Cebu Normal University
Cebu Normal University's (CNU) history began with the establishment in 1902 of Cebu Normal School as a provincial branch of Philippine Normal School. With the passage of R.A. No. 5128 in 1967, Cebu Normal School was renamed Cebu Normal College. In 1976, it was converted into a state college by virtue of P.D. No. 944. On June 27, 1998, the higher education institution (then called Cebu State College) attained university status and was named Cebu Normal University (CNU) pursuant to R.A. No. 8688. CNU has campuses in Medellin and Balamban.

CNU responds to the challenge of ensuring inclusive growth and alleviating poverty through relevant and quality tertiary education. It promotes economic productivity and innovation through advanced education research. The university engages the community by providing relevant and timely technical advisory extension services.

CNU, in partnership with Singapore Polytechnic, seized the first opportunity to leverage design thinking by offering E-HELP (Education, Health, Environment, Livelihood, and Peace) Design Thinking Laboratory for Caputatan Norte, Medellin from September 6- 19, 2015. This was followed by a second project implemented on April 3-16, 2016 where another set of CNU and SP students from various disciplines co-created innovative solutions to meet the challenges of optimizing CNU’s learning space, promoting higher education learning culture and tapping learning resource technologies.

Chitralada Vocational School is located in buildings 604 and 605 within the grounds of Sanam Seua Pa. The school was founded in 2004 by Thanpuying Angkab Punyashthiti at the request of H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.

H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn felt that the school could expand further, and this would give students with an interest in vocational knowledge a chance to develop their skills. It was also H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s wish that the vocational school’s curriculum should be specially designed for that school. The first priority for Chitralada vocational students is that they will be provided with the training and skills needed for a particular job or profession.

Chitralada Vocational School offers seven vocational programs as follows:
  • Electronics
  • Computers in Business
  • Retail Business Management
  • Electrical Power

Singapore Polytechnic started out right in the heart of the financial district. Today, the polytechnic is located strategically in Dover Road - in the educational belt and science hub in the western part of Singapore. Our graduates have contributed significantly to Singapore's economic and industrial growth and many are now well-known entrepreneurs. Others hold positions of responsibility and leadership in industry, business and in public organisations.

We may be the oldest Polytechnic but the pioneering spirit is kept very much alive. Look around our campus. We are constantly refurbishing the buildings and facilities to ensure that they are up to date and well equipped for training students in the new industries and emerging technologies.

The change and development is not limited to the physical. Our underlying philosophy and leadership provide the direction for our vision.
