southeastern Philippines, and the University of Southern Mindanao

International Conference on Higher Education Research (ICHER) 2010 and Other ResearchRelated Awards Keeping its crosshairs on being the leading research institution with global standards, the Research, Development and Evaluation Center (RDEC) under the Office of the Vice President for Research, Development and Extension (OVP-RDE) gained another milestone as international recognition was given to its dean. Dr. Chona Q. Sarmiento, the Dean of WMSURDEC was awarded with the International Peer Reviewer Award during the International Conference on Higher Education Research (ICHER) held last April at Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Also recognized was Prof. Almudi G. Lukman of the College of Forestry and Environmental Studies who won 2nd Place for Best Poster Paper out of 200 papers presented in the same affair. In related events, Dr. Juliet B. Tendero, the director of the Research Utilization Publication and Information Dissemination (RUPID) was referred to and with an Outstanding Performance of the Editorial Board of Journal Publications award given last June 2010 at the Our Lady of Fatima University, Valenzuela City.

Recognition for Architectural Designs Prominence and prestige in architectural designs is inherent to the WMSU College of Architecture. This was further reinforced when its dean Arch Domingo Abarro III was featured in the The Filipino Channel (TFC) ABS-CBN Global broadcasting conglomerate. Aired from July to September for cable television, the show highlighted Arch. Abarros works notably his landmarks in Zamboanga City, namely; the Metropolitan Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral, the Paseo del Mar, the Jardin Maria Clara, the Tetuan parish Church, and the Convento and Theotokos Shrine Church in Cebu. These accomplishments and the person behind them serve as inspiration for architectural students to strive for global professionalism and excellence in structural and architectural design.

PICE National Quiz On November 2010, Abbas Sintinani Askari, a BS Civil Engineering student brought home the honor as champion of the 29th National Civil Engineering Student Quiz held in Cebu. Sixteen regional representatives coming form the various technical colleges and universities nationwide participated in the mathematical skills contest which was a regular activity of the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE) Annual National Convention. The honor bestowed upon the student was a clear indicator of academic proficiency of the WMSU College of Engineering and Technology.

EXTENSIONINITIATIVES The WMSU Floating School The WMSU Floating School Project which received the 2005 Peoples Choice Award for innovative development ideas had served for four years catering to the basic literacy needs of the tribal minorities of the city. Launched in 2007, its maiden voyage as a floating school was able to service out-of-school children aged 7-14 years and functional literacy for unschooled adults and skills development courses to unskilled men and women. On 2008, it educated thirty-eight Sama-Bajaus in five months of learning the basic skills in reading and writing. The projects objective and impact reestablishes the need for continuity and subsequently the required capital outlays for its refurbishment and renovation. Through the generosity of the Embassy of Japan under the Japan-Bangsamoro Initiatives for Reconstruction and Development (J-BIRD) program, a 4M-fund was donated for the supposed rehabilitation. However, this was later re-channeled to the acquisition of another unit a steel-hulled marine vessel, after thorough deliberation and by benefactors recommendation in view of the renovation cost of the old wooden-hulled equivalent. The newly acquired ship is currently undergoing retrofitting and refurbishment to suit the specified needs of a mobile, sea-based learning facility. WMSU was one of the eight recipients and the only HEI included in the JBIRD rebuilding program. Expected completion of said project was December of 2010 and shall resume operation on the first quarter of 2011.

Ecosystem-Based Community-Centered Management (ECSOM)





Community development involves the process of organizing groups, establishing rapport and interaction of among concerned groups, developing approaches to reach a common understanding among groups, and the subsequent setting up of realizable goals for the benefit of many. These basic principles however necessitate an intermediary component that facilitates all the elements into a collective effort. On July 2010, WMSU and six barangays in the west coast signed an agreement to pursue programs and projects under the EcosystemBased Community-Centered Sustainable Development Organization and Management (ECSOM) sponsored by the T. Kalaw Institute for Sustainable Development based in Makati City. The agreement, among others, includes the crafting of a cluster development plan which covers the following programs: vegetable production and marketing, advocacy to regulate sand and gravel quarrying, establishment of controls for pollution due to canning activities, youth development, water distribution system project, and the establishment of a community hospital. The initiative was spearheaded by the WMSU College of Social Work and Community Development.

INFRASTRUCTURE&FACILITIES 8M-Project Donated At a time when government financial subsidies for capital outlays were significantly curtailed for all public agencies, a grace worth eight-million (8M) for an infrastructure project was donated by the 1st Congressional District Representative Hon. Maria Isabelle ClimacoSalazar. Said project was constructed at the WMSU Laboratory Elementary Grounds as a multi-purpose covered building which shall have multiple functions serving as a gymnasium, a basketball court and a dance studio accessorized with the amenities for physical fitness programs and other activities.

