Aquino signs laws creating more state universities

 
President Aquino signed Republic Act 10594 establishing the Talisay City State College in Talisay, Cebu; RA 10597 establishing the Northern Iloilo State University; RA 10598 putting up the Compostela Valley State University; and RA 10600 for the Surigao del Norte State University.
 
The President also signed RA 10595 converting the Western Visayas College of Science and Technology in Iloilo into a state university to be known as the Iloilo Science and Technology University with its main campus in Iloilo City; RA 10596 converting the Mindoro State College of Agriculture and Technology in Victoria, Oriental Mindoro into a state university to be known as the Mindoro State University; and RA 10599 converting the Palompon Institute of Technology in Palompon, Leyte into a state university to be known as the Palompon Polytechnic State University.
 
The President signed the new laws last June 4.

The Commission on Higher Education said there were a total of 110 state universities and colleges (SUCs) as of August 2011.
 
Former Education secretary Edilberto de Jesus issued a call before Aquino assumed the presidency: “The more state universities they put up, the smaller the budget they put into them.”
