To identify critical functions of the offices of the University and put it into writing to be a formal document of the University, the Institutional Development and Quality Assurance Office (IDQAO) spearheaded a handbook writing workshop.
Heads of the different schools/units/offices attended the whole-day activity. The first part of the workshop or the morning session was devoted to the crafting of the draft manual of operational procedures and guidelines of each office. It was agreed that the manuals should have the institutional vision-mission and objectives, followed by the offices’ vision-mission and objectives. The organizational structure of the units must also be provided as well as the functions of the members/staff of the offices. Next would be the general guidelines of the different units wherein the heads must provide specific strategies or procedures on how their office works and how they could practice the University’s core values in their respective domain.
Fr. Renillo H. Sta. Ana, CICM, University President, stressed in his opening message that the vision-mission and objectives of the different units must be associated with the University’s vision-mission and objectives and must be in line with the University’s core values depending on the fundamental function of the office/unit.
He said that these documents will help the offices establish its distinct functions and organize the tasks and services of each unit.
He also mentioned the importance of these documents which are meant for future use like the application of the Institutional Sustainability Assessment (ISA) and Typology of the University.
The said activity was held from 8 o’clock in the morning to 5 o’clock in the afternoon on Sept. 6, 2014 at the Aula Maria, Apo Pilo Building. #
