Challenges of physics education in Mindanao State University–Main Campus: A post-siege Marawi

  • Jae Lord Dexter Filipinas Department of Physics, Mindanao State University–Main Campus

Abstract

The Main Campus of Mindanao State University (MSU) is within 5-km of ground zero of the 2017 Marawi City siege. About a year after the siege the Department of Physics of MSU–Main Campus has jump started from this upset. This report compares the status of the Department before and after the siege, as well as its future projections for Physics Education in the area. It will acknowledge the support and opportunities that have arrived from various agencies and institutions to uplift the condition of the Department. The insights gained from recovery efforts will also be shared.
