Central Luzon State University (CLSU) is a state university located in a 658-hectare campus in Muñoz, Nueva Ecija, Philippines. The University is the lead agency of the Muñoz Science Community and the seat of the Regional Research and Development Center in Central Luzon. To date, CLSU is one of the premiere institutions for agriculture in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia known for its research in aquaculture, ruminants, crops, orchard, and water management.
Central Luzon State University is located in the Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija, Philippines. It started as a farm school and in 1907 became Central Luzon Agricultural School (CLAS) with the intention of promoting agriculture and mechanics arts. Later, it included the promotion of homemaking arts among its burning commitments.
In 1954, CLAS was converted into Central Luzon Agricultural College (CLAC). with the mission of promoting Agricultural Education. In 1964, it was elevated into a university, the Central Luzon State University, to provide advance instruction and technical and professional training in agriculture and mechanics arts, and promote research, literature, philosophy, sciences, technology and arts. Over the years, CLSU has been known as an agriculture-oriented institution. Today, it has transformed into a comprehensive university offering various undergraduate and graduate courses. Lately, it has been designated as a zonal university in Luzon as one of the more respected institutions of higher learning in the Philippines. CLSU is located on a 658-hectare sprawling main campus in the Science City of Muñoz, which is located 150 km north of Manila. It also has a more than 1000-hectare site for ranch type buffalo production and forestry development up the hills of Carranglan town, in northern Nueva Ecija, 40 km away from the main campus. The University is the lead agency of the Muñoz Science Community and the seat of the Regional Research and Development Center in the Central Luzon. To date, CLSU is one of the premier institutions of agriculture in Southeast Asia known for its breakthrough researches in aquatic culture (pioneer in the sex reversal of Tilapia), ruminant, crops, orchard, and water management researches.
Central Luzon State University (CLSU) is one of the renowned and prestigious institutions of higher learning in the Philippines. It has consistently produced well-trained professionals and technicians, provided services with marked excellence. In April 2007, CLSU celebrated its centenary.
On April 12, 1907, it started as a farm school, the Central Luzon Agricultural School (CLAS), through Executive Order No. 10 issued by then Governor General James F. Smith, James F. Smith. Its initial emphasis was on the development of skilled and technician-type graduates to meet the human resource requirements in the opening and cultivation of rich farmlands.
As a school, CLAS stamped a class of its own. With its unique curriculum, it promoted agriculture and mechanic arts which combined practicum and academic work. In time, CLAS became known as the “mother of vocational agriculture schools” in the country.
The school was converted into Central Luzon Agricultural College (CLAC) on December 31, 1950 by virtue of Executive Order No. 393 issued by then President Elpidio Quirino to promote agricultural education. As a higher learning institution, CLAC distinguished itself as the first state college established by the Philippine government to promote agricultural education, agricultural engineering and home economics, among others.
On June 18, 1964, CLAC was elevated into Central Luzon State University (CLSU) by virtue of Republic Act No. 4067 “to give professional and technical training in agriculture and mechanic arts; provide advance instruction; promote research, literature, philosophy, the sciences, technology and arts.”
From its basically agricultural orientation, CLSU turned into a comprehensive higher education institution offering various undergraduate and graduate courses.
The CLSU campus is a sprawling 658-hectare area in the Muñoz, 150 km north of Manila. On October 19, 2001, CLSU was launched as the Model Agri-Tourism Site for Luzon under the Philippine Agri-Tourism Program, a joint project of the Department of Agriculture and Department of Tourism.

CLSU Past Presidents
The Research Program primarily started in 1976 to help graduate students in their agricultural researches. Having momentum, and acknowledging the importance of research in an academic community, its thrust later expanded to cover several technical researches on selected agricultural commodities. In 1978, the Research and Extension Programs were merged which gave birth to the Research and Development Center (R & DC). The R and DC adopted the pipeline approach as its strategy to spur countryside group for information and technology dissemination and contribute to the realization of the university’s development goals. It relives the maxim “development is research utilized”. Research was, therefore envisioned to establish a foundation that would accomplish one of the trilogies of functions of the University.
Moving on with this commitment, the R and DC became the Research, Extension and Training (RET) in 1987 where prioritized research programs are important features and are geared towards improving the quality of life of the people it serves.
Today, the Research Office has received prominence and has established a solid ground in its continuous and relentless efforts towards contributing to countryside development.
