Dr. Mardy Verano, the resource speaker of the community needs assessment

The Cebu Technological University (CTU) organized the community needs assessment, its process and strategies on September 28-30, 2021. 

As per CTU Memorandum No. PI21-386 s. 2021, the writeshop aimed to guide the community extension team to identify community-defined need and crafting the best solutions possible. It was facilitated by Dr. Mardy D. Verano.

Community extension professionals from different campuses were opt to clarify the community’s needs, conceptualize the needs assessment process and strategies, craft appropriate tools and methods for the assessment, and use the needs-based data in translating them into extension project proposals intended to provide solutions to the stakeholders. 

With the vision to be a community responsive and a sustainable technological university, linking this vision into activities especially to its constituents, the community itself, was already a good contribution in transforming knowledge into service and immersions and be a globally-recognized institution.-Juliet Villamor, BSDevCom Intern
