MSU signs cooperation agreement with TESDA to strengthen Pres. Duterte’s poverty alleviation programs


Being the biggest university in Mindanao, and second biggest in the country (the University of the Philippines ranks No. 1), the relative importance of Mindanao State University System (MSUS) as a peace and development instrument of the national government was again highlighted by the signing of a cooperation agreement on July 20, 2016, between Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), represented by Director General Atty. Guiling Ampang Mamondiong and Mindanao State University, represented by President Habib W. Macaayong. Composed of eleven (11) autonomous campuses strategically located in various conflict-affected areas in Mindanao, the MSU System will spearhead the implementation of the various TESDA initiatives that directly address poverty alleviation, a priority project of President Rodrigo R. Duterte in Mindanao.

Gen. Dela Rosa’s MSU Visit as Commencement Speaker: A Nostalgic Homecoming to What Once his Field of Dreams 

by Rebekah M. Alawi

Contrary to Wolfe’s claim that “you can’t go home again”, Gen. Ronald “Bato” M. Dela Rosa, PNP Chief, did come home to MSU last January 25, 2017. As he himself capped his Commencement Address with: “One never really leaves”.

The occasion was the 52nd Commencement Exercises for the First Semester, AY 2016-2017 which saw some 1119 candidates for graduation going onstage for their prized diplomas. It was a long awaited homecoming for the top cop of the country who first came to MSU in the late 1970s and stayed for three years until PMA scholarship lured him to another “ magic mountain” – Baguio – to pursue his dream to become a soldier. That was thirty-five years or so ago.
