As part of its strategy for gender mainstreaming, the Cagayan State University held a forum and workshop on gender issues at the CSU Andrews Amphitheater on July 24.

The activity aimed to generate a baseline data on office/school-based gender problems encountered by students, faculty members and administrative staff.

The identified issues, according to Dr. Jocelyn Tuscano, university Gender and Development (GAD) focal person, will be used as basis for the conduct of future GAD activities and will form part of a position paper that the GAD office will spearhead for consideration of the administration.

Fifty participants composed of students, faculty members, university officials and non-teaching staff participated in the activity which had Dr. Mariden V. Cauilan, vice president for academic affairs, as guest who delivered an inspirational message before the participants who were split in teams and who presented their outputs during the afternoon session.

Dr. Antonio I. Tamayao of the College of Teacher Education served as resource speaker of the workshop part.

He was accompanied by workshop facilitators who included Dr. Eduardo Carag, Dr. Editha Pagulayan, Dr. Febe Marl Paat, Dr. Protacio Ibuna, Prof. Kristinne Joyce Lara, Dr. Maribel Malana, Ms. Sheila Marie Bangayan and Prof. Avelina Ayuyang.
