Notre Dame of Dadiangas University in Philippines ushered in a new era in academic instruction and human resource technical skills training with a groundbreaking ceremony for its Glamang College of Engineering and Technology (CET) campus on June 19, 2018.

The campus will house laboratories and classroom space for engineering and technology courses vital to the jobs of tomorrow. The new space located in the nearby municipality of Polomolok, South Cotabato is seen to foster innovative and collaborative learning opportunities to expand educational and technical experiences.

Marist Brothers, local government officials, alumni, members of the academic council and other stakeholders took part in the groundbreaking ceremony.

In his welcoming speech, NDDU President Br. Paterno Corpus FMS emphasized the strengths of having a vision and working towards its completion. He said that he was delighted that the members of the board had recognized the need for expansion and collaboration in order to continuously work on the Marist mission of providing quality Christian education.

The Marist East Asia Provincial, Br. Robert Teoh, FMS and Br. Lindley H. Sionosa, FMS, the Vice Provincial, also gave insightful messages about building in the name of the Lord, the realization of a dream conceived to ensure that the youth remains to be the hope of our future.

The Groundbreaking Ceremony was done solemnly with a liturgy, prayer offering for the builders and blessing of the tools. Further, as quoted by Br. Lindley, Br. Manuel de Leon, the Chairman of the BOT stated that the groundbreaking also symbolizes the importance of breaking into the uncertain future but being grounded on our values.
