CHED pursues programs for national development

by ES Subong

Iloilo City (23 April) -- Commission on Higher Education Chairman (CHED) Carlito Puno told the media in Iloilo City recently that CHED is zeroing in on national development as the ultimate goal of higher education.

Chairman Puno said CHED is espousing several programs along this line. There is the cross border education which aims to make the Philippines more of a receiving country rather than a sending one.

Puno said he has undertaken aggressive campaign to promote Philippine Colleges and Universities to South Koreans, Chinese and Indian students to study in the country, capitalizing on relatively cheaper cost of education and cultural affinity being Asians.

The response has been positive, according to Puno and it is expected that some 700 medical students from India will enroll in Philippine Medical Schools, about 500 in veterinary medicine and some 200 licensed medical doctors will be having their residency training here in the country.

Chairman Puno also called for a shift in framework on research and development of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) from conceptual to applied researches in consonance with the super region approach of development by the Arroyo Administration.

He said matured technology should boost entrepreneurship to optimize the income of the different HEIs to become financially competitive and maximize their contribution in propelling economic development.

Puno also acknowledged the support of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on higher education by increasing funds for facultu development, research, scholarship and financial assistance to deserving but poor students. (PIA 6) [top]
