In its continued effort to expand partnerships beyond the Davao Region, the Holy Cross Davao College (HCDC) has formed ties with the Central Mindanao Colleges (CMC) through a Memorandum of Agreement signed last November 22, 2022 at the Office of the President.

CMC, a non-sectarian higher education institution in Kidapawan City, North Cotabato is HCDC’s first institution partner in Region XII.

HCDC President Br. Noelvic H. Deloria, S.C. said the agreement is a concretization of HCDC’s mission of ‘walking in synodality through inclusivity.’

The partnership aimed at fostering academic collaboration and cooperation between the two institutions while providing opportunities for students both in undergraduate and graduate programs.

The said event was attended by HCDC President Br. Noelvic H. Deloria, S.C., Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Teresa P. Fabiana, Center for Linkages, Internationalization and Language Studies (Link-In & LS) Head Ms. Sheryl Urdaneta, Focal Person of Link-In & LS Ms. Hazel Arozado, and the Social Action Coordinator Mrs. Jeralyn Palero.

Also present in the ceremonial signing was the CMC President Dr. Cynthia Asuncion, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Director of the Center for Linkages and International Affairs Dr. Mark Dela Cerna, with the Deans from different programs: Dr. Roland D. Poblador, Dr. Gemma Kintanar, Dr. Jaymie Rellon, Ms. Esther Lyn T. Angeles, and Mr. John Rowuel Palabrica.  

HCDC is hopeful to establish meaningful relationships with other institutions across the country and in the world.
