Ma-GAD na buhay sa ating lahat! The Gender and Development Office is crucial in addressing gender-related matters, issues, and concerns of our Sintang Paaralan. As the technical working group of the University’s GAD Focal Point System (GFPS), the Office facilitates gender mainstreaming efforts in all projects and programs of the University, from instruction, research, extension, and advocacy work.
While many of the functions of GADO revolve around the requirements set forth by law, the Office is focused on creating a safe space for all members of the University where gender equality, diversity, and inclusivity thrives.
GAD is Good!
