18 November 2021 - The Master in Public Management Major in Regional and Local Governance and Development (MPM-RLGD) convened its project teams for a timely Coordination Meeting on the program. The MPM-RLGD is the brainchild of a tripartite partnership between the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Office of the Chief Minister (BARMM-OCM), the DAP sa Mindanao (DsM), and the DAP Graduate School of Public and Development Management (DAP-GSPDM).

The Coordination Meeting was held at a time the Program moves forward onto the second half of its coursework for the Major Courses, where enrolled Bangsamoro civil servants will take up study of innovative courses such as Muslim Governance, Human Security, and Peacebuilding.

The MPM-RLGD curriculum is co-developed by the DAP-GSPDM, BARMM government, and a pool of local and international public management and Islamic studies experts. Crucial to its success has been the support and leadership of Hon. Mohd Asnin K. Pendatun, Cabinet Secretary, BARMM; Mr. Mark Lemuel L. Garcia, Managing Director, DAP sa Mindanao; and Dr. Lizan E. Perante-Calina, Dean, DAP Graduate School.
