PIA Press Release

First NSU president sets major plans for the university

By Rodrigo S. Victoria

Naval, Biliran (12 February) -- In her bid to put a roadmap for the growth and advancement of the only university in the province of Biliran, the first president of Naval State University (NSU) laid down major plans which will serve as the guideposts of her administration.

Dr. Edita Sabonsolin Genson, the first university president of NSU, said in her inaugural speech during her investiture on February 11, 2010, that there is a need for a new vision and changes in policies and practices of the new university.

She emphasized four major plans namely: expand national and international practicum programs, re-engineer academic curricula, create a unit that will promote linkages with local industries and foreign universities, and intensify and strengthen the research, extension and production services.

She added that the first major thrust can be done by obtaining more bilateral academic agreements and through liberalizing twinning programs with foreign universities.

With regards to re-engineering the curricula, she proposed to offer new emerging courses in science and technology to make Information Technology (IT) courses globally competitive and market responsive, convert business management major courses to Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship and to include agri-business subjects in agriculture courses.

However, she stressed that in order to effectively implement all these future plans, they must possess the courage and wisdom to pursue the collective task and shared responsibility with energy, synergy and God-given leadership.

She also reminded the university faculty, administration employees, students, parents and members of the community to share the burden with the biggest challenge that lies ahead.

Furthermore, she also presented in her speech several significant achievements and accomplishments in her administration in the field of academic performance, infrastructure and institutional development. (PIA-Biliran) [top]
