The study determined the level of awareness and acceptance of the vision and mission of Kalinga State University among the different stakeholders of the College of Engineering and Information Technology specifically, Faculty, Staff, Students, and the Community. Descriptive research design was employed using a researcher-made survey questionnaire. The results revealed that students, faculty, and staff respondents were very aware of the Vision and Mission of Kalinga State University and that their level of acceptance on the Vision and Mission was very acceptable. The finding implies that information was disseminated properly and clearly through recitation of the VM during flag ceremonies, part of program invitations and on billboards posted on conspicuous places inside and outside the school vicinity. On the other hand, the community-respondents accepted moderately the stated Vision and Mission of KSU and are moderately aware due to the fact that the university has not yet intensified its information dissemination drive on the new vision and mission of the institution to the community. The study further underscored that there is a correlation between the awareness and acceptability of the Vision and Mission by the stakeholders. Moreover, the responses of the respondents show no significant difference on the level of awareness and acceptability towards the vision and mission of KSU. It can be deduced that the more the involvement of the stakeholders to the school activities of the university and if information was disseminated clearly through different sources such as social media, radio broadcast, bulletin boards, and the like the more they become aware of the University’s vision and mission.
