NAVAL, Biliran– The newly-installed president of the Biliran Province State University (BiPSU) vowed to chart a new direction anchored on WoW (Weaving of Worthiness) BiPSU 2.0, which aims to bring more development and progress of the lone higher educational institution in the province over the next four years of his administration.
Dr. Victor C. Cañezo Jr., the 5th president of the university, envisioned the institution under the WoWBIPSU 2.0 to become an internationally-recognized school responsive to the needs of both local and global communities.
Cañezo transformed the university’s core values bearing the acronym BiPSU: Brilliance (we excel at what we do), Innovation (we think outside the box), Progress (we go beyond better), Service (we help change lives), and Unity (we work as a team).
He emphasized that with the intergenerational fairness framework as a guide, WoWBiPSU 2.0 will create a robust human resource management system and a smart campus environment that embraces hybrid learning (HyFlex) and borderless educational methods to foster innovation and efficiency.
The WoWBiPSU 2.0 will establish valuable international collaborations to broaden the horizons of students and faculty and enhance their global mobility and opportunities. This also includes the delivery of industry-responsive curricula, which aim to enhance the employability of the university’s graduates locally and internationally.
In addition, it will create future research innovations, data-driven and community-focused extension programs, student support services, and micro, medium, and macro-level strategies that aim to empower students and employees to excel academically and professionally.
Some notable accomplishments in his term included the implementation of billion-worth infrastructure projects, remarkable strides in licensure examinations that produced some top-notchers, impactful research, and others.
The university will open new programs such as BS Public Health, BS Midwifery, BS Industrial Security, BS Data Science and Cybersecurity, and the College of Law.
Among those who attended the investiture ceremonies were the presidents of the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC) in Eastern Visayas, along with other university presidents from the Visayas and Luzon, some international partners, top regional and provincial officials (both appointive and elective), BiPSU officials, faculties, students, retirees, family members of Cañezo, and well-wishers.
