Pepito passionately emphasized the crucial role of language preservation during the momentous signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Sentro ng Wika at Kultura (SWK) and the Kultura at Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino, held on March 25, 2026, at the QA function room in the CTU – Administrative Building.

Initiated by Dr. Jesum Pitogo, the University Director of SWK, the MoU signing event garnered support from key stakeholders, including University President Dr. Joseph C. Pepito, Dr. Ramel Genobiagon, Campus Director, Dr. Edwin Andaya, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Filipino faculty members, and students alike.
