University President, Dr. Theresita V. Atienza, opened the activity by referencing “The Achievement Habit: Stop Wishing, Start Doing, and Take Command of Your Life,” a book written by Bernard Roth emphasizing that “talents and good ideas are only part of the equation. The next step – the harder step – is doing, taking responsibility for designing success in our own life, and this includes applying the design thinking principles like making sure you work on the real problems.” She then concluded her welcoming remarks with the words, “most of the great things in life are accomplished by simply getting started; put pen to paper, write a few lines of your research, stretch the canvass, move your feet, and you’re already 90% there.”

Acting Director of Research Management Office (RMO) Mr. Angelito P. Bautista Jr. presented the Rationale of the Program highlighting the vital importance that the Extension Office plays in the University and the community where it is located. He also introduced the program’s objectives, indicating that the conduct of this program marked the beginning of the harmonious and holistic relationship of the university stakeholders and its extension programs, projects, and activities. The one-day online Research and Extension Capability Advancement Program (RECAP) was facilitated by the Officer-in-Charge of the Extension Management Office, Mr. Lenard F. Bien, who was also the resource speaker on the orientation of what the Extension Services of the University are. He also discussed the University Extension Agenda, Thrusts, and Priorities along with the QCU Extension Principles. He also oriented the participants of the different Integrated Extension Programs and introduced the QCU SMILE Extension Program as the overarching and umbrella extension program of the University.

After the orientation and discussions, a workshop was conducted wherein the participants presented the outputs. He ended the program by providing the participants with working knowledge on reporting and documenting their extension projects, programs, and activities.

To close the program, the University Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Bradford Antonio C. Martinez, invited the participants to inspire others in doing extension service.
