The Holy Cross of Davao College Institute of Davao Studies (IDS) is now a full-fledged member of the Local Historical Committees Network (LNCN) of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) Mindanao Cluster after it has successfully passed the assessment and review conducted by the said organization.

The institute’s admission to the network will provide assistance for scholarly work and academic advancement of its faculty and students, particularly in the field of social sciences.

Future research and publications from our office will now be part of the collection, documentation, popularization, conservation, restoration, and preservation of extant historical materials of the NHCP-LHCN, particularly about Davao Region, IDS Focal Person Rhys Lacia said.

The said membership will also open opportunities for the institution to highlight its programs and activities that will benefit the entire community.

The institute emphasized that it will work hard to continue to spread awareness of the rich culture and tradition of the Davao region in the country and around the world. (Christine Necesario)
