Brief History

The College of Community Development and Public Administration was one of the pioneering colleges in the Mindanao State University when it opened classes in 1962. Through this college, the University was able to establish linkages with other institution and engaged in several tie-up programs in community development, the only academic program which it initially offered.

The introduction of the new academic programs in Public Administration and Social Work in the 70’s and 80’s respectively gave way to the creation of three separate department and eventually renaming of the college into the present College of Public Affairs.

Since then, to cater to the emerging educational needs of the region, the college has expanded its academic offerings to include graduate courses in Public Administration and Community Development. It has likewise continuously upgraded these curricula both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and produced students who are presently occupied key positions in both GOs and NGOs.

The college has likewise continued to reach out to LGUs, NGOs and POs through research and extension activities in the field of Public Administration, Social Work and Community Development. These activities are made possible through tie-up programs with local and international organizations and funding agencies.


A nation where majority of its citizens are critically aware of and responsible for their identity, rights and obligations as Filipinos who are empowered to participate in the country’s political, socio-economic and cultural development towards a healthy internationally relationship with other countries in the global arena.


As an academic arm of state university tasked to bring about peace and development in the MINSUPALA region, the College of Public Affairs pursues a noble mission to bring about capable, efficient and moral governance, as well as responsive citizenry whether within the government bureaucracy, private sector or grass root communities that would facilitate the transformation of the above vision to reality.
