The CTU, with extension services as one of its four-fold functions, aims to provide the small, marginalized communities of the province of Cebu the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills for sustained productivity, profitability, and well-being. In line with the government’s thrust to mobilize knowledge and technology towards generating employment and reducing poverty, our university has been actively conducting extension programs that contribute to attaining the country’s development goals.
To help achieve the vision, mission, goals, and thrusts, the university also continually strives to create extension programs which are relevant and responsive to the needs of the community and society. For this purpose, an Evaluation of Project Proposals is conducted once a year to determine funding allocation.
• Conduct extension programs responsive to the community’s dynamic needs for sustainable development, fulfilling CTU’s social responsibility directions.
• Organize and support extension programs that are consistent with CTU’s mandated and priority programs
• Determine GAA Funding allocation for extension programs based on the requirements of the SUC Levelling Instrument and other performance evaluation measures (such as QS, THE, and PQA).
