University Master Plan 2012-2022
To come up with a detailed and comprehensive campus development plan, a series of workshops for the preparation of 10-year master plan for the University was spearheaded by the University Planning Office. Ad-Hoc Committee was created and started meeting since September 2010 to decide on the planning framework and tools to use to come up with a
stakeholder-driven master plan for the university. All heads of academic and administrative units were asked to participate in 2-month long stakeholder analysis workshops to determine the issues, objectives and the best planning methodology to employ for the preparation of this very critical and detailed plan which serve as the blueprint of URS future strategic directions and holistic development for the year 2012-2022.
To seek external stakeholders' feedback and comments regarding with the Master plan, a multisectoral consultation was organized on 12 November 2010. Atty. Julito Vitriolo served as keynote speaker of this momentous event. He emphasized the importance of having a master plan for a state university like URS. He discussed issues that must be considered before crafting the master plan such as the dwindling funding support from national government, the increasing expectation to produce employable graduates and to be able to help the government and various industries towards achieving development at both national and regional levels. Various stakeholders from local government units, public and private academe, provincial and regional planning agencies, media and other key sectors were able to discussed their suggestions and comments on how to make the master plan as responsive as possible to the need of both the university and its various stakeholders. Director Madrigal also expressed willingness to be part of the technical expert committee which is to be composed of various external and internal stakeholders of the university to realize the creation of the master plan.
