For its part, TAU pledges participation and support on national advocacy activities and bringing the services of the government to the community especially to the students.
“We thank the PIA for the continuing trust to TAU and for the help and assistance for the development of our newly opened DevComm program,” TAU President Dr. Max P. Guillermo said.
“Through this cooperation with technical assistance in the field of development communication, we hope to bring various skills and knowledge to the students for them to become a well-equipped development communicator,” he added.

For his part, PIA Assistant Regional Head Carlo Lorenzo Datu thanked TAU for its support in the various national and regional campaigns of the agency. PIA has an existing Memorandum of Understanding with TAU on the promotion of the state university’s various programs and projects.
