The Carlos Hilado Memorial State College was among the 19 state universities and colleges that received a P23 million grant for its Smart Campus Development Project, during a press conference on smart campus projects and updates on limited face-to-face classes, initiated by the Commission on Higher Education via Zoom recently.
The CHEd press conference was attended by the 19 SUCs that have fully complied with the requirements for the smart campus project, a press release from CHMSC said.
CHEd chairman Prospero de Vera III explained the objectives of the smart campus initiatives, and said that Congress has allocated more funds under the Bayanihan 3.
Among the 19 SUCs, only four, among them the CHMSC, were presented during the press conference due to limited time.
Norberto Mangulabnan, SUC president III of CHMSC, said the smart campus development project will focus on a system-wide development of the ICT infrastructure of all four campuses, namely, Alijis Campus and Fortune Towne Campus in Bacolod City, Binalbagan Campus in the municipality of Binalbagan, and the main campus in Talisay City.
“Through this smart campus development project, we envision to provide a more effective and efficient centralized framework that links systems and make it easy to teach, learn, and do things better,” Mangulabnan added.*
