University eyes to construct its campus in Davao City-A A +A
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
A MANILA-BASED school is eyeing to put up a campus in Davao City as part of its expansion program outside of Luzon.
Davao City Investment Promotion Center (DCIPC) chief Jason Magnaye said Centro Escolar University (CEU) is planning to build a campus in Davao, although it's still finding a suitable land for the building.
"Centro Escolar University is looking at Davao as the site for its next campus," Magnaye said. "They are very keen on Davao City."
Magnaye and several city government officials have met CEU president Dr. Ma. Cristina D. Padolina to discuss with her the school's expansion plans.
Magnaye said the negotiation is still on the initial stage, but he assured the City Government of Davao will extend all the necessary assistance for CEU to proceed with its planned expansion.
CEU, a private, nonsectarian higher education institution, is also putting up a campus each in Cebu and Baguio. Established in 1907, Centro Escolar University presently has three campuses--Manila, Makati and Malolos.
Magnaye said should the CEU expansion plans in Davao materialize, this will further strengthen the city's position as haven for education. (CRAM)
