CENTER FOR COMMUNITY AND EXTENSION PROGRAMS
The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) was created by Virtue of RA 7722 otherwise known as Higher Education Act of 1994. Under this law, the CHED formulated the Higher Education Development Plan wherein the trifold functions of HEIs are Instruction, Research and Extension.
It is in this light that the Center for Community Extension and Outreach Programs (CCEOP) was created. It is the social accountability arm of the institution and one of the vital components in the institution’s programs to attain relevant and significant quality education. The CCEOP is also the expression of PLT College’s vision and mission which highlights the commitment to reach out to the poor and marginalized members of the communities bringing together the professional know-how and varied wherewithal of the school community towards nation building and for the promotion of the welfare and affluence of God’s creation.
Cognizant to this, the CCEOP has organized programs and activities in order to address and sustain the goals and objectives set forth. The institution had started implementing some of the programs, however, the institution needs collaborative partnership with GOs. POs, NGOs and other civic- minded organizations to enhance its capacity in delivering and managing such programs and activities.
We envision a center which is committed to be of service to the poor, the marginalized, and the deranged sectors of the society.
To reach out to the poor, the less fortunate and the marginalized sectors of the community and provide them with integrated programs and services that would cater to their needs and problems in order to uplift the quality of their living condition.
