LUBAO -- Don Honorio Ventura State University (DHVSU) president Enrique Baking on Thursday, February 21, said that with the lifting of the restrictions of the state university’s charter will now pave the way for the possibility of the institution offering a law course in the next two years, all thanks to Third District Representative Aurelio Gonzales, Jr.
Baking said that Gonzales has been instrumental in the development of the state university for almost one and half decades now.
Gonzales was the primary proponent of the Republic Act 11169 which elevated the technological school into a comprehensive state university.
The new law renamed the Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University (DHVTSU) to Don Honorio Ventura State University and amended its charter.
The DHVSU will now be able to offer new courses in the fields of Liberal Arts, Legal Management, Law, Medicine, Allied Sciences, and Health-related programs in the near future.
Baking said that they are also studying now other possible courses that could be offered in the coming year like Mass Communications. He added that courses that will be offered will reflect the needs of the community and the employment sector.
Baking said that Gonzales and his never ending support for the school will greatly contribute in the realization of future programs.
Specifically, the programs which are responsive to the needs of both society and industry are envisioned to be integrated in the existing offerings of the university like BS in Nursing, BS in Pharmacy, BS in Medical Technology, BS in Physical Therapy, AB Political Science, AB Philosophy, and AB Mass Communication among others.
