Greetings to the University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) community!

As the President of this respected academic institution, I am honored to welcome you to this vibrant and diverse community of scholars, learners, researchers, innovators, and professionals. Over the last four decades, our University has grown into not just a place of education but a dynamic hub of ideas, aspirations, community development, and business ventures. Our commitment to excellence remains unwavering, and we actively encourage a culture of research and innovation.

The University stands tall today because of the seeds that have been sown in the past and the result of our collaborative efforts despite the headwinds inherent in the tech-centric world. We not only survived but thrived, strengthening our Agila spirit. In this journey of knowledge and growth, I extend my heartfelt appreciation to our exceptional teaching and non-teaching staff whose commitment to outstanding public service and seamless university functioning forms the backbone of our academic excellence.

We commit to fostering an enabling environment where ideas flourish, innovation thrives, and each member finds the support and encouragement to realize their full potential. The University will maintain open communication to create an environment conducive to learning, innovation, and progress.

A special acknowledgment to our students, the heartbeat of our University. Your enthusiasm for learning and active participation infuse vitality into our campuses. Your achievements, both academic and beyond, in the local and international context, have paved the path for others to follow, and you are the living embodiment of our University's mission. You are not just our students; you are ambassadors of our commitment to shaping competent graduates, responsible citizens, and compassionate leaders of our country.

Let the University's core values of Collaboration, Accountability, Resilience, Excellence, and Service be our compass toward achieving our shared vision of becoming a premier research university transforming communities in the ASEAN and beyond. Together, let us embrace the opportunities and challenges ahead. With our shared endeavors, we will navigate unforeseen challenges with hope and optimism. The landscape of education is evolving, and we, as a community, must be at the forefront of positive change. Our commitment to excellence must remain steadfast, driven by a shared vision for a better, more inclusive future.

Together, as a united community, we can achieve great heights. Let us be the force that the community needs to transform their lives. This Administration is committed to upholding principles of good governance, fostering academic excellence, advancing robust research initiatives, enhancing extension activities, and cultivating thriving income-generating projects (IGPs).
