“Being the country’s national university, UP is mandated by Philippine law to lead As a public service university by providing various forms of community, public and volunteer service, as well as scholarly and technical assistance to the government, the private sector and civil society while maintaining its standards of excellence.” The succeeding creation of RCE Cebu in 2006, the first RCE in the Philippines and of which UP Cebu was central node and secretariat, was thus an excellent opportunity for the University to realize not only its mission of teaching and research but also of community engagement by creating a multisector network of partners and stakeholders for the promotion of sustainable development.”
