Silliman University will establish a Psychological Research Laboratory, following a donation made by alumni of Psychology Class of 1981.

Representatives of the Psychology ‘81 alumni batch, Leo Fortugaleza, Brigitte Valencia, and Merlou Calumpang- Fuentes, did an ocular visit of the Luz Ausejo Hall which will be used as the laboratory.

Fortugaleza said their batch was supposed to pool funds for an in-person reunion but instead decided to fund the establishment of the Laboratory. The batch donated P185,000, which Fortugaleza said was turned over to the SU administration last year.

Dr. Rogen Ferdinand Alcantara, Psychology Department chair, said the Laboratory will be used to conduct psychological experiments and research.

With the Laboratory, he said the Department can upgrade student experience in courses like Experimental Psychology, as well as improve the quality of research data.

“It is but proper to have a specialized facility intended for experimental activities,” he said.

Alcantara said the facility will follow standard interior design and set-up of a psychological research laboratory, including an observation room, audio and visual recorders, and a computer set for documentation purposes. The Department plans to inaugurate the Laboratory by the start of the school year. (OIP)
