Since he became vice-president for administration and finance of the Capiz State University (CapSU) in 2008, Dr. Aladino L. Leccio has consistently delivered his share of noteworthy accomplishments for this fast-growing university.
In 2010, Dr. Leccio reviewed, updated and submitted the plantilla to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and likewise led the administration’s move to evaluate, review and submit for the NBC 5th cycle. Among others, Leccio initiated this in support of the prerogative of CapSU President Editha Magallanes to compensate the university’s workforce as it seeks to achieve academic excellence and quality services to its clientele.
In support of Dr. Magallanes’s thrust for the university and working closely with the CapSU community, Leccio has allowed for and encouraged trainings and professional enhancement activities and involvements for its administrative personnel, faculty and staff on gender and development orientation on programs, activities, projects and budget preparation.
Dr. Leccio facilitated the awarding of scholarships from the Alliance of Volunteer Educators (AVE), a party list at the House of Representatives chaired by Congressman Eulogio Magsaysay. Leccio also made substantial efforts to prepare and submit resolutions to AVE and the six sectors, moving for the construction of the central administration building at Capiz State University Dayao Campus worth Php10M. His linkage with AVE facilitated the release of supplemental budgets across a number of campuses from 2011 onwards.
As fruits of these partnerships and linkage, CapSU Burias Campus has been granted 500,000 pesos for the renovation of the old library; while CapSU Sigma Campus is given 150,000 pesos to complete the second phase of the construction of the AVE Teen Center. From AVE, CapSU Dayao Campus will also receive 250,000 pesos to finance the second phase of its stage construction.
Also, under his leadership, the Mambusao Farmers Multi-Purpose Cooperative was cited the Most Outstanding Cooperative by the Province of Capiz for 2010.

In all these, Leccio says that the primary purpose is to help the campuses advance their infrastructure and continually enhance their personnel. These and other accomplishments of the university are attributed to the genuine support and all-out commitment of the officials, faculty, staff and students even as it also enjoys fruitful collaboration and assistance from private organizations and government agencies.
Through VP Leccio's constant lobbying, the CapSU administration sees brighter prospects in relocating its central office at the CapSU Dayao Campus. On the said site will rise the future Central Administration Building. For this, among others, Leccio announced the P1M initial grant through the office of Sen. Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. The said amount will be released to start the construction of the said administration building. According to Leccio, groundbreaking for building construction will also commence before the year ends.
Hardworking and unrelenting in his service while being staunch in his campaigns and lobbying for the university, Leccio leads the new brand of leaders of this university whose initiatives and accomplishments will exceed everyone’s expectations and benefit CapSU constituents and the bigger community.
