On my 7th month with CATSU, I am pleased to share that the following proposed new courses/academic programs were given the green light by the Board of Regents to be applied with CHED and other regulatory bodies:

1. Juris Doctor

2. Doctor of Medicine

3. MA in Nursing

4. BS Public Health

5. BS Radiologic Technician

6. BS Medical Technology

7. BS Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture

8. BS Marine Transportation

9. BS Forestry

10. BS Fisheries (major in Ocean Science)

11. BS Textile Engineering

The Executive Committee composed of the 3 VP’s and 3 AVP’s and the Chief Finance Officer met yesterday to work on these program applications along with the following special projects under my Vision of HOPE:

1. Economic Zones

2. CATSU Foundation

3. CATSU Provident Fund

4. CATSU Endowment Fund

5. Level IV Accreditation of CATSU

6. Centers for Excellence and Development

7. Inclusion in QS World Ranking of Universities

8. Consortia and MOA with International Universities

9. University Research Agenda and Publication

10. Student Review Centers for Board Exams

11. Sentro ng Wika at Kultura and “Bantayog ng Wika”

12. Anduyog Extension Program

13. Smart Campus and Satellite Learning Centers

14. Modern Agriculture

All these are happening simultaneously in the University. As it is, we are working on both the soft and infra projects while we pursue academic excellence in the University. We are also making sure that we balance Science and the Arts. We shal push for both the Scientific and Creative Arts Career System in the University.

Team effort tabi ini. I am just glad that we are getting all the support from inside and outside the University.

In the middle of all these, we are working with Eagles on the CATSU Mini Chapel inside the Main Building. It is always important that we prioritize the faith and value formation of our community members amidst all these projects. All these things will pale if we fail to share the proper values to our students and employees. l via Pres. Patrick Azanza
