UM conducts Community Extension Congress

A showcase of best practices in the workplace was presented by Community Extension implementers last Feb. 22 at the UM AVR 2.


The Community Extension Congress enabled practitioners to hear about practices of excellence in the workplace of their colleagues, so that new knowledge can be used for replication or innovation of their existing practices.


The best practices was presented through creative, friendly competition among participants of the congress.

The “Munting Tindahan” Project of UM Tagum won the Best Paper and “MuntingPaaralan” won the Best Poster.

This annual gathering of community extension implementers in the University was also arranged to honor the men and women who have dedicated their efforts, time, expertise and material resources to reach out and positively change the communities they serve.

Certificates of Recognition were handed to participants of the congress to bolster their pride and continuously serve communities who are in need.

On top of the awards and recognitions given, the organizers of the activity were pleased to have gathered the insights and realizations of competing teams and the observers regarding their experiences in project implementation and extension service.

The sharing was very fruitful that generated lots of fresh ideas which can be used as input for enhancement of the curriculum and research.

Dr. Ronnie Amorado, vice president for academic planning and services, and Dr. Eugenio Guhao Jr., the dean for graduate school, also graced the occasion and gave assurance that the insights will be properly discussed with the deans for consideration.
