The Pamantasan ng Cabuyao (PnC) designed and implemented extension programs that created an impact on the socio-cultural and socio-economic aspects of its clientele. The study determined the impact of the extension programs of PnC among the residents of Baclaran and Butong in Cabuyao City. A sustainable extension program was developed based on the identified needs of community. With the use of the normative-descriptive method, norms or averages such as competencies and characteristics of the extension programs of PnC were identified. Clientele from the two communities sufficiently agree that the PnC’s community extension programs had an impact on community development, enhanced clientele attributes, and improved entrepreneurship; they moderately agree on increased livelihood income. Significant differences were disclosed based on the extension programs’ enhanced clientele attributes and community development. The impact of the PnC’s extension program to enhanced clientele attributes, improved entrepreneurship, increased livelihood income, and community development is significantly valued by the two community. The two community identified the components for a sustainable extension program. These include skills trainings on reading, computer literacy, livelihood, massage therapy and other health programs, Philippine government, constitutions and other related laws on human rights, basic accounting and bookkeeping, business management, basic electricity, electronics services and other engineering programs, community governance, human behavior, attitudes, values and personality development, and arts and culture.
