Themed as “Seminar-Workshop on Preparation of University Accreditation Exhibits”, the output-based learning event centered upon the preparation and standardization of University exhibits for accreditation.
Giving an overview on the procedures of accreditation, OLFU’s Quality Management Representative Dr. Ferdinand F. Santos also highlighted the achievements of the University; specifically, recognition from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and various accrediting bodies.
Dr. Ana Liza P. Ocampo, Head of the Center for Guidance Services, tackled the goals and strategies outlined in the OLFU Roadmap 2020.
After, Dean Olive De Vera explained the exhibits on the following accreditation areas: Faculty, Instruction, and Laboratory and Physical Plant. Linking through, RDIC Director Dr. Michael Joseph S. Diño then presented the required exhibits on areas of Research and Linkages.
Mr. Christian del Rosario and Ms. Reena Asturias, research specialists of the RDIC, facilitated the workshop on the preparation of checklists, documents, templates and formats. An open forum and presentation of workshop outputs followed, thereafter.
