The Congressional Committee on Technical and Higher Education and the Commission on Higher Education have pledged their support towards the conversion of the Zamboanga City State Polytechnic College (ZCSPC) into a full fledged university to be known as  the Zamboanga Peninsula Polytechnic State University.

The Congressional Committee on Technical and Higher Education and the CHED pledged their support in facilitating the conversion of the institution before the end of the 17th Congress.

CHED declared that they will not become a stumbling block to the conversion of the college.

Congressman Celso Lobregat, author of the ZCSPC conversion, reminded ZCSPC President Dr Nelson Cabral to comply with the requirements to realize the full conversion.

“I can only shepherd the bill in Congress but it will be up to the management and faculty to comply with the requirements.  You shoud follow my work ethic- working like there’s no tomorrow,”  Lobregat said.

Lobregat also said that the college is fortunate that the Congressional Committee on Higher and Technical Education under Representative Ann Hofer and Senate Committee on Education Chairman Chiz Escudero are pushing for the conversion of colleges into universities as long as they are qualified.

The solon urged Dr Cabral to immediately come up with a task force and provide the necessary timeline to monitor their compliance with requirements.  (Dexter Yap)
