Research and Extension

THE PANPACIFIC UNIVERSITY EXTENSION AGENDA

The Panpacific University (PanpacificU), through the Research & Extension Office (REO), aims to foster and strengthen university-community relationship through mutual cooperation and support of planned extension programs and services.

The University is geared towards the principles of collaboration, convergence of the trifocal functions, and diffusion of impact-driven extension activities. Collaboration is to be attained in its various senses: institutional, individual, collegial, disciplinal, global, and community-based. Convergence emphasizes how extension is closely linked with research and instruction in the University. Extension activities must be research-oriented, knowledge-generating, and could be used in updating students’ learning and in community-building. Last but not the least, the principle of diffusion is observed in the dissemination and publication of impact-driven Extension activities.

Ultimately, the goal of the University in institutionalizing this extension agenda is the University’s increase of extension activity productivity, visible impact and relevance, enhancement of extension capability, maintenance of quality, and promotion of a community-building environment that is quality- and excellence-driven. To attain these, PanpacificU adheres to the principle of PUNP CARES Model as described below.
