CORDILLERA STUDIES CENTER

  2nd International Conference on Cordillera Studies

 


 

The Cordillera  Studies  Center  (CSC)  came  into being in June 1980, when the Board of Regents approved   its   establishment   as   the   research and extension arm of the Division of Social Sciences. During its formative period, the activities of the Center were   guided   by   the   following   key   considerations:

 “A  multi-disciplinary approach to research; close linkage with local communities to enable the Center to respond to social issues confronting the region; a vision of social science practice relevant to the process of social transformation”.

 Research activities during its first decade focused on highland agriculture using the agro-ecosystem framework; population,   resources   and   environment;   and   issues in  governance  and  policy.  Later,  the  CSC  expanded its research agenda to include studies on women and gender; local economic, political and social institutions; indigenous  knowledge  and  world  views;  local  history, and health.  Issues in Cordillera autonomy also became an   important   component   of   its   research   program.

 Although the CSC was propelled largely by social science research, it was also able to accommodate the research interests of faculty from the humanities and natural sciences. The move toward greater multi-disciplinary collaboration received an impetus when the CSC began operating as a College Research Center in June 1998.

In  December  2002,  the  University  of  the  Philippines Baguio   (UP   Baguio)   became   the   7th   constituent university of the UP System. An integral component of the  blueprint  for  UP  Baguio  as  constituent  university was the transformation of the CSC into the University Research   Center.   This   was   formalized   in   2004.

Today,    the    CSC    takes    on    the    mandate    to realize   the   goal   of   making   UP   Baguio   into   the lead    institution    for    research    in    Northern    Luzon.
