The University of Nueva Caceres, in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, spearheaded the unveiling and ceremonial dedication of the UNC official marker as a home of century-old trees on Jan 19, 2021 at the Gate 1 of UNC Campus.
This historic institutional event was initiated by the UNC School of Graduate Studies and the Office of Student Affairs and Services and was attended by UNC Officials and Academic Heads. This was part of UNC’s 73rd Founding Anniversary celebration, bannering the theme “Sustaining 73 Years of UNCean Education and Transitioning to the University of the Future.”
Through the Unveiling of the UNC Marker as Home of Century-old Trees, UNC memorialized the historical value of these heritage trees and institutionalized the promotion, protection and preservation of these cultural gems.
This has proven that UNC is not only a home of future-ready global learners, but also a home of century-old national treasures. UNC is proud to be an institution of learning that is academically, environmentally, culturally, and historically significant to Bicol and the nation.
