MALAYBALAY CITY– In preparation for its long-term plans, Bukidnon State University officials geared up for a future-proof university during the four-day Strategic Development Planning Workshop on August 23-26, 2022.
The said activity focus on the theme: Strategic Foresight for a Future-Proof BukSU.
The first day of workshop took place in BukSU mini theater which was attended by university top officials. For the next three days, the workshop venue was held at N Hotel, Kauswagan Highway, Cagayan de Oro City.
Dir. Mylah Faye Aurora B. Cariño of NEDA-X, one of the keynote speakers, said that one way of improving planning is ensuring the alignment of our plans with that of the regional and national aspirations.
“We have to be always on the lookout for opportunities to improve the way we do things including planning,” she said.
In the greater scheme of things, she added, the bigger mandate is really to prepare a human resource that is nimble, agile, mobile, and competent. This human resource will be the base that would allow us to attain further development.
“Excellence is not a destination. The pursuit of excellence should be a daily aspiration for all of us including excellence in planning,” she said.
She also added that one must implement strategies and policies by translating these into specific programs and projects. The programs and projects, she said, make up the investment program and it should be the basis of the budgeting.
Dr. Joy M. Mirasol, Vice-President for Research Extension, and Innovations, discussed the salient points from the keynote speakers as input to BukSU’s strategic development plans which include the opportunities and threats from Prof. Decolongan’s Future Thinking Application Foresight.
She highlighted two opportunities for BukSU which are to explore new markets, new products, and services, which means offering our priority courses.
On internationalization, she identified it as our opportunity of having grants and linkages and threats would be foreign competitors top of local competitors in terms of course equivalency, faculty profile, ease of doing business, quality of education, and availability of needed infrastructure and growing demand.
Dr. Hazel Jean M. Abejuela, Vice-President for Academic Affairs, also presented the revisiting of the mission, vision, and core values of BukSU.
She emphasized that the university is an institution that is ambitious and will be remarkable in the future. She ended her presentation by saying, “If the plan doesn’t work, we change our strategies and not our vision.”
On the following day, the different units presented their strategic goals and objectives.
Engr. Desiderio R. Apag III then gave his valuable insights and suggestions for BukSU’s improvement.
Mr. Dante S. Victoria Jr., also presented the articulation of BukSU’s strategic direction.

For the year 2023, Engr. Amber Paguray, Head of BukSU’s Planning and Development Unit, said that the Strategic Development Planning will be presented to the new administration for more inputs and enhancements.
“We hope that by this we would be sort of future-ready for our new BukSU…a future-proof BukSU,” he said. Strategic Planning is a crucial process for the institution as it sets the direction of the university for the next 5 years. Workshop outputs from the activity will serve as the fundamental guidebook of the university. (Diana Rose B. Lagoy/OP-IPS)