Hotel and Restaurant Management Hall A structure with four columns and roofing which was constructed piece-meal due to budget trickles was finally made functional and named as the College of Home Economics Hotel and Management Hall on February 2010. A much-needed facility, the HRM Hall was a project realized through donations one of which was Delia Clavel Amante-Abaya - a nurse from Texas and an alumnus, who covered the costs for the concrete floor. What used to be an open playground had become a multi-purpose hall for various events and other gatherings for the College of Home Economics and adjacent colleges as well.





The academe assumes the lead role of a responsive and proactive sector of society that cultures its elements to adapt and improve an ever-changing technological, social, and societal milieu through academics and educational services. Since 1904, the Western Mindanao State University has been at the forefront of education and training marking its way as one of the top schools in the country.

ACADEMICACHIEVERS As an academe, the yardstick of success is the academic performance of its students evaluated at end of the school year. Administered and screened by the qualified mentors, students from each of the three academic levels vie for esteemed and reserved places that distinguish them from the common and the ordinary. For the 2009-2010 school year, the following successful candidates were recognized with academic distinctions: Integrated Laboratory Elementary School Ralph Cedric Flores Debra Anne M.

ENROLLMENTPROFILE Enrollment for School Year 2010-2011 First Semester was pegged at 25,279 inclusive of External Studies Units, Non-Formal Education and Integrated Laboratory Schools. For the Main Campus undergraduate programs, the College of Nursing had the highest enrollment contributing to 3,346 or 24% of the total population of 14,245. This was followed by the College of Engineering and Technology with 2,722 (19%), College of Education with 1,475 (10%) and the College of Liberal Arts with 1,579 (11%) headcounts. The College of Home Economics came in fourth with 1,342

(10%) attributed mostly to its BS Nutrition and Dietetics and BS Hotel and Restaurant Management. For External Studies Units, the College of Education posted 3,713 or 51% and followed by the College of Engineering with 2,410 (33%) more than half of the total student enrollment of 7,284. This may imply that the teaching and technicalindustrial profession still remains constant and popular in spite of the increasing trend in the field of allied medicine. Grouped according to academic undergraduate programs, WMSUs College of Nursing BS Nursing topped with 3,129 a combined number for both the regular and corporate programs. Job prospects specifically overseas seem to be the reason for the large figure. Although the General Engineering posted a significant number of 1,172, it does not however reflect any specific technical course as the Gen Eng program is a preparatory program for any regular engineering academic course. The College of Educations Bachelor of Elementary Education came in third with 923 enrollment count which can be attributed to the teaching professions popularity with still relatively high employment rates for teachers. For the ESUs, the BS Elementary Education accounted to 2,691 or approximately 37% of the 7,284 students enrolled for the semester. The mentioned course still retains its prestige as one of the most honorable field of profession specifically education at the foundation level. This was followed by IT courses: BS Computer Science and Associate in Computer Science with 1,178 and 1,159, respectively at 16%.

FACULTYPROFILE The University compels its faculty to pursue higher degree programs as new standards are imposed on the qualification and credentials of its teaching staff. Professional growth as well as the expertise gained from higher education studies will further aid in enhancing the quality of instruction. Through outsourcing and linkages, scholarships and other grants are availed by teaching workforce to earn Masters and Doctorate degrees in their chosen fields of specialization. In 2009, total regular faculty with doctorate degrees was 57 or 12% of the total, 205 (43%) with masters degrees, and 214 (45%) with baccalaureate degrees. The following year - 2010, faculty with doctorate degrees decreased to 53 or 11% and those with masters degrees to 199 (40%). However, regular faculty with baccalaureate degrees has increased to 251 contributing to 49% of the total regular teaching workforce. The increase of 27 regular faculty (6%) from the preceding year had a negative effect albeit small in the number of faculty with doctorate and masters degree holders which decreased by 1% and 3%, respectively. Much of the effect resulted to a 5% increase in the undergraduate level implying that no replenishment from each of the lower levels was taking place for the comparable years. For non-regular faculty, 4 (1%), 34 (9%) and 348 (90%) of the total accounted to the doctorate, masters and undergraduate degree holders, respectively. For the following year, there was a 45

(12%) decrease in the total number of non-regular faculty with the following percentage breakdown: 4 (1%), 29 (9%) and 308 (90%) for doctorate, masters and baccalaureate degree holders, respectively.

