Siquijor State College is the only state college in the island province of Siquijor in the Central Visayas Region, Philippines. Siquijor Island is geographically located 30 kilometers East of Negros Island and 565 kilometers from Manila.

Campus[edit]

The SSC campus has a total land area of 3.9 hectares and is located in Barangay North Poblacion in the municipality of Larena.

Brief history[edit]

Siquijor State College, was founded by Lt. Governor Vicente Villanueva in 1920. It was then called as the Larena High School (LHS) that offered only the first and the second year levels, one section per curriculum year level with only two teachers including the principal which was under the supervision of the Negros Oriental Provincial High School (NOPHS) in Dumaguete City.

Nine years later (1929) it operated as a complete secondary school and was renamed the Larena Sub-Provincial High School. Only July 1, 1960, by virtue of Republic Act No. 2423, the school was converted into a vocational school offering the Secondary Trades Curriculum. This time the school was called the Larena National Vocational School (LNVS). As the only vocational school in the province, it offered collegiate technical courses and evening opportunity classes.

The dream of the administration for the full conversion of the Larena National Vocational School into a college was realized when the National Assembly approved Batasang Pambansa Blg. 387 on April 14, 1983 and LNVS became the Larena National Vocational College (LNVC). Since this law authorized the offering of collegiate courses, the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education (BSIE) and the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BSIT) were offered in 1985 and seven years after (1992) the Bachelor of Science in Marine Engineering. In 1994 additional courses were offered, namely: Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd), Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd), Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation (BSMT), Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management (BSHRM) and the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). To cater the needs of the employees in the province who had to cross the rough seas in order to upgrade themselves, the college offered Graduate Programs in 1993 with two degrees; namely: the Master of Arts in Educational Management (MAEM) and the Master of Arts in Industrial Education (MAIE) and in 1997, the Master of Public Management (MPM).

On March 3, 1995, House Bill No. 402 was approved into law by his Excellency, President Fidel V. Ramos as Republic Act No. 7947 converted LNVC into the Siquijor State College (SSC). The conversion was made through the joint efforts of Hon. Orlando B. Fua Sr., Representative of the Lone District of Siquijor, Hon. Miguel Romero, Representative of the Second District of Negros Oriental, and the Siquijodnons. Siquijor State College is authorized to offer courses in higher technological education leading to the degrees of bachelor of science in civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, industrial engineering, education, forestry, fishery, nautical, physical and natural sciences, and such other collegiate and/or degree courses as may be approved by the Board of Trustees of the Siquijor State College, in addition to its present curricular offerings in the four-year secondary trade and general secondary curricula, two-year technical education curriculum, degree courses leading to the degrees in Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education and Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology. In answer to the call for higher technology additional courses were offered, viz: Associate in Computer Science (1996), Bachelor of Science in Computer Technology (1999) and the Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology (2000).

When Dr. Tan retired December 31, 1999, Dr. Rosita T. Bidad, the Vice-President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) of the College was appointed by the Board of Trustees as Officer-in-Charge (OIC) until Dr. Dominador Q. Cabanganan was appointed as the second College President on August 15, 2000. He was re-appointed as College President effective August 14, 2004.

When Dr. Cabanganan retired from the service on August 14, 2008, he was bestowed by the Board of Trustees as Professor Emeritus. On August 21, 2008, a new College President was elected by the Board of Trustees in the person of Dr. Baldomero R. Martinez, Jr. On August 19, 2013, Dr. Maria Imogen Tan-Quilicot assumed into office as its fourth and first woman college president.

In summer 2003, a cooperative program among Siquijor State College, the Philippine Physics Society, the Silliman University Center of Development in Physics and Ateneo de Davao University Physics Department was initiated. About 20 Physics teachers participated in the program. In June 2005, a special graduation ceremony held at Siquijor State College granted the degree Master of Arts in Science Teaching (Physics) to ten of the participants and the degree Master in Teaching (Physics) to three of the participants.

A new campus is named as Siquijor State College-Lazi Campus was added in 2006.

With the continued support of Siquijor State College to the PPS Community, SSC was chosen to host one annual convention. Eventually, SSC graciously hosted the 30th Annual National Physics Seminar-Workshop Convention, 21st National Physics Olympics & 16th National Physics Fair of the Philippine Physics Society during the PPS Jade Celebration on April 2–5, 2008 with the theme: “Physics and Magic, Mystics, and Wizardry.” Due to the retirement of Dr. Gerardo C. Maxino, National President of the PPS and Physics Professor of Silliman University in 2006, he eventually opened the Maxino College at Bagacay, Dumaguete City in 2007. Hence, the office and publication of the PPS was then transferred officially at Maxino College. On May 12, 2010, Dr. Maxino visited SSC and presented the proposal to the College President, Dr. Baldomero R. Martinez, Jr. The latter agreed to offer the second batch of the Tri-Summer Institute Physics program at Siquijor State College starting Summer 2011 after informing the Board of Trustees of the schedule. This is the very reason why the second batch of the Tri-Summer Institute Physics program is a cooperative program among Siquijor State College, the Philippine Physics Society (PPS), and Maxino College, Dumaguete City and Ateneo de Davao University, Davao City.

A second run of the program, this time with the inclusion of the Master of Science in Science Education (Physics), it started in 2011 and finished in 2013 through the collaboration of Siquijor State College, the Philippine Physics Society, and Maxino College, with the latter as instructional venue. In July 2013, a special graduation ceremony held at Siquijor State College granted the degree Master of Science in Science Education (Physics Teaching) to eight of the participants and the degree Master in Teaching (Physics) to one of the participants.
