“Produce graduates who are not only job seekers but job creators.” This was the challenge posed by Agriculture Secretary William Dar to the country’s state universities and colleges (SUCs) and other higher learning institutions during the Investiture Ceremony of the New President of the Central Mindanao University (CMU).

In his keynote speech, Dar expressed his gratitude to the management of the University for constantly partnering with the Department in elevating the level of agriculture in Northern Mindanao. The Secretary also urged the CMU, along with other SUCs, to reinvent their teaching mechanisms and be agents of development for the whole country. (Photos by Gian Carlo Luague)
