To produce competitive and innovative graduates imbued with a high sense of moral values
and commitment to nation building with the support of our competent roster of faculty and
administrators is the main thrust in sustaining the gains, and expanding competencies for
sights beyond borders is the rewarding year-end finish of 2012.

Our developmental programs, trainings, workshops, conferences and enrolment in further

studies have been given more emphasis this year that eventually strengthened the capabilities
of our faculty as demonstrated in the increased number of them finishing masters and doctorate
degrees compared to previous years not discounting those who are still doing graduate and
post-graduate work. Another factor is the quality of our curricular offerings. Arrangements
to revise curricular programs consistent with the Philippine Qualifications Framework (PFQ)
have been initiated just as K-12 preparedness plans have been put in place to respond to the
requirements of such enhancement. The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) has likewise been
authorized to offer new courses: one in English and two in Education departments.

These, among other initiatives have helped uphold recognitions from the Commission on
Higher Education (CHED) as Centers of Excellence and Development in the Education, Sciences
and Mathematics programs even as accreditations of programs given by the Accrediting Agency
of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACUP) are likewise sustained.

Effects of these are manifested in the continued generation of top performers in Professional
Regulation Commission Board licensure examinations, with high passing averages compared to
the national rate. Honors continue to pour in due to the excellent performances of students and
the faculty in various competitions here and abroad. In November, the School of Engineering
Technology lived up to its reputation by having been recognized in the ASEAN Skills Competition
in the Trade area of Mechatronics. In separate occasions, four professors from the College of
Education, fourteen (14) from the College of Arts and Social Sciences brought accolades for
their exemplary scholarly works read in prestigious international conferences. Students at
the College of Business Administration and Accountancy and the College of Engineering also
benefited from our exchange programs with Philippine-American Education Foundation
(PAEF), World Learning-Department of State and Cultural Affairs, Tohuko University and Japan
East-Asian Network of Exchange for Students and Youth (JENESY) Program 2012.



MSU-IIT ANNUAL Report 2012 5

MSU-IIT ANNUAL Report 2012

During my stewardship, my commitment is for the Institute to begin its journey towards making it
a Research University in the future with the strengthening of the programs of the Office of the Vice
Chancellor for Research and Extension. Recent notable strides include the Institutes membership
to the Philippine Higher Education Research Network (PHERNET) and the recognition of the
countrys first Tuklas Lunas (Filipino for cure discovery) Center by the Philippine Council for Health
and Research and Development of the Department of Science and Technology (PCHRD-DOST). The
Institute has also recently renewed its Engineering Research and Development for Technology
(ERDT) membership, and has secured funds for the expansion of the College of Engineering (COE)

Results, in terms of improving the research culture, are highlighted by the significant increases
of oral and poster presentations both in national and international conferences, publications
in Thomson-Reuters accredited publications, internationally-refereed journals, and our own
refereed publication, our official, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary official journal Mindanao
Forum and its membership in the Philippine E-Journals and in the University of Hawaii at Manoas
Mindanao page.

A number of the oral presentations from the various colleges received prestigious awards.
Proportionate to this is the boost in the number of externally-funded and self-funded researches
from 57 to 96 and 17 to 60, respectively. Notably, the Philippine Council for Health Research and
Development (PCHRD) granted a considerable sum of funding support for the project Extraction
Purification and Preliminary Toxicity and Antioxidant Potential Assessment of the Phytochemicals
for Selected Medicinal Plants in Mindanao.

A most important development is the rise in the number of faculty members engaged in
research in response to the intensified campaign for collaborative works among senior and junior
faculty members and with their international counterparts. In addition, a professorial chair was
conferred to a faculty in the College of Engineering in recognition of exemplary achievement in
the specialized area of Material Science and Engineering Technology.

The Institutes reason for being is not complete without its extension services in order to help
improve the quality of life of its partners in the community. Aside from the established socio-
economic and skills-building programs, the Institute invested in after-care assistance activities
following the devastation of Typhoon Sendong. In coordination with external agencies, the
Institute offered its share in the healing and restoration work for survivors and certain facilities for
them. This has contributed to the rise in the number of services the Institute had provided from
107 in 2011 to 265 this year.

If our emphasis is on Science and Technology, we have not neglected the holistic development of our
constituents, nor have we closed our sights to the cultivation of our humanities programs. One of the
more potent extension service of our Institute is the presence of our eminent cultural groups that
propagate the beauty and significance of our culture and arts through the Integrated Performing Arts
Guild (IPAG), the Octava Choral Society, the Kalimulan Cultural Dance Troupe and the Echoes Band, not
to mention our group of young visual artists and independent film makers whose works have put the
Institute in the countrys cultural map with its partnership with the National Commission for Culture
and Arts under the Office of the President.

