Resource generation has parenthetically become a fourth function of the state universities and colleges as an offshoot of the trilogy functions of instruction, research and extension. Generally, resource generation projects operate under the basic purpose of inculcating into the students the intricacies of venturing into profitable businesses under the context of sustainable development in an actual situation as well as providing a showcase for extension clients of which research generated technologies are to be applied.
For the Mountain Province State Polytechnic College (MPSPC), the existence of agriculture-based production projects is attributed to the early endeavors to fit expectations of a state college. Following the same manner, the food processing, garments and the marketing centers and others to be put up, hinge existence on providing significant ancillary facilities such as incubation centers for entrepreneurship and practicum centers of home technology.
With sufficient income projected, these projects adopt the “going concern” of accounting so as to justify their existence and contribution to the fiscal health of the College. Incidentally, at this point in the College’s new administration where it has to stamp its mark in the education superhighway pockmarked with educational reforms, the resource generation function to raise income is a challenge. Hence, alongside with the trilogy functions, resource generation is visibly taking the center stage for institutional existence and development.
