II. INSTITUTIONAL PROFILE
A. History and Creation I education is the key to human and national development. This is the beacon of light from the light house of inspiration in the distant horizon but this was the drum beat out of the passion of the late Mayor Celso Sarenas, the father of the for- mer Mayor of Pantukan JC Celso V. Sarenas, ME as he sought, deep in his heart, ways to respond to help the needy and deserving, under served and under-skilled youth in the Municipality. Sometime in the 80’s, there was an established com- munity college which was known as Pantukan Community College, but it was deactivated because of the peace and order condition in the locality, In 1997, during the term of the late Mayor Jovito D. Derla, the Sangguniang Bayan of Pantukan has been granted by the Board of Regents through its request to the University of the Southeastern Philippines (USEP) an authority to open a college as an External Studies Program of the University of the Southeastern Philippines Mabini Campus in addition to reviving the Pantukan Community College During its first year of operation in 1997-1998, three academic courses were offered, namely: Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Education major in Crop Science and Animal Science; Bachelor of Science in Agriculture major in Crop Science and Animal Science; Bachelor in Extension Education major in Home Technology. All classes were housed in Pantukan National High School since the donated site of about a hectare for External Studies Program was not yet entirely developed during that time. With this, the Sangguniang Bayan asked the generosity of the Sarenas family to donate another hectare for the school site which they responded favorably. Throughout this time, the Administrative staff and faculty who were hired were mostly on a part-time status since income did not warrant the hiring of full- time faculty and staff. Some were from the LGU, from the Department of Education High School, and from other government agencies and private companies. The First Commencement Exercises was held on March 2001 which was held in Pantukan National High School. At some stage in SY 2001-2002, all the External Studies Programs were evaluated by a Committee and came up with the recommendation that they were not qualified to offer four-year degree courses instead, they were restricted to offer a two-year program only for some reasons like: lack of facilities, qualification and status of the faculty, and low passing percentage of students in the Licensure Examination for Teachers. From then on, the University of Southeastern Philippines – Mabini External Studies Program at Pantukan, Compostela Valley Province, offered only a two-year academic program in 2002- 2003 More so, when the school site was carried out in 2003, Ilon. Mayor JCelso V Sarenas, ME came in and took over the administration of the college. It was on June 2005, during his time, when all the facilities needed were set and hiring of full time instructors followed. When classes were transferred at Don Juan Sarenas Campus, the External Studies Program had a better batch turn-out KNP hired faculty members have earned Master Degree and Doctorate Degree in their respective field of expertise. While the part time instructor is still continuing with their Master and Doctorate Degree theFirst College Administrator then was Dr. Ionne A. Avelino and it was fol- lowed by Dr. Jocelyn Hijada-Hua as College Administrator on May 19, 2012. On July 2014, she was installed as the First College President of Kolehiyo ng Pantukan by the Municipal Mayor and Chairman of Board of Trustees – Hon. Roberto M. Yugo. MPA with Dr. Susan F. Labutap from the Commission of Higher Education. Because of the fast development the expansion of course offerings gave rise to the need for Tertiary Level.
