BIGGKAS+, the institutional outreach and extension arm of UA&P, renewed its partnership with the University’s adopted barangay, Barangay Pineda, Pasig City. A memorandum of understanding was signed on January 31, 2024, by UA&P President Dr. Winston Conrad Padojinog and Brgy. Pineda Chairman Francisco De Leon.

BIGGKAS+ stands on the same underpinnings and basic design of the original BIGGKAS initiated by the Civics Desk of the Center for Student Affairs. The program has seven basic initiative extension clusters, namely: Basa, Isip, Gawa, Galing, Katesismo, Arte, and Sports. The plus (+) sign is a provision made to cater to a wider range of projects that may not be covered by the existing extension clusters.

Moreover, the plus sign connotes that the program has evolved into the larger UA&P community, allowing faculty and staff to now share their time, talent, and expertise with the various extension programs or projects that adheres to sustainable, relevant and needs-based approaches. The schools-based Operations Committees are expected to encourage their faculty and staff to participate in extension services.
