From its creation in 1998, the then-College of Public Affairs (CPAf) has made its mark in the field of development and governance studies. Through the years, CPAf has produced a significant number of graduates and a body of knowledge along institutional, policy and governance issues in the rural sector, in general, and in the agriculture and natural resources sectors, in particular.
Under a new name and a strong, dynamic “one-faculty-one-college” structure that helps strengthen and sustain its established innovations, the College of Public Affairs and Development now aims to offer more relevant academic programs on development and governance studies.
Dean Josefina T. Dizon presented to CPAf constituents and members of the External Search Committee for the selection of new CPAf Dean her term-end report. Her three-year term will end on January 23, 2016.
Dean Dizon’s term-end report was anchored on CPAf’s vision and mission which was crafted in 2008. She presented the accomplishments related to instruction, research and extension, and administrative matters, including personnel matters, infrastructure developments and budget for the past three years.
