TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The National Commission for Culture and Arts has issudd Kalinga State University a certificate of accreditation.

NCCA Executive Director Oscar Casaysay said the certificate was issued after KSU has complied with all the criteria for accreditation qualifying it to seek NCCA grants.

KSU President Eduardo T. Bagtang considered the accreditation as NCCA’s confirmation of the university’s commitment and programs on preservation and promotion of the Cordillera culture.

With this, KSU can advance its efforts to further enrich and expand the cultural landscape of the region, Bagtang said.

NCCA-accredited institutions are recognized as leading advocates of the nation’s culture and heritage.

KSU is actively involved in the Cordillera autonomy move and had hosted regional consultation and advocacy events.

Bagtang acknowledged Jessie Grace Sannadan, Marilou Adora, Sheila Mae Carol Buslig, Pinky Larcelle Gas-ib, and James Guidangen who are part of the KSU team that worked for the accreditation. – Larry Lopez
