University Mandate on Extension Services – Extension Services is an outreach unit of Cavite State University.  As mandated, the University shall “provide advanced instruction and professional training in agriculture, science and technology, education and other related fields, undertake research and extension services, and provide progressive leadership in these areas.”  (Republic Act No. 8468, converting the Don Severino Agricultural College into University Status, to be called Cavite State University).

Republic Act 8435, or the Agriculture and Fisheries Modernization Act of 1997 (AFMA) under section 86 stated that: “It is hereby declared the policy of the state to promote science and technology, as essential for national development and progress.  The State shall give priority to the utilization of research results through formal and non-formal education, extension and training services.” 

Historical Background

For decades, the University has been involved in community outreach and extension activities.  When this was converted into Don Severino Agricultural College (DSAC) in 1964, extension became one of the functions of this institution, in addition to instruction and research.  DSAC started with two major units, the Secondary Department and the College Department. The latter conducted extension services in the form of seminars on improved farm practices and certified seeds and veterinary services to the animals of the service area.  In addition, the College maintained a one-and-a-half hectare nursery for the propagation of and multiplication of important plants for on-campus and for farmers’ use.  The Swine Project which was used for instruction purposes also served as a source of foundation stock for farmers.  Boar services were made available to small hog raisers for the improvement of their stock (DSAC Annual Report, SY 1968-69). 

Since then, the milestones of extension services were recorded in the Annual Reports of this educational institution.
