Carlos Hilado Memorial State University (CHMSU) joins the ranks of institutions, companies, groups, and individuals who have committed to promote the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through education, a press release from the university said.

President Norberto Mangulabnan signed the SDG Accord last  May 31. CHMSU is now among the 385 institutions, 67 students’ unions, and 2,022 individuals globally who have signed the accord.

By signing, CHMSU recognizes the indivisible and interconnected nature of the universal set of goals – People, Prosperity, Planet, Partnership, Peace.

As an academic institution, CHMSU also has a responsibility to play a central and transformational role in attaining the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

CHMSU is not new to the SDGs, said Director Rhoderick Samonte of the Center for Internationalization and External Relations.

“The UN Sustainable Development Goals have been embedded in our curriculum as well our research and innovation, extension, and flagship programs,” Samonte said.

By signing the accord, the university strengthens its commitment to sustainable development even beyond 2030, he added.

CHMSU, similar to other signatories, will align all major efforts with the SDGs, targets and indicators, including through our education, research, leadership, operational and engagement activities.

The university will also aim to involve members from all key stakeholder groups in this endeavor, including students, academics, professional staff, local communities and other external stakeholders.

It will also collaborate across cities, regions, countries and continents with other signatory institutions as part of a collective international response.

Using its own unique ways, CHMSU will inform, share our learning and account to both local and global communities our progress toward the SDGs.

Lastly, the university will also submit an annual report on how the institution contributes to the SDGs along with plans for the following year.*
