TAU leads DIAL program

 

The pressing national  issues on agricultural and rural development such as inappropriate technologies, institutions, mechanisms to support programs focusing on food security, agricultural competitiveness, export of agricultural products, and well-being of people in marginalized farming communities could now be addressed by the Tarlac Agricultural University (TAU) through the “Development of an International Agrotechnology Lighthouse (DIAL) Program.”

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has recently awarded the TAU-DIAL EDSA project team PhP 10 million as a continuing education program grant to carry out the capability enhancement for the said program.  Said budget for the five-year endeavor will reach to PhP 150 million in the development of this program at three different project sites: TAU, Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University (DMMMSU) in Bacnotan, La Union, and Pampanga State Agricultural University (PSAU) in Magalang, Pampanga.

To be implemented in collaboration with the Israel Embassy, the DIAL Program is an offshoot of the successful internship program of Filipino agriculture students in Israel, which is participated in by 30 SUCs in the country with more than two thousand recorded interns for the last nine (9) years.
