RDC XI supports UPMin Strat Plan

Written by Rene Estremera. Posted in Announcements


UP Mindanao’s Strategic Plan for 2022-2025 gains backing as the Regional Development Council (RDC) XI passes “Resolution No. 22, Series of 2023,” supporting the implementation of the plan within the Davao Region.

The RDC-XI, which oversees the social and economic development of the Davao Region, passed the resolution titled “Enjoining the Stakeholders’ Support to the University of the Philippines Mindanao Strategic Plan 2022-2025 Implementation in Davao Region” during their CY 2023 1st Quarter Full Council Meeting in Mati City, Davao Oriental on 24 March 2023.

The RDC-XI is currently chaired by Davao Oriental Governor Cora Malanyaon.

The UPMin Strategic Plan for 2022 - 2025 is a product of a series of consultations with internal and external stakeholders. It contains strategies for Mindanao's educational and socio-economic improvement. The Plan coincides with the RDC XI’s social and economic duties outlined in the Davao Region Development Plan 2023-2028. These are to boost health, improve education and lifelong learning, increase income-earning ability, ensure food security and proper nutrition, modernize agriculture and agribusiness, and advance research and development, technology, and innovation.

Furthermore, UPMin is targeting certain Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in its Strategic Plan: Good Health and Well-Being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure, Reduced Inequalities, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Life Below Water, Life on Land, and Partnership for the Goals. 

The RDC-XI's show of support for UP Mindanao’s plans is evidence that the University is taking strides to contribute to developing Mindanao.

UP Mindanao is mandated to develop academic programs and produce graduates who will serve Mindanao. It has a duty to assist cultural communities and coordinate with other organizations for Mindanao development. In line with this, UPMin has recently introduced additional programs such as the Associate of Arts in Sports Studies, the Bachelor of Science in Data Science, and the MS in Human Movement Science. UPMin will offer medical, engineering, and other academic degree programs soon.
