CHED grants Dasma school autonomous status

DAMARIÑAS CITY, Cavite, January 17 (PIA) -- The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) granted the De La Salle University-Dasmariñas the “Autonomous status and level 3 re-accreditation” in recognition of the university accomplishments and adherence to quality assurance including commitment to public accountability.

In a letter sent by CHED Chairman Emmanuel Angeles to DLSU-D President Brother Gus Boquer last March 17, it cited the Commission en banc resolution No. 086-2009 which granted the university autonomy for five years starting last March 11, 2009 to March 30, 2014.

In the resolution, it mentioned that DLSU-D satisfies the three major criteria set by CHED which is the long tradition of integrity and untarnished reputation, commitment to excellence (70 percent), and sustainability and viability of operations (30 percent).

This status will give DLSU-D the following benefits: (1) Exemption from the issuance of Special Order for its graduates, (2) Freedom from regular monitoring and evaluation by CHED, (3) Priority in the grant of subsidies and other financial incentives/assistance from the Commission whenever funds are available, (4) Privilege to determine and prescribe its curricular programs to achieve global competence, (5) Privilege to offer new course(s)/program(s) in the undergraduate and graduate level without securing permit/authority from CHED, except in disciplines that are under moratorium, (6) Privilege to establish branch/es or satellite campus/es without securing government authority from CHED, and (7) Authority to grant Honoris Causa to those deserving, per pertinent provisions of existing CHED issuance on conferment of honorary degrees.
