Republic Central Colleges (RCC) is one of the higher education institutions in Angeles City known for its assertiveness in welcoming changes. One of its important core values is excellence, which specifically refers to pursuing high standards in the performance of its functions in instruction, research and community extension. Turning this specific core value into reality, a 5-day collaboration program was created between Sun Moon University (SMU) of South Korea and Republic Central Colleges and held from July 15 to July 19, 2019.
