A certain land owner, George Ramos, recently offered to CTU Cebu City Mountain Campus (CCMC) his 4.6-hectare property in Sitio Bandila to be developed for agriculture as well as to have space for the campus’ agriculture building.
In an interview, Campus Director Patrobinson Salumag sees it as an opportunity to expand the new satellite campus, focusing more on the livelihood of the people in the area alongside materializing the facility he finds essential for the students.
Ramos proposed a 25-year contract for CTU to do organic farming and other activities relative to the program as constructing a facility, which is either renewable or for acquisition.
His profound regard on agriculture promotion poses relevance to the direction of a campus situated far from the city.
Dr. Salumag now finds himself busy complying with the 3-year development plan initially sought, streamlining the campus’ strategies to ensure productivity.
The property is a 15-minute drive from the campus’ new location in Brgy. Babag after moving from Brgy. Bonbon. UICP
