THE ISABELA State University is set to make history for its plan to build the first United Sustainable Development Goals center in the country.

The project is in collaboration with the city government of Cauayan.

ISU said that the establishment of the center will hasten the globalization of the United Nation’s SDGs.

It said that extension projects, trainings, and technical services will be provided in the city of Cauayan and in the Cagayan Valley.

“The [ISU] being a university of people, nature, innovation and entrepreneurship chooses the path to self-sacrifice. Our existence as a Higher Education Institution is defined by the relevance of our programs and services to the present time and its impact to the future,” ISU President Dr. Ric Aquino said.

“And knowing that whichever choice we make cannot be reversed, [on behalf] of [ISU], I fully give my uncompromising commitment of support to the United SDG Center. It is both an opportunity and an honor. To our partners, count on us,” he added.

A signing of the memorandum of agreement was held on Thursday by representatives from both institutions at the Isabela Convention Center.
