The Visayas State University towards Sustainability

With its core vision of becoming a globally competitive university of science, technology, and environmental conservation, VSU is one with the United Nations in committing to the fulfillment of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the year 2030.

VSU is currently working to become a National Green University in the Philippines by championing sustainable practices in its five areas of instruction, research, extension, innovation and production services.

An important component of this plan is the integration of sustainable development practices into the curriculum of all undergraduate and graduate degree programs including in all research undertakings and projects, and even in pioneering student-led activities that will mainstream environmental conservation and protection efforts.

VSU is continuously working on promoting sustainable agriculture by investing in better research facilities and world class laboratory equipment to generate groundbreaking technologies and climate-resilient varietal improvements on some of its priority research commodities.

Aside from smart agriculture, the university also aspires to produce innovations that will address different environmental, agricultural, and economic issues that are not confined in its home region of Eastern Visayas but also to the other marginalized communities in different parts of the Philippines.

This site was created by the University Integrated Media Center (UIMC) to document and publicize all the many efforts conducted by the Visayas State University in terms of fulfilling the global goals.
