CPAf Dean Rolando T. Bello and Dr. Emely Dicolen met with Prof. Kisu Kim on April 9, 2019 to discuss the details of partnership, specifically on the Saemaul Undong short-term training for CPAf students, faculty, and partner-agencies. Prof. Kim is the Dean of the Park Chung Hee School of Policy and Saemaul (PSPS) of Yeungnam University in South Korea. Also discussed is the opportunity of sending students as scholars to take the MS degree in International Development with focus on Saemaul Undong.

Saemaul Undong, according to the Korea Saemaul Undong Center, refers to any community development movement, which builds a village or community to improve villagers’ quality of life based on the spirits of diligence, self-help and cooperation, and approaches by the villagers, of the villagers and for the villagers. Saemaul Undong is also based on self-reliant decision-making through the process of planning, implementation, evaluation, and feedback to the next phase.

In April 2018, UPLB Chancellor Fernando C. Sanchez, Jr. and Yeungnam University President Sur Gil-soo signed a memorandum of understanding between CPAf and PSPS for collaborative activities in academic areas of interest.
