Message of the President
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the DHVTSU website.
A multitude of facts about the university can be found in this website. You can take a glimpse at our vision and mission, our responsive educational programs, innovative research, achievements and milestones, and the administrators, faculty, personnel, students, alumni and friends who constitute the proud DHVTSU community.
DHVTSU has achieved a great deal since it was founded 1861. As the oldest vocational school not only in the country but in the whole Far East, the university constantly strives to develop an educated, empowered and economically – productive Filipino citizenry through innovative and responsive programs embracing theory and practice.
Our main focus is on the creation of learner-centered community that encourage the intellectual development and transformation of students into leaders, critical thinkers and lifelong learners.
In the years ahead, the university is foreseen to nurture individuals who possess the foundations for learning throughout life, the competence to engage in gainful work and be productive, and the values and abilities to coexist in prolific harmony with local and global communities.
We yearn to realize this aspiration through the continuous upgrading of instruction; enhancement of access to quality education; intensification of knowledge-generation; improvement of organizational efficiency; enrichment of organizational governance; provision of modern facilities and state-of-the-art equipment; promotion of social responsibility through extension, manpower and skills development training and community outreach services; and the establishment of consortia and other forms of linkages with local and foreign institutions.
I hope that you will find delight in your visit to our website and discover the information you search for. Thank you and God Bless!
