Towards our common hopes

HAPPY New Year to all!
As we begin the new year 2015, we also wish to open the year at the University with the launching of a newsletter called The President’s Courier (.pdf). The spirit behind this initiative is linked with the efforts we have made since two years ago, when we began the formulation of a new strategic plan after the old one had expired. The new strategic plan is made in collaboration with the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA), which, through its expertise, has helped numerous Local Government Units-National Government Agencies achieve goals using the Balanced Score Card. In our last Board of Trustees meeting we have asked the Board to approve the new strategic plan and we are now in the process of cascading this plan to the various units in the University.
The primary role, therefore, of this newsletter that we are launching is to be a vehicle where we can report the undertakings of the various units to the whole academic community, so everyone can be apprised of how much progress we have made in relation to the collective objectives and goals we have set for ourselves. This newsletter will serve as a platform where vital initiatives, programs and activities from various units and departments are disseminated so every member of our community will be informed and, in turn, will be encouraged to participate in our various initiatives.
