SPUP’s 75th Commencement Exercises on June 17, 2017 highlighted the theme: “Global Competencies in the 3rd Millennium: Opportunities and Challenges.” The occasion celebrated the academic success of Batch 2017.

The Baccalaureate Mass was presided by Msgr. Edgar Agcaoili (Vicar General, Archdiocese of Tuguerao) and was concelebrated by Fr. Noel Sibbaluca, Fr. Macario Malano Jr. and Fr. Adalbert Barut. In his homily, Msgr. Agacaoili challenged the graduates to be “Salt and Light” of the world. “As salt serves as preservative, Paulinian graduates are called to preserve the world from corruption and hatred; while, as light, graduates are called to be beacons of hope and faith as testimony to Paulinian Education,” he said. The Eucharistic Celebration also incorporated the solemn Rite of Mission Sending. As the graduates prayed for their Missionary Promises, the congregation imparted their blessings on them.

At the University Grandstand, the Graduation Ceremonies was made meaningful by the Commencement Address of Dr. Yung-Lung Lee (President, Chang Jung Christian University, Taiwan) read by Dr. Huey-Min Sun (Vice President, Chang Jung Christian University, Taiwan). In his message, Dr. Lee narrated how Chang Jung Christian University (CJCU) hurdled challenges from its humble beginnings to the present; while, it continues to position itself as a premier educational institution in Taiwan. Accordingly, the success of CJCU is the result of looking-forward vision and faith in God. He emphasized that values are at the core of global competencies. It is because of this that students are ought to learn to love God, love people and treasure natural and cultural resources.

In the Graduation Rites, Sr. Ma. Althea Alfonso, SPC (Master of Arts in Education) led the Graduates' Prayer. Chester Karl Manuel (BS Secondary Education, Cum Laude) read the address of petition followed by the presentation of the graduates by Dr. Agripina Maribbay (VP Academics).

SPUP welcomed Dr. Huey-Min Sun, the Vice President and Dr. Yiwen Yen, the Dean, Office of General Affairs of Chang Jung Christian University (CJCU), Tainan, Taiwan on June 15, 2017. Sr. Merceditas Ang, SPC, led the University Administrators in the reception of the officials of SPUP’s partner University.

On June 16, 2107, the said CJCU Officials visited the Community Extension Projects of SPUP. They visited the Science Agri-based Entrepreneurial High School (SABEHS), the SPUP-High School Extension at San Jose, Baggao, Cagayan. Under the Alternative Learning System (ALS) of the Department of Education (DepEd), the SABEHS serves as a mission school of SPUP which caters to the children of farmers - poor but deserving students in the region. They are trained to learn new techniques in agriculture and entrepreneurship while attending the required subjects in high school. The visitors gave souvenirs and looked into how they could also help in the facilities of the school.

They also visited two successful community extension projects of SPUP relative to sustainability and development: Barangay Tagga and the Larion Bajo (both in Tuguegarao City). They were impressed with the success story of Community Health Organization in Barangay Tagga. These are the women’s group who were empowered initially by the School of Nursing in terms communication skills, health skills and character building but who later on accepted the responsibility of leading the community by uplifting the quality of life in their area. In fact, some of the members were not only recognized in Tuguegarao City but they have also won regional and national contests due to their commitment to service for their people.

Another women’s group that sustained for 25 years was the Pattaradday of Larion Bajo. Their major activities are micro-lending, values formation, women empowerment and cooperative formation. In fact, they related how the members were just ordinary wives who did not have any income at all and how they were simply dependent on their husbands. With the help of the SPUP, they were trained to become value-laden individuals who were responsible for their own businesses and who also helped in developing and helping other people. From the little amount that was loaned to them, they were able to let it grow into a million- business despite setbacks and short-term problems.

These two organizations had attested to the help of SPUP which was initially headed by Dr. Anne Talosig (Associate Dean of Nursing), and later on sustained by the Community Development Center of SPUP. They stressed that they were aided in building their personalities and commitment for the good of others. They related a common story of humble beginnings but their continual rise was due to the development of an inner strength. Due to these reasons, the women groups are now holding key roles in community building.

These caught the interest of Dr. Yung-Lung Lee, CJCU President, who asked through his representatives, Dr. Sun and Dr. Yen if CJCU could learn from SPUP their methods so they could also adapt the same in their own community services for Tainan, Taiwan.

(CJCU and SPUP are active partners of both student and faculty academic and cultural exchange programs.)
