PSU aims to provide quality instruction in philosophy and the arts, to create a competitive advantage in instruction, research and extension. One specific step toward this direction that the University has taken is the inclusion of Dr. Danilo M. Gerona, an internationally renowned Bicol historian, in its roster of academic scholars. Dr. Gerona commits to build historical data base for Partido and undertake in-depth researches on certain aspects of the District which will become part of the collection of readings of the University.
Academic presentations and discussions are an important component of university life. They provide avenues for intellectual discourse thereby strengthening the culture of scholarly writing and research among faculty, especially in the Graduate School. Listening to presentations of proposed research, results of studies, and instructional materials stimulates and motivates faculty to engage in challenging and high quality research, literature review and designing of instructional tools. It enriches classroom instruction because it provides concrete examples to the theories and concepts discussed in class.
