On January 22, the College of Education celebrates 33 years of serving the students and its surrounding community.

Established in 1985, the College of Education is CHED Center of Excellence in Teacher Education.

Faculty and staff, together with the students, gather in the IDS multipurpose hall to mark the start of a week-long celebration. It begins with the v

iewing of a video montage showing the several milestones the college has reached in its 33rd year. CED has been accredited Level 4 for all its Secondary Education programs, and Level 3 for all Elementary Education programs by AACCUP (Accrediting Agency for Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines). The college is also recognized as the 3rd Performing School in Elementary Level in the Philippines. It also produces 3 top-notchers in the September 2017 Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).

With all these achievements, the guest speaker, Mr. Jerry F. Crausus, Assistant Chief Bureau of Curriculum Development – Dep. Ed. Central Office, reminds everyone not to be overwhelmed by such feat. “We should always know our purpose in teaching and in life”, he stresses.

The celebration culminates with an evening social in January 26, 2018 at MSU-IIT gymnasium where awardees in formal wear receive certificates of recognition. They are composed of distinguished students and faculty who presented research papers in international conferences, published in refereed journals and also those who won in national competitions.
