The inception of the Criminology degree program here at SACLI, through thick and thin, was due to the concepts and convincing proposal of the late CSUPT. Eduardo Pablo Sebastian- a close friend and a buddy to the owner of the school-DR. POTENCIANO A. ANDAMAN, is traced way back on April 15 2005, when the CHED issued the temporary permit to operate. The untimely demise of General E.P. Sebastian caused the Administration to pull-out Mr. Edwin Leaño Sebastian as Chief security officer of the Philippine Planters Product Incorporated to head the College of Criminology. Mr. Edwin L. Sebastian was then designated as the program coordinator-he stood-up and managed the Department in its academic and administrative concerns. Having sixteen (16) students, PSUPT. Rufina M. Baldovino- a Criminologist and a holder of Ph.D. in Criminology too, was designated as the first Dean with Mr. Joseph R. Reyes, also a Criminologist, and a skilled martial artist, as the first Instructor.
On March 23, 2007, SACLI was fully recognized as one of the Schools offering BS Criminology in the country. Having the prestige, the enrollment continues to increase. Atty. Jade A. Andaman, despite of her hectic schedules as Vice President for Legal Affairs, spared her time teaching criminal laws and jurisprudence with other lawyers in the province of Quezon-Atty. Rhaetia C. Abcede, Atty. Rowena V. Arboleda and an LlB graduate-Laurice Ilagan. While, legal medicine was regularly taught by Dr. Rosanno A. Villanueva- a resident medical Doctor of Saint Anne General Hospial (son-in-law of the owner of the school). Professional subjects were taught by; Ms.Elena P. Tuguinay, Ms. Monalee E. Chow, Mr. Joseph R. Reyes. Other technical and Defense tactics subjects were taught by Mr. Edwin L. Sebastian.
Committed to the Vision of the School, the Administration never ceased to re-tool and equip the faculty members and the College of Criminology as a whole. Second semester AY 2007-2008, marks the installation of a new Dean (the second Dean of CoC)- Mr. Randolf A. Guiang, a holder of MS Criminology, hailed academically from the Baguio Colleges Foundation now University of the Cordilleras- A holder of Famers award in Criminology education and widely known as the top – performing school of Criminology in the Philippines. Dean Randolf A. Guiang served SACLI with utmost dedication for almost three years.
In the name of continuity and progress, Mr. Joni L. Pagandiyan, with the promising partnership and aligned vision with SACLI, came as member of the academic community in June 2010. He earned his BS Criminology and M.S. Criminology at the University of Baguio- A pioneering school offering criminology in the cordilleras and known producer of topnotch Criminology graduates in the licensure examination in the country. With his teaching and administrative experience in the schools he had been with, now being the current Dean (third Dean), possesses and shares, his passion and quest with his fellow faculty members in the College of Criminology as well as the whole family of SACLI, to mold and produce topnotch, effective and efficient law enforcement characters in the pursuit of justice.
The College of Criminology is indeed recognized by the Philippine Regulatory Commission (PRC) when the first batch hurdled the board examination. SACLI’s first passer, Ms. Wilna A. Caiña, is now in the PNP. Another humble accomplishment is when the institution bagged 100% passing rate in the April 7,8 & 9, 2010 board examination. Bringing honor and fame to SACLI were newly registered Criminologists- Cairyl Jake D. Abuy, who is now teaching within the institution, and Paul William S. Lincuran who is now vying for slot in the PNP. These are all, at the outset, our battle cry – to elevate SACLI as the seat of academic excellence and sustainable development
