PIA Press Release

First University of Cagayan Valley prexy installed

by Thelma C. Bicarme

Tuguegarao City (17 September) -- A new dawn has began today at the University of Cagayan Valley UCV), formerly Cagayan Colleges of Tuguegarao (CCT), as Dr. Victor V. Perez took helm as first university president in an investiture attended by Commissioner Nona Ricafort of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Hon. Ira Hapsary Subagio, Attaché for National Education, Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia.

Also attending the ceremony were CHED 2 officials headed by Dir. Evelyn Pascua, Presidents Rosalinda Valdepenas, University of St. Louis, Melvin K. Vargas of the FL Vargas College, Vice President Wilma Guzman of the Medical Colleges of Northern Philippines and Vice President Sister Nicole de Marie Dabalus of the St. Paul University Philippines.

Perez was presented with the symbols of the university such as the seal and flag. A medallion which he will be wearing on official university occasions was also handed to him.

Upon assuming as the university's first president, Dr. Perez said he will work for the university's advancement as center of excellence.

He urged the school officials and students to work hand in hand for the fulfillment of the university's vision to empower the individual through quality education and values formation.

Perez likewise thanked the national government agencies, private institutions and the community for their continued support to the university.

The UCV, formerly known as Cagayan Teachers College (CTC) was founded in April 1948. Its course offerings during its first year of academic operation (1948-49) were limited to Elementary Teacher's Certificate and Bachelor of Science in Education.

Because it was felt that the old name, CTC was no longer suitable considering the fact that the Institution has begun to offer other courses other than teaching, the Board of Trustees in 1983 amended Article II of the original Articles of Incorporation to change the Institution's name to Cagayan Colleges Tuguegarao.

Today, UCV has now two campuses (Balzain and College Avenue) and is now offering Basic Education, Terminal programs, Ladderized Education, Baccalaureate degrees, Post Baccalaureate and Graduate School programs. (PIA 2) [top]
