    VISION
    Strengthening further

     The SURP to be an institution of learning and excellence in research in planning in Southeast Asia, anchored on environmentally sustainable development and low carbon society, and guided with the Philippines’ national aspirations
    MISSION
     To provide the means in meeting its vision, I do hope that within the term given to me, if I will be the one chosen to be the steward of The SURP, the following will be the tasks that I intend to do:

      Necessitate the review and improvements of the current academic programs of The SURP to be more attuned to development planning and in ensuring it to be at par with planning institutions not only in Southeast Asia but in Europe and the United States.

      Strengthen its graduate programs to ensure that its students will be properly equipped as professionals in planning, planning educators, responsive evaluators of development projects, estate planners, transport planners with consideration of not only in support of development and business but also in addressing the impacts of development projects.

      Strengthen the knowledge and skills of planners in the government, more importantly at the local level, in not only coming up with plans but also in furnishing their decision-makers proper information necessary for coming up with responsive policies that will result to strategies relevant in meeting their mandate for development and addressing impacts of development.

      Provide responsive practical capacity-building tuned to both the requirements of the public and private sectors and civil society organizations that are critical in the check and balance of planning.

      Review and eventually lay down a research framework that can guide The SURP in coming up with research and studies that not only will support its graduate programs but provide the planning tools in support of national development and inclusive growth. The research framework needs to include the new thoughts, tools for research and in meeting the complexities of development planning in ensuring inclusive growth and addressing climate change impacts/disaster risk reduction, and other urban problems such as traffic congestion, urban sprawl, air quality, and so on. The advent of ICT and recent applications for analysis, big data, among others are relevant directions for research.

      Ensure smooth transition from the immediate school administration, not only reviewing the programs and initiatives done but also to provide continuity in pursuing ICURP and how the new building of The SURP can be fully utilized by the future generations of The SURP.
