The years 2019 to 2020 jumpstarted GSPDM’s efforts towards attaining its 7.0 Academic Direction. Building on and sustaining the gains of the past two years, GSPDM intends to maintain its relevance by strengthening its capability in instruction, research and extension. It also aims to widen its reach while moving towards its goal of becoming the country’s Center of Excellence in Public Management.
Thus, in 2021, GSPDM will establish itself as a Knowledge Innovation (KI) HubLab. ‘HubLab’ is a portmanteau of “hub” and “laboratory”, the former defined as a center equipped for teaching, research, and knowledge application and the latter defined as a facility where there is validation and testing of phenomena.
