Vow­ing to steer the pre­mier state univer­sity in MI­MAROPA re­gion to ex­cel in sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion, Dr. Ra­mon M. Docto fi­nally took his oath as the 8th Palawan State Univer­sity (PSU) Pres­i­dent on Oc­to­ber 24, 2018.

In his in­vesti­ture rites, Docto an­nounced his goals and vi­sions for the univer­sity on his term and said that PSU is ex­pected to ex­cel on the fields of sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy while gain­ing val­ues and pos­i­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics.

“PSU is ex­pected to gen­er­ate new knowl­edge and its ap­pli­ca­tion, train and nur­ture to be­come pro­fes­sion­als espe­cially on the well-gen­er­at­ing fields of sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion. This should be done with­out los­ing val­ues, so­cial con­scious­ness, con­cern for the en­vi­ron­men­tal, deep sense for oth­ers and ac­ces­si­bil­ity to those who needed most,” said Dr. Docto.

He added that PSU is also ex­pected to pro­vide fully-equipped and knowl­edge­able grad­u­ates who are highly com­pet­i­tive. “Among the goals and vi­sion, is to ex­pand PSU in the cre­at­ing, ver­i­fy­ing, ap­ply­ing and dis­sem­i­nat­ing knowl­edg and tech­nolo­gies, pro­duc­ing glob­ally com­pet­i­tive grad­u­ates, fully equipped with knowl­edge, skills,

at­ti­tude and habits that is re­spon­sive in the work­place and be­yond.”

Dr. Docto said that the suc­cess of PSU will be through his “4’R’s” tech­nique which means Re­tain, Re­vise, Re­ject and Re­new.

He also men­tioned some in­di­ca­tors of suc­cess af­ter his 4-year term, which in­cludes ef­fe­cient ad­min­is­tra­tive ser­vices, more ca­pa­bly rec­og­nized re­search and ex­ten­sion and other more.
