The Hospitality Management Department conducts the Mugna sa Kusina not only as an income-generating project but also showcases a feast of flavors to the extensionists and beneficiaries. This is also an avenue for them to promote the local products, such as Doc Dritz Suka and Squash Crackers, the local products produced in the Food Innovation Center of the campus.

The College of Arts and Sciences conducted an extension program to the different elementary schools of DepEd Tuburan I. They brought along with them the projects of the AB English students to be distributed. The story books were translated from English to Sinugbuanong Bisaya, entitled “Palihug Paminawa Mi: Mga Sugilanon sa Kabataan sa Tuburan”. The book was inspired by the stories of the children in Tuburan that vary from suspense, fables, fantasy and myths but full of morals.
These projects are all anchored in the seven principles made by the Education for Sustainability practitioners.