The ratio of regular to non-regular faculty for 2009 was 1.2:1 and for 2010 was 1.5:1, and the total combined figures for both non-regular and regular faculty was 862 and 844 for 2009 and 2010, respectively. A 2% decrease in the teaching workforce was observed in 2010.

HUMANRESOURCEDEVELOPMENT Graduate Studies Maintaining the Universitys pool of teaching personnel with lines of specialization, fourteen faculty members from the various colleges - seven pursuing doctoral degrees and seven masters degrees are expected to complete their respective graduate academic programs within the school year.

Promotions With fifteen colleges and over thirteen thousand students, the institution required a commensurate workforce to effectively deliver and sustain quality education, and social and extension services. Through the scrap and build scheme, vacant higher positions were no longer refilled but were flow-rated into plural plantilla items. The scheme greatly applied to faculty positions as the hiring of additional instructors were derived from the student population. The first quarter of the year was highlighted by the appointments of forty-seven faculty members mostly hired then as visiting lecturers or substitutes as Instructor-I giving them the benefits and privileges as regular employees of the university.

PASUC Accreditation Twenty professors of the University were confirmed by the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC) under the 3rd cycle implementation of the National Budget Circular (NBC) 461. The twenty candidates applied, met the requirements for the Common Criteria for Evaluation (CCE) and the Qualitative Contribution Evaluation (QCE) and have passed personal interviews given by the panel composing of five SUC presidents. The ranks and number of successful candidates are as follows: Prof. VI (3), Prof. V (3), Prof. IV (2), Prof. III (3), Prof. II (6) and Prof. I (3). The number of faculty with commendable academic ranking is also an indicator of an Institution standing among academes.


STUDENTDEVELOPMENT Language Development Resource Center (LRDC) With English as the universal language and medium for instruction, the Language Development Resource Center offers Intensive English Proficiency Program for foreign students prior to enrollment. The program covers four basic areas in the English language: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Currently, a class of five Turkish students are enrolled IEPP the third batch of Turkish students who took the same language class.

Center for Continuing Education (CCE) With the growing popularity of the BS Hotel and Restaurant Management because of the high employment rates in the Tourism and Hotel Industry overseas, the Center for Continuing Education and the College of Home Economics conducted the Flair Bartending SeminarWorkshop with the aim of providing the knowledge and skills for BSHRM students in style bartending, shipping, hotel and resort operation. As the heading implies, Flair Bartending is an added-value for potential hotel and resort staff who find bartending as an art which greatly enhances job prospects.

STUDENTSUPPORT&SERVICES Scholarships Office Ever heeding to the clamor for free and/or subsidized education, the WMSU Scholarships Office had acquired one additional scholarship grantor for the year: the PNP Rainbow Multipurpose Cooperative (PNP-RMPC). Four freshman students had availed of the mentioned scholarship program effective 1st Semester SY 2010-2011. Total scholarship programs granted to the University is now 67 with 1052 grantees for SY 2009-2010 and 863 for SY 2010-2011.

Career and Placement Office In May, the University through the Career and Placement Office (CPO) in collaboration with the Department of Labor and Employment Region IX (DOLE-IX) hosted the annual Labor Day Job Fair at the school premise. The event was participated by at least sixteen overseas employers and twenty-six local industries and employment agencies. As the event concluded, one hundred eighty two applicants were pre-contracted for overseas and six hundred four for local employment were virtually hired for immediate employment.

The University Library With the growing number of colleges seeking accreditation, the University Library plays a vital part in the colleges efforts towards this objective. Requisites for the coveted AACCUP recognition include research and library facilities with ample, current and up-to-date information materials. Within this clause, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) peripherals and internet connection for on-line referencing were installed and three hundred books with resource DVDs and CDs were acquired as pre-accreditation provisions. Further, the University Librarys e-library on-line system has proven its value as an indispensable tool for information acquisition for both faculty and students. Said system likewise sustained other library services through its fees collected. One-Stop-Shop Enrollment System The process of registration has become taxing as more students flock to the University each school year. Addressing this issue was the idea of a single-flow, confined-space and real-time enrollment system which was introduced at the beginning of SY 2010-2011. Dubbed as the OneStop-Shop registration, the system precludes non-paying enrollees to the issuance of the Certificate of Registration (COR) which entails a lot of inconveniences like the dissolution of classes due to deficient number of students which in turn was a result from subject withdrawals because of non-payment. The One-Stop-Shop eliminated the encumbrance because it monitored students who did not pay and consequently placed them on the waiting list giving priority to those who had paid; composition of classes were then based on those students who had met the minimum registration payments. In addition, the system which was centralized in nature had efficiently cut down enrollment time/period by as much as 40%. Its impact on students, assigned faculty, and frontline administrative staff spelled out lesser stress, lesser errors and the economic gains due to efficient utilization of facilities.



