HISTORY

The Cavite State University (CvSU) in Indang, Cavite started as a pioneer Intermediate School (Indang
Intermediate School) established by the American Thomasites in 1906. Its first teachers were the
American Thomasites recruited from the United States Armed Forces, with Mr. C.E. Workman as its first
principal.

Subsequently, the enrollment increased and Filipino teachers were hired. Two American principals
succeeded Mr. Workman: Mr Henry Wise followed by Mr. Joseph Cocannouer. In 1915, the school had its
first Filipino principal, Dr. Mariano Mondoñedo. During this time, intermediate classes were maintained
with emphasis on vocational agriculture for boys and domestic science for girls. In 1918, the name of the
school was changed to Indang Farm School.

In 1920s, the school site had expanded through the donation of civic-minded citizens of Indang like Don
Severino de las Alas, who was then Secretary of Interior in General Emilio Aguinaldo’s cabinet, and Don
Francisco Ocampo.

When Mr. Simeon Madlangsakay became the school principal, the name of the school was changed to
Indang Rural High School. It first offered secondary courses in Vocational Agriculture in 1923 and in
Home Economics in 1927.

As A State College of Agriculture

In 1958, as a way of recognizing Don Severino de las Alas’ contribution to the community, to the province
of Cavite, and to the nation, the name of the institution was changed by congressional initiative to Don
Severino National Agriculture School.

Don Severino de las Alas


In 1964, through the bill authored by Rep. Justiniano Montano Sr., the school was converted into a state
college. It was called Don Severino Agricultural College (DSAC). Mr. Santiago M. Rolle was appointed as
the first College President.

In 1967, Santiago M. Rolle was appointed as the first college president. In 1971, Certificate Technical
Agriculture was offered.

In the beginning of its establishment as a State College, the only program offering was baccalaureate
degree in agriculture including the teacher-training program in agricultural education.

Mr. Vicente T. Pinazo became its second College president in 1971. A certificate in Technical Agriculture
was introduced as a post-secondary course, in addition to the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (BSA)
and B.S. in Agricultural Education. (BSAg.Ed.) The Faculty and Staff Development Program (FSDP) was
started by sending faculty members to take up graduate studies at the University of the Philippines at Los
Baños (UPLB).

In 1976, Dr. Sotero L. Lasap Jr. transferred to DSAC from UP Los Baños and served as the College Dean.
The succeeding years had been devoted to the establishment and operation of the research and
extension functions of the College, thus, the Research and Extension Services projects were instituted.

In 1978, Pres. Pinazo and Dr. Lasap, together with Mr. Teofilo H. Montemayor, vice-president for External
Affairs of Central Mindanao University, conceptualized and submitted a proposal on extension work to
the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Subsequently, the Agriculture
Education Outreach Project (AEOP), three-year innovative extension strategy begun in 1980, was
approved and jointly funded by the Government of the Philippines through the National Economic
Development Authority (NEDA) and the United States Government through US Agency for International
Development(USAID). The project was carried out in seven state universities and colleges (SUCs)
throughout the country including DSAC and CMU, and forth major equipment and infrastructure
development in the College. Also in that year, Dr. Sotero L. Lasap designed a new logo for DSAC: Its shape
is like a spaceship’s to carry DSAC to its desired destination.
During this development period, the mission of the College was “to provide quality but affordable
education to the socially and economically disadvantaged. It shall provide instruction, research and
extension services in the arts, sciences, technology and literature toward the development of individuals
with applied orientations in their chosen careers”.

After Pres. Pinazo’s death in 1983, Dr. Ruperto S. Sangalang became the officer-in-charge, and later
acting President, then full-pledged president of the College.

Preparatory Stage (1983-1987)

During the preparatory stage (1983–1987), Dr. Ruperto S. Sangalang became the officer-in-charge and he
was the president of CVSU for the longest period.

School Year 1983-84 saw the offering of Agricultural Science curriculum, a special research-oriented
curriculum for talented high school students.

Transition Stage (1988-1992)

The transition stage (1988–1992) strengthened the instructional, research and extension programs
through the implementation of the Institutional Development Assistance and Cooperation Project.

Two senior students, Sheila Marie Rupido and Syd Lorence Erni, were soon named Outstanding Junior
Scientists and represented the Philippines in the Science Congress in Thailand in 1991 and 1992,
respectively.

Additional degree courses, both in the graduate and undergraduates levels, were offered later, along
with non-degree courses. One of the non-degree courses was the Sanayan sa Kakayahang Agrikultura
(SAKA), an innovative agricultural skills training program offered for the out-of-school youths, SAKA
started in 1988 as a joint program of the College and the Pilipinas Shell Foundation, INc. (PFSI) on
coconut-based farming system.
In the field extension service, the College became part of the network of the UP Los Baños-based
Barangay Integrated Development Approach for Nutrition Improvement of the Rural Poor (BIDANI), a
program-based approach for nutrition improvement in the barangays.

