Last March 17, the University signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Academic Cooperation with the City Government of San Juan. Honorable Mayor Francisco Javier M. Zamora led the the ceremony, alongside PUP President, Dr. Manuel M. Muhi held at the city hall.
“Nais kong magpasalamat sa PUP sa tulong na binibigay nila sa San Juan, gusto natin yung ating workforce ay nakakatanggap ng maayos na edukasyon at makakatulong upang mapabuti nila ang kanilang paglilingkod sa lungsod ng San Juan. Napakalaking tulong po ng PUP sa ating lungsod, sa ating mga mag-aaral, at ngayon, sa ating mga kawani,” Mayor Zamora shared in his speech.
(“We are grateful to PUP for all the assistance they have extended to the City of San Juan. We envision a workforce that is empowered with quality education, which would then enrich the kind of public service they render to our constituents. PUP is indeed a blessing to our city, to our students, and now, to our local government employees,” Mayor Zamora shared in his speech.)
The agreement called for the creation of and collaboration on extension projects between the two public agencies. PUP will also be offering undergraduate and graduate studies program for the professional growth and development of San Juan City employees. These are underscored in two (2) separate agreements, one covers short courses offered at the Main Campus, while the other one expands scholarship programs and engagements with the San Juan Campus.
