Pres. Sevilleja said that the “CLSU- Aburn University partnership is one of the oldest and most productive partnerships we have with foreign institutions. This led to the establishment of the FAC and CF”. For his part, Dr. Dunham said, “CLSU and AU have a long history together and we are looking forward to revitalizing and strengthening that relationship”. Last October 12, Dr. Dunham conducted a seminar at the FACCF for the collaborative project between CLSU and AU entitled “Application of Xenogenesis in Aquatic Resource Management”.