As a strong partner in the countrys

human resource development, another
significant part of the Institute is its
continued support of the Iligan National
Writers Workshop (INWW) that is truly
national in character for its accepting
works in several local languages by
some of the countrys gifted writers. I am
proud to say that the INWW has become
the first institutional member of the
AP Writers and Translators Association
whose individual members are eminent
writers from the Asia Pacific rim, and that it counts among its honorary members Nobel Prize winners
for Literature from around the world.

Among the Institutes quest for recognition abroad,

on the other hand, is its support of external
networks and linkages. One is in the form of mutual
cooperation and exchanges such as the agreement
between Taiwans Tunghai Unviersity, Universiti
Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Japans Osaka University
among others. Cooperative undertakings with
industrial partners with the Iligan Light and
Power, Inc. (ILPI) have also opened doors for
immersion activities, studies and researches of
mutual interest. Aside from securing continued scholarship grants and funding sponsorships from
long-standing partners, new sources have been tapped one of which, is the Philippine-Australian
Human Resource and Organisational Development Facility (PAHRODF). Partnerships with civic and
government agencies like the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Region 10 have
also been forged particularly to enhance capabilities for risk and disaster reduction and management.

Administrative support is focused on enhancing systems and optimizing resources to intensify work
efficiency. Process and methods simplification in the Registrars and Admissions offices have facilitated
the speedy delivery of services. On resource allocation, the Institute has already secured funds for the
construction of the Information and Communication Technology Center (ICTC) building that will be
used for an extensive contribution to the educational, research, and economic development of our

Growing in Continued Pursuits for
Excellence in Quality Education

The Institutes journey in 2012 has been remarkable. It has withstood numerous challenges, has pulled its constituents together, and has
provided opportunities for them to work in unison towards achieving the Institutes mission. This is proof that no obstacle, no calamity, natural
or man-made, can impede the Institute from continuously growing.

One of the challenges that has great impact on the Institutes primary function to deliver tertiary level instruction is the implementation of the
K-12 Program. This change in the educational system has caused some wariness to the populace of the Institute. However, MSU-IIT through
the active leadership of the administration and with the commitment of the various colleges and schools, has concentrated its efforts in
preparation for the K-12 Program. An Institute wide Academic Summit 2012-Policy Review and K-12 Planning Workshop has been conducted
specifically for this purpose. Other initiatives have also been done to provide orientations, workshops and trainings for the administrators,
faculty, and staff. The colleges and schools have independently been focusing on reviewing their course offerings and programs that are
relevant in the new educational set up.

Faculty members have also been actively engaged in carefully studying possible changes that may occur to ensure a smooth management
of the K-12 Program. Measures to carefully review faculty requirements are being done to avoid critical turnover of faculty members during
the transition phase. The Faculty Development Program is still in place to make certain that the faculty get the maximum training possible
for them to become highly competent and updated in their fields of expertise especially during these changing times. Aside from these, the
Institute facilities are being visited and evaluated in terms of availability and readiness in servicing the clientele since skill building is given
emphasis in the new curriculum.

In line with the concerted efforts for continuous growth of the various academic units, proper budget utilization is crucial. The Institute has
liberalized the colleges and schools in utilizing budget from GAA, Income, and fiduciary. This practice allows the academic units to exercise
judicious use of budget for the implementation of projects that will further propel growth and development.

The year 2012, like any other year, has been filled with challenges. The journey has never been an easy ride. However, the astounding
dedication and commitment demonstrated by the entire MSU-IIT constituents have been very inspiring that the challenges have become
less overwhelming. The actions and interventions of the administration, the activities of the various colleges and schools, the programs of
the other academic units, and the efforts exerted by every member of the MSU-IIT community have all been coherent and directed towards
achieving the goal of becoming a Research University. And, with the significant growth exhibited by the Institute in 2012, moving forward
and reaching for that dream, does not seem an impossibility.

Acting Institute Registrar

The Registrars Office continually improves its

services to its clientele by formulating policies
and implementing procedures which have been
approved. The systematic delivery of official records
and other documents to graduates and former
students through the Institute Courier Service has
been put in place. This system expedites processing
and delivery of documents to the recipients.

Another feature of the Office is the entry of a

completion grade directly into the e-SMS by the
concerned faculty member within the prescribed
period as mandated by the Board of Regents.
This encourages faculty members to encode the
completion grade on time. The Office has also
created a system to facilitate uploading of pictures
of students for Institutional purposes. The Office
prides itself with the fact that it continues to be
at par with other leading Institutions where new,
faster and more efficient measures are taken to cater
to the needs of the entire MSU-IIT clientele.

Kalimulan Cultural Dance Troupe

Founded and directed by Professor Christian T.N. Aguado, a cultural

Anthroplogist and faculty member of the Department of Sociology, the
Institute resident cultural dance group has been promoting Mindanao
ethnic dances for 25 years. Recognized as the Best Dance Company in the
Philippines by Aliw Organization, the troupe continues to travel to key cities
and municipalities in Mindanao to foster awareness of authentic cultural and
artistic Filipino dance expressions.
