Liberating the SUCs from limited resources is a challenge they face; otherwise excellence in the areas of instruction, research, extension, and production will be at stake. As such, they need to establish income generating projects or IGPs. Thus, a descriptive study evaluated the Income Generating Projects (IGPs) of the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in Region VIII. The detailed assessment of the IGPs of the SUCs focused on the profile of the IGP administrators and employees; profile of IGPs of SUCs in Region VIII. Moreover, the amount of revolving fund of the SUCs for its IGPs also differed. From among the many problems encountered, it was on “inadequate funding due to limited ability to access external financing” and “limited internal financial resources due to the deteriorating university financial burden”. Thus, it was recommended that administrators and the entire management of the different SUCs in Region should strengthen the operations of IGPs through giving it as a priority.
