A total of 217,708,830 pesos was released by the Department of Budget and Management to Eastern Samar State University for its rehabilitation and reconstruction program after Super Typhoon Yolanda brought havoc and steamrolled most of the building structures in ESSU campuses in Guiuan and Salcedo located in the southern part of the province.

The Special Allotment Release Order (SARO) was issued to Eastern Samar State University last June 02, 2014. General Appropriations Act, RA 10633 is under the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Program. The budget covers the funding requirement for the rehabilitation and reconstruction of programs and projects directly affected by typhoon Yolanda, the SARO indicates.

The Center for Continuing Education spearheaded the Orientation Seminar on Work Ethics and Human Relations for newly-hired lecturers, instructors, job order employees and front line service personnel of the Eastern Samar State University last July 4, 2014 at the 2nd floor of the university’s Main Library Building.

The event was participated by different representatives of the ESSU community particularly the ESSU Main, ESSU Can-avid, ESSU Guiuan and ESSU Maydolong. Although there was no delegation present from the ESSU Salcedo as the event coincided with another affair in the said campus.

The College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences (CANS) held Disaster Preparedness Series of Seminars under the Experiential Learning Program (ELP) held in campus during Fridays. The ELP intends to provide students with additional skills which cannot be accommodated in the regular classes. The ELP in Disaster Preparedness is a contribution to increase students’ awareness, preparedness and response to disaster, greening the landscape, caring for environment and the over-all health and beauty of ESSU surroundings.

CANS students conducted its first of the series activities along First Aid and Water Search and Rescue (WASAR) Training last August 8 and 9, 2014. It was attended by nearly 90 students. The practicum part was held at Linaw River, Can-abong, Borongan, Eastern Samar. Mrs. Maria Lynne Parambita providedinputs on Basic First Aid while Mr. Joselito Sierra of ALERT Philippines Rescue provided practicum and test on WASAR.

A 100% increase in school ID fee, from fifty to one hundred pesos, was approved by the Board of Regents during its regular quarterly meeting held at Sarrosa International Hotel, Cebu City, 26 July 2014.

In a resolution prepared and submitted to the BOR by the Director of the Information and Communication Technology Center (ICTC), Prof. Michael L. Cruz, Jr., it stipulates, among others, the need for an increase given that the material of the new ID is capable of contact chip and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) integration that fits our new enrolment system since it has a feature that recognizes Smartcards. The benefit of this new ID, according to the resolution, is that the students can be able to transact business with the Registrar’s and Cashier’s Offices in the same manner that a GSIS eCard or ATM can do, instantaneous retrieval of student data. And for security reason, this will protect the University from outsiders who print school IDs at the behest of students who lost theirs or outsiders who simply want to enter the University premises.

Eastern Samar State University Salcedo Campus will soon be the hub of tropical fruit production and Eco-Tourism Park with the approval of the Board of Regents of its proposal to establish a Regional Tropical Fruit Genebank for Region 8.

Of the 14 Regional Tropical Fruits Genebank that will be established in the country, ESSU Salcedo will take the lead role for the whole region. A Regional Tropical Fruits Genebank will conserve, evaluate, propagate and distribute tropical fruit varieties for all provinces in the region together with its partner agency, the Farmers Community Development Foundation International or FCDF. The latter will provide regional genebanks with 62 of the best tropical fruit varieties from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and at least 20 native varieties. The germplasm entries will be planted in at least 10 hectares and will be replicated three ties to make it usable for scientific research by students and the faculty. FCDF will help build the capacities of ESSU in conducting research through training, workshops, and study tours.
