CSU builds global links
Tuguegarao City (23 February) -- The Cagayan State University (CSU) has established linkage globally with different universities and colleges in order to evolve into an international university specializing in academic and extension undertakings.
University President Dr. Roger P. Perez said the scholar tie-up with the Kosin University (KU) in Busan, South Korea by way of an exchange program is becoming stronger.
As of now, CSU has 3 students studying the Korean culture and language, and 1 faculty teaching English subject in Kosin University at the expense of KU, while some students of KU are also in CSU to observe and immerse with CSUans.
Perez also said a community radio station will soon be established in Lagum, Penablańca to be funded by the Kosin University. We are also working on a sisterhood program with them to enable us to offer a dentistry course at CSU, he added.
Other than KU, CSU has also linked with Beijing, China accepting some 120 Chinese students in consortium with the Manila Business College (MBC). The students are now enrolled in different graduate courses at MBC.
Perez also said they will also start tying-up with Hongkong also in partnership with MBC, to offer graduate courses.
He explained that due to the distance of Manila to Cagayan, they send professors from CSU to MBC to undertake the program.
MBC believes in giving quality education to enable individuals become competent and dedicated in the upliftment of the social and economic status of graduates to become responsive to the needs of times. Its vision is to continuously develop into an international university specializing in Business and Computer Education.
Other links are the University of Kerala in India, and the HCMI in USA that recruits dedicated and hardworking healthcare professionals for its clients. HCM is among the most respected Healthcare Institutions in the USA. It operates its global healthcare professional's recruitment network through its offices in Canada, USA, Singapore, India and Philippines.
Furthermore, CSU was also chosen by the University of the Philippines for its Open University (UPOU), established as the fifth constituent university in the University of the Philippines System.
Its mandate is to provide education opportunities to individuals aspiring for higher education and improved qualifications but who are unable to take advantage of traditional modes of education.
"Cagayan State University with its partnership with UPOU is currently the only learning center in the region for UPOU students," Perez said.
Meantime, CSU now has 10 Indian, 8 Nepalist, 3 Pakistani, 2 Kenyans, 2 Nigerians, 1 German and 1 American students enrolled in different courses.
Perez said the effort in pushing the internalization program of CSU aims to achieve a globally competitive standard of education in academics, research, extension and production. (PIA Cagayan) [top]
