Vice President for Planning, Innovation, Linkaging, Land
and Agroecological Resources for Development (PILLAR4D)
The Office of the Vice President for Planning, Innovation, Linkaging, Land, and Agroecological Resources for Development (OVP-PILLAR4D) is the newest and now the fourth department of PSAU along with the three others: being the Academic Affairs, Administration, Business and Finance and Research, Extension and Training. The Office was born following the release of 2016 SUC Levelling Results which were received by the University on August 29, 2018. Of the 111 SUCs evaluated, PSAU is one of the only 20 which passed and achieved the Level IV status. One of the SUC Levelling benefits for a SUC with Level IV status is that it is allowed to have four (4) Vice-Presidents. Thus, the PSAU Board of Regents (BOR) approved the creation of the OVP-PILLAR4D during its 192nd meeting on September 24, 2018, at the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Central Office, Diliman, Quezon City.
