3 centers of excellence 500px

“GaLING Science, GAling Science.” For years, this has been the tagline of the College of Science. True enough, this has been articulated through the quality of its graduates as well as its achievements and recognitions. In fact, it is the first in the university which received the Level 4 accreditation in most of its program offerings as awarded by PACU-COA.

This year, Science leads again as the only College with three programs designated as Centers of Excellence by the Commission on Higher Education. Psychology, which used to be Center of Development is now Center of Excellence while the Biology and Chemistry Programs retain their COE status in a CHED Memo Order No. 38 s. 2015. Said status is valid from January 1st of this year until December 31, 2018.
