BukSU eyes connections, endless possibilities in int’l efforts 

MALAYBALAY CITY (OP-IPS) Bukidnon State University has seen international activities as opportunities to connect with other learners and institutions across the globe and to open endless possibilities for its stakeholders.

Dr. Oscar B. Cabañelez, university president, said this in his remarks for international events organized by the colleges in April 2022. 

“This international activity is a springboard for BukSU to expand our connections with other educational practitioners, experts from various fields, intuition administrators and other Higher Education Institutions across the globe,” he said.

He said building connections and collaborative engagements with other institutions are necessary and significant because it gives the university the opportunity for knowledge exchange and that learning is more effective if it is multifaceted.

“When we work as one educational community, our students, our stakeholders, will be given arrays of endless possibilities while learning and even after they graduate,” he added.

Dr. Cabañelez thanked the university’s partner institutions in the international events.

“BukSU is grateful for the time and partnership we have built through this engagement. We are excited to be working with your institutions on bringing quality education in our universities,” he added.
