Graduate College organizes 2017 In-House Research Development Conference

December 4, 2017 by: Saidamin P. Bagolong

Cotabato City, Philippines-a conference attended by thirty (30) Ph.D students, alumni and some faculty members gathered on 2-3 December 2017 for the In-House Research Development Conference. 

The two-day conference held at the audio visual room was organized by the Graduate College in coordination with the Office of the Research Services through its Editorial Board. The conference was divided into two prongs, Day 1 was a workshop on “Translating Thesis and Dissertation into Publishable Article” while Day 2 was intended for paper presentation and publication.

The In-house Research Development Conference aimed to “increase the number of articles to be published in the research journal, provide opportunities for possible presentation in external conference and publication in the double-blind peer reviewed journals, identify possible adoption for further research or basis for community extension project, and serve as basis for possible external funding,” said the organizers.

In his opening remarks, Dean Saidamin P. Bagolong of the Graduate College described the conference as a platform where both the students and the faculty members will be able to understand and learn the relevance of research so that they may share their learning to others and do the same.

He added that findings of research like thesis and dissertation should be published as these may be used to discover new things, generate new knowledge, ideas and innovate existing technologies as essential element in driving the future of human society. He also emphasized that outputs should not end in bookshelves. They must be shared and promoted to specific clients through publication both printed and online.

Dr. Bagolong also thanked the Vice President for Academics, Dr. Sema G. Dilna for his support and dedication for research along with Dr. Ma. Rhodora V. Jovellano and Ma’am Farida K. Dimalen, Deans of College of Business and Public Administration and College of Forestry respectively for their attendance and some faculty members, Dr. Rackman B. Lalaog, Dr. Jose Arnold Alferez and Forester Ambusa Badal for their interest to publish their papers.

Most importantly to Dr. Thelma F. Villa, Dr. Jonathan M. Mantikayan, Dr. Abdul M. Lantong, and Dr. Jaimelyn L. Ututalum who served as panel of evaluators or reviewers for their assistance in the refinement of the articles, and to Dr. Dammang S. Bantala, the College President for allowing us conduct the conference and for always encouraging us to make CCSPC an institution providing quality researches, the Dean added.



BismillahArrahmanArraheem. AssalaamuAlaykumWarahmatullahiTa’alaWaBarakatuh!

 Indeed, all praise is due to ALLAH. We praise Him and seek His Help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Him from the evils of our souls and our wrong doings. He whom He guides, no one can misguide; and he whom He misguides, no one can guide. Glory be to Him who does not treat the citizens of His Kingdom unjustly and harshly. Glory be to Him who does not let torment and pain come suddenly upon mankind. Glory be to the Compassionate, the Merciful. We ask Him to fill our hearts and minds with true enlightenment, discerning intelligence, quick understanding and knowledge. Verily, Thou art able to do all things (Al-Imran 3: 26-27). 






 CCSPC, the heart of southern seas

 Your banner is night

 Your seal is light

 A symbol of unity

 In the land of Maguindanao




From your fertile soil ‘neath the skies

 Great men came by

 Cradle of leaders like jewels so rare

 You nourish your seeds with care

 A fortress of peace in lasting stride

 We hail your name far and wide




 Seat of wisdom,

 Our home of truth and love

 Your ideals we sustain

 all throughout the land

 the freedom we have gained along

 makes the best in us for long

 You’re life and inspiration

 till the end of time





 Our Alma Mater dear

 Your portals so great

 Your visions I’ll take

 To all humanity

 We lead your fame and glory

 To God and our Philippines

 Loyal to you, CCSPC.


(Repeat Chorus)


Hail to you, CCSPC…
