BA­COLOR— Third District Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Aure­lio “Dong” Gon­za­les, Jr. and Don Hono­rio Ven­tura Tech­no­log­i­cal State Uni­ver­sity (DHVTSU) pres­i­dent En­rique Bak­ing for­mally led the un­veil­ing of the maker high­light­ing the con­ver­sion of DHVTSU into a state uni­ver­sity some seven years ago.

The un­veil­ing was held last De­cem­ber 9, the an­niver­sary of the con­ver­sion. The un­veil­ing co­in­cided with the visit of Gon­za­les to in­spect the var­i­ous in­fra­struc­ture works in­side DHVTSU and the oath tak­ing of DHVTSU Par­ent Teach­ers Or­ga­ni­za­tion from all the cam­puses of the state uni­ver­sity be­fore the solon.

It could be re­mem­bered that DHVTSU, for­merly Don Hono­rio Ven­tura Col­lege of Arts and Trade, be­came a state uni­ver­sity on De­cem­ber 09, 2009 un­der Repub­lic Act 9832 through Gon­za­les’s ini­tia­tive in Congress. In June 2009, Gon­za­les filed House Bill No 6319, An Act Con­vert­ing DHVCAT into Don Hono­rio Ven­tura Tech­no­log­i­cal State Uni­ver­sity.

This was then co-spon­sored by Ju­nie E. Cua, Ex­e­qi­uel B. Javier, Jeus Crispin C. Remulla, Marcelino Teodoro, and Cyn­thia A. Vil­lar. Se­nate Bill 3306 was spon­sored by Se­na­tor Manuel M. Lapid in the third and fi­nal read­ing; and co-spon­sored by Sen­a­tors Edgardo J. An­gara, Miguel F. Zu­biri, and the Chair­man for the Se­nate Com­mit­tee on Ed­u­ca­tion Mar A. Roxas.

The con­ver­sion of the Don Hono­rio Ven­tura Col­lege of Arts and Trades into Don Hono­rio Ven­tura Tech­no­log­i­cal State Uni­ver­sity of­fi­cially took ef­fect on De­cem­ber 9, 2009 when then Pres­i­dent Glo­ria Ma­ca­pa­gal Ar­royo signed Repub­lic Act 9832 at the Don Hono­rio Ven­tura Col­lege of Arts and Trades, now known as the Don Hono­rio Ven­tura Tech­no­log­i­cal State Uni­ver­sity.

As part of the state uni­ver­sity’s task of pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tion in the re­gion, it had ex­panded into three cam­puses to bet­ter serve stu­dents in Pam­panga. To­day the Mex­ico, Po­rac and Santo To­mas cam­puses con­tinue to op­er­ate un­der the DHVTSU brand of ed­u­ca­tion.
