One Woman Wonder

The first woman to lead the university was Dr. Ma. Patria G. Lorenzo, who was known to be a multi-awarded leader and educator. Infrastructure development was carried out; however, cultural and value transformation were of paramount importance.

       During her presidency, the Center for Public Administration and the Agro-Forestry and Upland Development Program were initiated. Additionally, the College of Fisheries expanded by offering extension courses in Nursing, Business, and Social Work in 1990.
