The advocacy had a formal backing when the institution was declared as the center of education and training for non-agricutural cooperatives and Cooperatives as field of specialization for Business courses was offered by the University's College of Business and Cooperatives. On March 31, 1989; a separate academic unit, the College of Cooperatives, formerly Institute of Cooperatives, was established by virtue of the approval of the PUP Board of Regents. In schoolyear 1989-1990, CC offered the Bachelor in Cooperatives program—a spun-off course from the PUP College of Business—to three sections of freshmen and a group of shiftees from other business courses. Romulo T. Martin and Corazon R. Mabagos were designated as the founding Director and founding area chair, respectively. In 1990, Herminia E. Manimtim was appointed head of the Extension Services and Herly Aguarino served as the officer-in-charge for the Non-traditional Study Program. In 1992, Sr. Marietta P.
