The College of Social and Community Development held a conference entitled CSWCD Gender Conference: Towards a Community Engaged Scholarship on April 23, 2012 at the CSWCD Library. Thirty-four CSWCD constituents participated in the event. The program started with a dance exercise followed by a sumptuous breakfast courtesy of the April and May birthday celebrants. Dean Rosalinda P. Ofreneo welcomed the participants and thanked the conference committee for organizing the event.
The activity served as a venue for the different clusters to review and set their research and extension agenda for the next two years which formed the basis for the College’s R & E agenda. The five clusters are Disaster Risk Reduction, Migration, Social Protection and Peace and Governance.
The presenters were Prof. Rainier Almazan, who gave the highlights of the Omnibus Research Manual and Ms. Josie Rolle who talked about the CSWCD research outputs from the year 2009-2011. Dr. Ma. Theresa V. Tungpalan synthesized the conference by reviewing the participants’ expectations, looking into what were achieved in the set objectives and what else to be done.
Prof. Jocelyn T. Caragay and Dr. Emmanuel M. Luna served as moderators.
