Officials of the University of Southeastern Philippines, led by President Perfecto A.

The academic engagement of the College of Education, USeP with the Faculty of Education, SDRU instigated the visit of USeP officials to SDRU.
Three research papers were presented by the USeP officials with the University President at the forefront. The theme of the conference was on Inclusive Education in the ASEAN where USeP officials and faculty shared their work on: (1) Models of Inclusive Education in Southern Philippines, (2) Outcome Evaluation of Training Program for Teachers Handling Children with Visual Impairment in Southern Philippines, and (3) Inclusive Practices for Students with Multiple Disabilities in Southern Philippines.

More activities were agreed upon by both universities in the next few months to strengthen the exchange program.