Likewise, the College became an active partner of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and
the Department of Trade and Industry (DIT) and has been designated as the National Training and
Demonstration Center for Fruit and Vegetable-Based Products (NTDC-FVBP). DSAC has also established
the Affiliated Non-Conventional Energy Center (ANEC) for Region IV in partnership with the Department
of Energy (DOE).

Through the various linkage institutions, the college implemented the Institutional Development
Assistance and Cooperation Project where the University of the Los Baños, as the lead institution,
exerted efforts in advising the College to strengthen its instructional, research and extension programs.

To address the changing needs of the clientele brought about by the agro-modernization and
industrialization in the CALABARZON (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon) area and to prepare the
academe for the university status, the college instituted four component schools in 1992. These were the
Schools of Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Education.

The University-hood Campaign Period (1993-1998)

On August 27, 1993, the College was designated by the Educational Projects Implementing Task Force
(EDPITAF) and the Bureau of Higher Education (BHE) of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports
(DECS) as the Regional College of Agriculture (RCA) for the Southern Tagalog, in recognition of its
potentials and achievements.

Being the regional college, DSAC was mandated to assist the five (5) Provincial Technical Institutes of
Agriculture (PTIAS) in the region in the improvement of their curriculum and instructional programs, in
practical and applied researches, in training PTIA staff and in leading in the production of regional
academic excellence and leadership that leads to the production of instructional materials.

The College was an active sponsor and/or host of various regional and national training programs that
catered to the needs of farmers, mentors, entrepreneurs and private government personnel.
On January 30, 1997, the College launched the Open University System which offered short-term courses
to various sectors.

As A State University

Finally, on January 22, 1998, DSAC was converted into CAVITE STATE UNIVERSITY (CvSU) by virtue of
Republic Act No. 8468, Dr. Ruperto S. Sangalang, the appointed first University president, said that “it is
both fitting and proper for the province of Cavite to have its own state university in view of the
centennial celebration of Philippine Independence in 1998. A university for the province underscores the
leading role that Cavite played during the Philippine Revolution. The university serves as an eloquent
testimony of the kind of care and attention the government is giving to deserving Caviteños, many of
whom are descendants of the gallant revolutionaries who laid down their lives so that we of the latter
generations may live in peace in a democratic society”.

As a consequence of the conversion of the College into University, the four schools were elevated into
colleges, namely: the College of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Natural Resources (CAFENR);
College of Arts and Sciences (CAS); College of Education (CEd); and College of Engineering (CEng).

Two new colleges were created: the College of Economics, Management and Development Studies
(CEMDS) and the College of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation (CSPEAR). The Open University
System was renamed Open Learning College (OLC). The Graduate School remains operational with four
extramural learning centers, namely: the Cavite College of Fisheries in Naic, Cavite; the Department of
Agriculture in Sta. Cruz, Laguna; the Mindoro State College of Agriculture and Technology in Victoria,
Oriental Mindoro; and the Quezon National Agricultural School in Pagbilao, Quezon.

Since the school year 1996-1997, the College has offered 16 doctoral, masteral and Post B.S. diploma
programs in various fields, majority of which are in agriculture and related fields.

There were 23 baccalaureate degree programs in agriculture, education, arts and sciences, engineering
and business management. The 13 non-degree programs which are by nature technology courses are
tailored to fit the demands of the Project CALABARZON which have attained an unprecedented high
degree of development in Cavite.
Enrolment in all programs for the first semester, School Year 1998-1999 reached 6,918, an increase of
15.5 percent compared to the same term during the previous school year.

The offering of the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program in School Year 1997-1998 prompted the
University to create the College of Veterinary Medicine.

In consonance with the implementation of the Agriculture and Fishery Modernization Act (AFMA) of
1997, the Department of Agriculture (DA) has tapped the University as one of the members of the
National Research, Development and Extension System Networks.

The University serves as the leader in the National Integrated Research, Development and Extension
Network on Urban Agriculture and in the National RDE Sub-Network on Coffee.

Likewise, it serves as member in the other networks, namely: fruit crops, plantation, crops, ornamental,
agricultural engineering, vegetables, root crops and plant genetic resources.

On May 19, 2000, a CHED supervised institution in the province of Cavite was integrated to the CvSU
system through Memorandum Order No. 27, series of 2000 and BOR Resolution No. 14, series of 2000-
the Cavite College of Fisheries in Naic, Cavite.

