PROPOSED VISION, MISSION and GOALS of VSU


Vision (Proposed)

  • VSU as premier University of Science and Technology in the Visayas

Mission (Proposed)

  • Development of world-class human capital, scientific knowledge and innovative technology for sustained economic and social transformation

Core Values (Proposed)

1. TRUTH (existing) – The search for truth is the very essence of this academic institution. Pursuit of the truth is the backbone of the scientific process where certainty of results is tested against all known facts to conclude that truth has been uncovered.   An institution that stands by the truth reasons in accordance with facts and realities and projects sincerity in action, character and utterance. The character of an institution is shaped by its ability to stand by the truth and make use of it.

2. INTEGRITY (new in place of “work”) – A firm adherence to an upright moral code and ethical standard is vital in the University’s search for truth. An institution engaged in producing quality human capital and scientific innovation must remain incorruptible in a morally challenging environment.  Integrity is crucial in forging synergistic partnerships between the University and its stakeholders.  Partnerships founded upon integrity practice transparency and mutual trust.

3. RELEVANCE (existing) –The University should continually pursue to contribute to society’s intellectual, cultural and economic progress. Its scientific and technological endeavors should be shaped by the demands of society, either in the form of knowledge in basic sciences or technology derived from applied and developmental researches.

4. EXCELLENCE (new in place of “knowledge”) – An institution should strive for excellence in its unceasing quest for the truth and relevant contributions to society. The stakeholders of the university that includes its students, producers and industries deserve nothing but the best that the institution can offer. An institution that consistently lives by excellent standards in anything that it does is efficient in its search for the truth and delivery of socially-relevant scientific and technological contributions.

GOALS (Proposed):

1) SUSTAINED EXCELLENCE IN INSTRUCTION

Produce highly competent and world-class manpower in science and technology especially for agriculture, environmental management and industries proficient in communication skills, critical thinking, and analytical abilities.

2) HIGHLY INNOVATIVE RD/E SYSTEM AND COMPETITIVE S&T PRODUCTS

Generate and disseminate relevant knowledge and technology that leads to improved productivity, profitability and sustainability in agriculture, environment and industries.

3) ADEQUACY AND SUSTAINABILITY OF RESOURCE GENERATION

Generate adequate resources to support the University’s instruction, research and extension pursuits and physical infrastructure needs in the face of declining government subsidy to SUCs.

4) EFFICIENT, EFFECTIVE AND CLIENT-CENTERED ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT SERVICES

Provide timely, accessible, acceptable and customer-friendly administrative support system that promotes partnership and sense of shared stewardship with students, faculty, alumni and other stakeholders.

5) FUNCTIONAL AND ADEQUATE PHYSICAL FACILITIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE

Provide functional and adequate facilities and support infrastructure essential to a world-class instruction, innovative RD/E, sustainable resource generation, and efficient administration.

The Mulberry Men’s Home occupants won the First Prize in the Search for the Best Vegetable Garden here at the Visayas State University in Baybay City, Leyte.  Seen in the picture are some of the dorm occupants working in their garden early in the morning.  Mr. Randy Omega, the Dorm Adviser, said that managing the “Mulberry Farmville” is a part of their daily cleaning routine.


The current residents of the Mulberry Men’s Home must be following the good examples of the alumni-Mulberrians.  One proof to this is that, in this year’s Search for Best Vegetable Garden, the ‘Mulberry Farmville’ of the Mulberry Men’s Home was chosen as the Best Garden.

The Search for Best Vegetable Garden is under the project, Promoting vegetable production in VSU student dormitories, a collaborative effort of VSU Radio DYAC, Department of Hiroticulture and the East-West Seed Company, Inc. It was launched on 9 January 2010 through a “Hands-on Training on Vegetable Production” held at the Multimedia Development Center.

Under the project, the East West Seed Company, Incorporated provided seeds while VSU, though the Departed of Horticulture (DOH), provided for the soil medium, vermicast, bamboos, polyethylene bags and the technical support needed by the students.

The dorm gardens were evaluated on February 23, 2010 by a panel of judges chaired by Associate Prof. Elizabeth Briones of DOH. Members were  Dr. Rosalia Salas, Associate Professor and Mr. Arsenio Ramos (both from DOH), Ms. Miriam dela Torre of the University Student Services Office (USSO) and Ms. Adelina O. Carreno of VSU Radio DYAC. Criteria for judging were Plant Vigor (45%), Production (45%) and Artistry (10%).

Aside from the Mulberry Men’s Home, the “Mabolo Farmville” by the occupants of the Mabolo Men’s Home, the “Carnation Garden” by the Carnation Cottage and the “Dahlia Garden” by the Dahlia Ladies’ Dorm were also chosen as finalists and each received a cash prize of one thousand pesos (P1,000) from the East West Seed Company.

The awarding of the Best Vegetable Garden 2010 was one of the highlights of the Closing and Awarding Ceremonies of the University Inter-dorm Student Body (UISB) Sports Festival which was held on 28 February  2010 at the VSU New Oval.

Both Dr. Jose L. Bacusmo, President of the Visayas State University and Mr. Joe Villamor, Product Development Support (PDS) Specialist of the East West Seed Company, were pleased with the result of the project. Dr. Bacusmo hopes that the dormitories will make their vegetable production projects sustainable.  Mr. Villamor, on the other hand, said that the east West Seed Company will be very happy to provide the support needed for the dorms to sustain their vegetable projects.

Plans are now underway to implement the project as a regular activity of the dorm occupants. In his recent visit to VSU, Mr. Gerry Vinculado, East-West’s Marketing Supervisor for Regions 7 and 8, said that East-West will continue to provide seeds for the dorm gardens. (MM Cano, DYAC)
