THE PALAWAN State University has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the US Embassy to formally establish its 15th American Corner in the province.

The project will lead to the sharing of a wide range of resources from and about the US.

It aims to promote understanding and cooperation between the US and the Philippines as the two countries celebrate 75 years of diplomatic relations.

PSU Librarian Joyce Banzuelo said she was overwhelmed by the signing of the agreement.

“Sa dinami-rami ng State Universities and Colleges sa Filipinas, pangatlong member pa lang ang PSU. This will help us not only for the additional resources for the students and our faculty, but also sa DepEd and the province,” she said.

“May mga resources ang American Corner na magagamit sa teaching strategies ng ating College of Teacher Education students pagdating sa English language and eventually magagamit nila pag na-employ na sila sa DepEd,” Banzuelo added.

The American Corner in Puerto Princesa is located at the third floor of the PSU Main Campus Library in Barangay Tiniguiban.
