  • 1. Institutional Profile CATANDUANES STATE UNIVERSITY The Catanduanes State University’s beginning dates back to June 18, 1961 when Republic Act 3398, which called for the establishment of Virac National and Agricultural Trade School (VNATS), was enacted.  Ten years thereafter, Republic Act (RA) 6341, which was authored by Congressman Jose U. Alberto, converted VNATS into Catanduanes State Colleges (CSC) on June 19, 1971. CSC consequently started its operation in December 1972 upon the full implementation of RA 6341, which was amended by RA 6590, and later repealed by Presidential Decree No. 1437 on June 10, 1978. On July 22, 1996, the Tenth Congress of the Republic of the Philippines enacted and approved Republic Act No. 8292 which provides for the uniform composition and powers of the governing boards, the manner of appointment and term of office of the president of chartered state universities and colleges, and for other purposes. This Act repealed and amended all laws., presidential decrees, executive orders, letters of instruction and SUC charters contrary to or inconsistent with this law. Pursuant to Special Provision No. 2 of the CHED FY 1999 Budget under the General Appropriations Act of 1999 (R.A. 8745 or the integration of CHED Supervised Institutions to State Universities and Colleges), the Catanduanes Agricultural and Industrial College (CAIC) was integrated to the Catanduanes State Colleges on October 31, 1999. Subsequently, by virtue of Board Resolution No. 15, s. 2003 which called for the implementation of an approved and the Revised Organizational Structure, CSC-CAIC Annex was renamed as CSC Panganiban Campus. The past Presidents of the CSC were Mr. Pedro G. Tabuzo - 1971-1972, Dr. Jacinto A. Medallada - 1972-1986, Dr. Rodolfo V. Asanza - 1986-1990, Dr. Adolfo S. Bagadiong - 1993-2003, and Dr. Asuncion V. Asetre - 2003-2011. Dr. Ernestina P. Averilla was designated by DECS Higher Education Division as CSC-OIC from 1990 1992. On July 14, 2011, Dr. Minerva I. Morales was elected as the 6th President of the Catanduanes State Colleges. When CSC was converted into a University, she was designated by CHED as Officer In-Charge from December 12, 2012 - March 24, 2013 in consonance with the provision of RA 10229. After topping the evaluation in the Search for CSU presidency, she was subsequently elected via unanimous vote by the Board of Regents as the First President of the Catanduanes State University on March 25, 2013. The conversion of CSC into a university formally started on March 29, 2011 when House Bill No. 4170 was filed during the First Regular Session of the 15th Congress of the Philippines. This bill was principally authored by Congressman Cesar V. Sarmiento, and co-authored by Congressman Juan Edgardo M. Angara. Over a year thereafter, President Benigno S. Aquino III signed on October 19, 2012 Republic Act No. 10229 converting Catanduanes State Colleges (Virac/Main and Panganiban Campuses) into Catanduanes State University. At present, the Catanduanes State University is enjoying the prestige of being the only comprehensive higher education institution in Catanduanes. It is also among the dynamic SUCs in Bicol that offers a wide range of academic programs and produces placers in national licensure examinations. And with its new stature, it sets in direction in becoming a green university that is globally engaged in island research and innovations for societal advancement. #
