The University of Nueva Caceres – School of Graduate Studies is taking an active role in community and nation-building through the inception of its Center for Adult and Lifelong Learning (Center for ALL). We will synergize our professional adult education expertise, facilities, linkages, research capability and community engagement to blaze the trail in lifelong learning. 

The apparent changes, current challenges and emerging trends in the 21st century require the development of new skills. Knowledge,skills and competencies need to be updated and upgraded to address the characteristics and concerns of our global citizens. In addition, capability-building is crucial to tackle the advent of new jobs, the shifting government initiatives and the growing international commitment towards issues such as national security, health and wellness, gender development, livelihood, disaster management and climate change.

Adult education is a major overarching and overlapping sustainable development agenda. Integrating adult education in mapping social and economic development priorities, plans and policies yields manifold benefit to a nation and its people. It is a practical key to maximize their engagement in their immediate environment, in the workforce and in the community. It is an investment which will propel the adult members of the society to realize their potential, achieve their aspirations and fulfill their destiny.

A well-balanced adult life can be achieved through adult education. Lifelong learning experiences and opportunities promote productivity, enhance employability and support sustainability. The UNC School of Graduate Studies champions adult and lifelong learning by giving strong emphasis on the value of education throughout individual’s life course. Through the Center for ALL, SGS shall expand its clientele base by providing lifelong learning experiences and opportunities for all.

By offering custom-made professional and self-enrichment programs, UNC School of Graduate Studies Center for ALL shall elevate individual and institutional capability to survive and thrive in this ever evolving environment – brought about by globalization and technological advancement. Part of the Center’s resolve is to address the manpower gap and skills mismatch across industries. It also seeks to satisfy the competency-based deficiencies in public and community service. Through skills enhancement, the Center likewise intends to mitigate unemployment and underemployment, thus gradually alleviating poverty in the Bicol region.

At UNC, we reach out not only to mainstream students but to all who want to re-skill, up-skill and cross-skill. We are also raring to provide our alumni, the workforce and adult community members fresh and creative opportunities to retrain themselves.

We are true to our University motto, “not of school but of life.” We educate beyond the confines of classroom: we inspire people to be real-life winners; we train them to be purposeful individuals; we prepare them to be change agents in the society; we support them to be assets of the economy; we mold them to be better citizens of the world. We shape them for service and groom them for greatness. We hone our homegrown heroes.
