Historical Sketch of the Graduate School

Afterwhich, Master of Business Management, Master of Arts in Education majors in Mathematics, Filipino, Physical Education, English, Technology and Livelihood Education and Doctor of Public Administrations were offered. Certificates of Programs Compliance were issued to the University for satisfactorily addressing the requirements on administration, faculty complement, research presentation and publication, library holdings, support services, physical facilities and laboratories. In its commitment to quality and excellence, the academic programs were subjected to Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP) evaluation, satisfactory passed the preliminary visit, qualified for Level 1 with a rating of “Very Good” and due for Level 2 assessment this academic year 2018-2019.

Strong partnership with the various agencies of the government, civil society groups, non-governmental organizations, people’s organizations were forged as part of its “corporate social responsibility” advocacy. Due to the recognition of the University’s stature and reputation, the GS served as the host unit for the DELTA (Developing Excellent Leaders and Teachers Academic Achievement) scholars of the Province of Pampanga. In 2017, there were 150 public schools teachers who enjoyed scholarship benefits and other related fees.

In recognition of the strong need for a broad-based improvement of the readiness, capabilities and capacities of public service professionals in education to ensure the attainment of producing competitive graduates at different levels of education, innovative engagement should put into fore. Hence, “Cross-Institutional Complementation for Advanced Program Capacitation” was conceived, a joint academic venture between DHVTSU and Dr. Yanga’s Colleges and a Commission on Higher Education (CHED) endorsed program.
As of the academic year 2017-2018, there are 1,358 officially enrolled students and most of the University’s graduates are now occupying key positions, both public and private (as exhibited in the GS Tracers Studies).
