A center of excellence (COE) is a department within a higher education institution (HEI) that continuously demonstrates excellent performance in the areas of instruction, research and publication, extension and linkages, and institutional qualifications.
Meanwhile, a center of development (COD) is a department within a HEI that demonstrates the potential to become a COE in the future.
The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) identifies, supports, and develops COEs in different areas, sustaining excellence in HEIs by enhancing their teaching, research, and service programs to further nation building and national development.
