Silliman University President Dr. Betty Cernol McCann, visited St. Paul Uni versity Dumaguete (SPUD) last August 3,2018 to strengthen alliance among universities in Dumaguete.
Dr. McCann was warmly welcomed by Sister Joseline R. Lasala SPC, SPUD President with Sr. Maria Corazon Querubin SPC, Local Surperior,Head of Music Department and the SPC Sisters . Dr. Betty McCann met with the SPUD President where they discussed partnership opportunities, particularly in research and action projects involving the environment.
Care for the environment is a major thrust of the Administration of Dr. McCann. A comprehensive framework that involves research, academic programs, community extension activities, as well as internal and external collaborations are well in place for the realization of her note-worthy advocacy. Both of them have exchanged ideas of their best practices. Reminiscing the history of St. Paul and Silliman in the field of culture, arts and extension program, the long history of good relationship of both Universities started in 1953 when Dr. Robert B. Silliman and wife Metta J. Silliman helped the SPC Sisters in a big fire which burned down the whole school complex.Silliman and St. Paul’s friendship stays forever. (PENN LARENA)
