During the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) together with the International Wound Ostomy Continence Nursing Education Program (WOCNEP) on April 29.

Dear Centralian family,


The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) together with the International Wound Ostomy Continence Nursing Education Program (WOCNEP) on April 29 marks a significant milestone, as it becomes a pioneering program in the Philippines, hosted here at CPU. Our university is leveraging its international collaborations to make a global impact, establish research networks, and develop innovations.

On the same day, we warmly welcomed visitors from the University of Southern Mindanao-Kidapawan City Campus (USM-KCC) for a benchmarking activity. Aside from our international collaborations, CPU also expands local partnerships and opens the door for exchanging ideas to foster and develop best practices in the delivery of quality education and services.

We were invited to take part in the annual celebration of National Filipino Food Month with the theme, “Kalutong Filipino, Lakas ng Kabataang Makabago” by the NCCA and Iloilo City Government. Engr. Bernie C. Cangrejo  led a seminar on packaging development at Festive Walk Mall.  On April 30, we both spoke at the Gastronomy and Sustainable Food Systems Conference held at JR Hall, Diversion 21 Hotel. Sustainable Packaging as it relates to food is no longer an option for us as we move into the future. So much is at stake, and at Central Philippine University, we are making a commitment to contribute to the solution rather than add to the problem.

On May 3, we participated in a conference about anti-vaping.  This was an initiative of the Iloilo City Anti-Smoking Task Force (ICAST), led by its Executive Director, Iñigo Garingalao, who is an alumnus. In addition to enhancing the general health and well-being of our academic community, CPU aims to create a smoke-free campus that is more conducive to learning and provides an ideal working environment for everyone.

For the past month, CPU celebrated the successes of students who took the board examinations administered by the Professional Regulatory Commission.  Congratulations to our Centralians for passing the following board examinations for April 2024: Electronics Technician Licensure Exam (ECTLE), Electronic Engineer (ECE) Board Exam, Physician Licensure Exams (PLE), Pharmacist Licensure Exams (PHLE), Civil Engineer Licensure Exam (CELE), Registered Master Electrician Licensure Exam (RMELE), and Registered Electrical Engineer Licensure Exam (REELE). Thank you for bringing honor to your Alma Mater! We are so proud of you!

Let us keep moving forward and achieve greater heights – for the good of CPU and the glory of God!