BASIC & SECONDARY EDUCATION Board Resolution No. 5, S. 2010 had confirmed and approved that the Elementary and Secondary Departments per consultation shall be under the College of Education and direct supervision of its Dean.

A child is most receptive to learning is during its early period of puerility and these are manifested though rudimentary skills and talents that should be nurtured. This was again demonstrated during the National Arts Celebration held in February where pupils of the WMSU-ILES competed in the various arts contest showing-off their individual talents in poetry, theater, music and declamation. Grade levels from one to six participated in the arts and culture affair.

SECONDARY EDUCATION Also under the College of Education, the High School Department is maintaining its secondary education standards by providing enrichment programs in English, Mathematics and Science. The programs are intended for fast-learners thus reinforcing and honing their knowledge and capabilities on the basics of the fields mentioned. On the other hand, remedial programs were made accessible to slow-learners after initial assessment. Both programs were consulted and approved by the Parents Teachers Association of the department. Complementing pupil-based learning, the Secondary Department has delegated its faculty to several trainings and conferences viewed as essentials for the full development of its faculty.

HEALTH & PHYSICAL EDUCATION In the field of sports and recreation, the College of Physical Education, Recreation and Sports have innovated favorable schemes for physical science and physical education freshman students. The Proficiency Examination for Advance Credit (PEAC) had been in place since the past year primarily to accommodate students proficient in sports and dance who need not take the required physical education courses. The result was enrolled units with the economics entailing in not attending these courses in addition to diverted study hours intended for other priority subjects. Another special student admission scheme which authorizes the college through the Office of the Director, Sports and Fitness Department is the Varsity Athletic Admission Program (VAAP) which entitles freshman students a shot at studying at the university without the required qualifying examination. The mechanism involves popular sports physical tryouts overseen by competent coaches and attitude screening among others. Students admitted through the VAAP shall serve as representatives in athletic competitions at the local, regional, national and even international levels.

AGRICULTURE, FORESTRY & NATURAL RESOURCES Established in 2007, the Bunguiao Eco-Farm Park, overseen by the College of Agriculture, is a training demonstration of Integrated Organic Farming System located in Barangay Bunguiao. The park showcases economically viable and environmentally sustainable farming techniques for promotion, replication and mass reproduction. It also provides training provisioned with training quarters and materials for farming households on livelihood cottage industries like food delicacy manufacturing, small-land farming methods and backyard livestock raising. As a sub-component of the BEFP project, the Organic Fertilizer Enhancement Project is distinctly focusing on organic fertilizer production through the vermicompost and fermentation natural molecular level break-down process. The product is most suited to vegetable farming and fruit trees agriculture and other high values crops needing small spatial requirements and corresponding agricultural inputs. Shifting to the urban setting, the College of Agriculture launched its Urban CommunityBased Piggery Project. The project supports the current administrations campaign for productivity and profitability while addressing the Millennium Development Agenda of Poverty Alleviation, Education, Gender Equality and Environmental Sustainability. It was intended to heighten community awareness and interest on applicable and sustainable farm-based livelihood in urban areas through provision of appropriate tools and technical know-how. Not limited to livestock, another communitybased project High Value Commercial Crops Resource and Learning Facility Project was established in seven sitios of Bunguiao with a combined land area of 11.5 hectares planted with Durian, Rambutan, Lakatan Banana and Lanzones as showcase. The projects hope to establish a permanent community-based learning facility that demonstrates farmer-friendly, hands-on sustainable and responsible farming system technologies. Target recipients are community households with the sole purpose of economic upliftment through self-sustaining agri-venture resulting to increased household income and overall life improvement. In coordination with the Office of the City Veterinarian, the college implemented the Animal Dispersal Program at communities of Bunguiao. A total of 65 animals were dispersed since 2007 and at present, there are 124 piglets and goats ready for distribution. Another subsidiary project of the BEFP is the Integrated Organic Farming System (IOFS) Resource Utilization which focuses on the production and promotion of herbal and medicinal plant derivative products. The project aims at optimizing resources by shifting to safe, effective and cheap homemade medicines for household use. This was in view of the popularity of commercial herbal medicines that have gained entry into mainstream health and self-medication practices. Lastly, the college launched training program modules for Out-of-School-Youths (OSYs) who desire to become productive elements of the community. Short courses on Horticulture were offered with training standards akin to TESDA NC-II rendering the course at a certified level.
