Bill creating BSU-San Rafael campus lapses into law
MANILA, Philippines — A bill seeking to create a campus of the Bulacan State University (BSU) in the municipality of San Rafael, in Bulacan has lapsed into law.
Republic Act 11329 or the “Bulacan State University-San Rafael Campus Act” lapsed into law last April 22 after President Rodrigo Duterte did not act on its bicameral conference committee report, a document released by Malacañang showed Thursday.
Under the new law, BSU is mandated to admit students to the San Rafael Campus who may avail of graduate, undergraduate and short-term technical-vocational courses within the university’s areas of specialization.
The campus administrator, who will head the new San Rafael campus, will be appointed or designated by the BSU Board of Regents on the recommendation of the search committee and the President.
The BSU main campus is located in the City of Malolos. It has satellite campuses in the municipalities of Bustos, Bulakan, San Ildefonso, Hagonoy, Pulilan and in the city of San Jose del Monte. /muf
