PAASCU revisits UB

The Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (PAASCU) Team was in town last October 10-11, 2019, to revisit the level III accreditation status of the University of Bohol’s core programs in Liberal Arts, Elementary and Secondary Education, and Business Administration.

PAASCU is a private, voluntary non-profit organization that accredits academic programs that meet a high standard of quality education. It judges an institution not by comparison with other sound institutions, but primarily by the degree to which each institution’s avowed purposes are matched in actual practice in the various areas being evaluated.

An accredited school is considered as a genuinely excellent school as it is effectively doing what it should be doing as per its stated purpose and objectives.

The team was warmly welcomed by UB President Dr. Victoriano B. Tirol, III, VP for Academics Dr. Lumin T. Pamaran, VP for Administration Ms. Ria Eva M. Sevilla, VP for Finance Dr. Maricel A. Tirol, Atty. Ulysses B. Tirol, Chairman of the UB Board of Trustees, immediate UB past president Dr. Nuevas T. Montes and members of the administrative and academic council.

On the other hand, the PAASCU team was composed of Dr. Moises Alexander Asuncion, VP for Academic Affairs of Saint Mary’s University in Bayombong, Nueva Ecija; Dr. Cesar Medulla, Jr., Director of Institutional Development and Quality Assurance Office also of Saint Mary’s University.

Other PAASCU team members included Dr. Ana Linda Santos, VP for Academic Affairs of St. Anthony’s College in San Jose de Buenavista, Antique; Ms. Judith Dabon, Educational Consultant of St. Theresa’s College of Cebu, Dr. Vernon Totanes, Director of the Rizal Library of the Ateneo de Manila University; Engr. Louie Ian Mariano, Director of the Letran Research Center of Colegio de San Juan de Letran; Ms. Mellany Mejia, University Registrar and Director of Admissions of Angeles University Foundation in Angeles City; and Ms. Edelaine Rae Agcaoili, PAASCU Representative.
