About Us

History

The Guinobatan Rural High School was established in 1912 and held its first classes on June 3, 1912 . It was renamed as Guinobatan Rural High School in 1927; Roxas Memorial Agricultural School in 1950; Bicol University College of Agriculture (BUCA) in 1969 through RA 5521 and now known as Bicol University College of Agriculture and Forestry (BUCAF) because of the offering of Bachelor of Science in Forestry which started in 1991.

Vision

A world class University producing leaders and change agents for social transformation and development.

Mission

To give professional and technical training and provide advanced and specialized instruction in literature, philosophy, the sciences and arts, besides providing for the promotion of technological researches.
