Featured Partner Institution

Central Luzon State University (CLSU) sits on a 658-hectare campus in the Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija.

It was designated by the Commission on Higher Education–National Agriculture and Fisheries Education System as the National University College of Agriculture and the National University College of Fisheries. CHED also designated it as a Center of Excellence (COE) in agriculture, agricultural engineering, biology, fisheries, teacher education, and veterinary medicine—the most number of COEs in Central Luzon and Northern Luzon. Likewise, it was selected by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquaculture, Forestry, and Natural Resources Research and Development as the Center of Research Excellence in Small Ruminants and by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources as a Regional Integrated Coastal Resources Management Center. Additionally, it was picked as a Model Agro-Tourism Site for Luzon.

CLSU stands out as the only comprehensive state university in the Philippines with the most number of curricular programs accredited by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines with Level IV accreditation. The university is further declared a cultural property of the Philippines due to its high historical, cultural, academic, and agricultural importance to the nation. To date, CLSU remains one of the premier institutions of agriculture in Southeast Asia known for its breakthrough research in aquatic culture (a pioneer in the sex reversal of tilapia), ruminants, crops, orchards, and water management, living through its vision of becoming “a world-class national research university for science and technology in agriculture and allied fields”.

Dr. Edgar A. Orden serves as the president of CLSU.