In recognition of the potentials of the College of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Natural
Resources (CAFENR) and the College of Engineering and Information Technology (CEIT), on November 6,
2000, the Commission on Higher Education designated CvSU as the Center of Development in
Agriculture and Agricultural Engineering.

On February 7, 2001, another CHED supervised institutions in the province, the Cavite College of Arts
and Trade (CCAT) in Rosario, Cavite was integrated to the CvSU system through CHED Memorandum
Order No. 27, series of 2000 and BOR Resolution No. 2, series of 2001.

In the same year, the CvSU-Cavite City campus was launched and operationalized through BOR
Resolution No. 72, series of 2001; a Memorandum of Agreement was signed during the latter part of the
year for the establishment of the CvSU-Carmona campus and it became operationalized in June 2001
through BOR Resolution No. 8, series of 2002.

During the December 2001 CvSU planning workshop among the university administrators, the vision and
mission statements of the University were framed-up.

In support to the vision of the province of Cavite, CvSU envisions to become “The premier University in
historic Cavite recognized for excellence in the development of globally competitive and morally upright
individuals.” The mission is: “Cavite State University shall provide excellent, equitable and relevant
educational opportunities in the arts, sciences and technology through quality instruction and
responsive research and development activities. It shall produce professional, skilled and morally upright
individuals for global competitiveness.

In August 2003, another branch campus was established, the CvSU-Imus campus through BOR
Resolution No. 58, series of 2003.

These milestones brought forth the following major accomplishments to the University:

“Development of the institution from a small college of agriculture offering a single degree program
with 1,526 students about half of whom were in the secondary, to a multi-campus university with about
11,000 students; two national research commodity centers; one foreign-assisted project; two regional
centers; seven national research commodity memberships; and two CHED Centers for Development.”

It was during Academic Year 2004 when CvSU adopted the BI2-FOR2CE as an acronym of its institutional
strategies, where: B-est and Brightest; I-nternationalization; I-ncentives; F-acilities; O-thers; R-esource,
Development and Extension/Special Projects; C-lient Responsiveness; and E-xcellence. All major units of
the University incorporated almost all of these strategies in the 2004 Performance commitments and
Targets.
At present, the University has nine colleges and one graduate school in the main campus, two integrated
CHED -supervised institutions and nine branch campuses.

In 2002, Cavite College of Fisheries (CACOF) in Naic and Cavite College of Arts and Trade (CCAT) in
Rosario were integrated with Cavite State University. Cavite City Campus was launched in 2001, and a
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed for the establishment of the Carmona Campus in
2002. There were also newly established campuses in other parts of Cavite: Imus Campus (est. 2003),
Trece Martires Campus (est. 2005), Silang Campus (est. 2006), Tanza Campus (est. 2007), Bacoor Campus
(est. 2008) and Gen. Trias Campus (est.2012).

In pursuit of the goals set forth by the University, the administrators, faculty members, employees, and
students are rallying behind tenets of Truth, Excellence and Service which the University stands for and
lives by.

Through the years, Cavite State University has remained committed to its mission.

Guided by the University’s vision and mission, CvSU shall forever be true to the client it has vowed to
serve.

“LAYA AT DIWA”

CvSU HISTORICAL LANDMARK

This brass artwork carries the University’s seals of TRUTH, EXCELLENCE and SERVICE. There are five basic
elements in the artwork together with the symbolic figures and meanings. The unchained female figure,
holding a book, represents the empowered Filipino woman. She is today’s contemporary woman – a
mother, a nurturer, an educator, and a servant to humanity. She is also beauty personified.

The male figure with a pen and a torch represents the dignified Filipino father. He is being shown as
strong, prominent, dignified and excellent in his field of endeavor besides being portrayed as a true
searcher of truth. The flame of the torch carries the letters CvSU for Cavite State University – serving is
the guiding light of his noble quest. The interlocked arms of the man and woman signifies unity of
purpose and direction.

The child figure with a dove, in a dynamic pose standing on top of the pillar, represents the youth in
general and recognized as the proverbial hope of the future that needs molding and nurturing. The dove
being reached out by the child symbolizes peace and freedom.

The central pillar symbolizes growth and development. It represents humanity’s common aspiration for
an improved quality of life – a kind of development with equity and harmony. It is ever growing, ever
aiming higher but always deeply rooted in history.

The entire artwork is mounted on CvSU logo-shaped base to serve as a fitting reminder to the entire
CvSU community of its great responsibility to remain faithful to the University’s vision and mission and to
hold sacred its tenets of TRUTH, EXCELLENCE, and SERVICE.

“Laya at Diwa” is a creation of the Castrillos’ of Imus, Cavite led and supervised by Jonnel P. Castrillo. It
was inaugurated on December 15, 2006 by Hon. Senator Edgardo J. Angara on the occassion of the
University’s centenary celebration.
