CHED awards Xavier University autonomous status

Cagayan de Oro City (30 November) -- The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has granted Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan five-year autonomy in recognition of Xavier's commitment to quality education, research and extension work, and the excellent performance of its graduates.

Autonomy is given to select higher education institutions based on the competitiveness of their programs manifested in established Centers of Excellence or Centers of Development, and the outstanding performance of their graduates in licensure exams, among other standards.

"We have worked hard over the last few years to regain our autonomy," said Xavier President Fr Jose Ramon Villarin SJ in his memo to the University community.

Fr Villarin acknowledged the enormous contributions of the teachers, staff and administrators of Xavier in pursuing such recognition. But most of all, he acknowledged the important contribution of the students.

"We would not have received this [distinction] were it not for the sterling performance of our students," he said.

With this honor, Fr Villarin reminded the University to "learn to use this gift well for our students and for our people."

Some of the benefits of having an autonomous status include entitlement to grants and other financial assistance from CHED, and the privilege to determine and prescribe curricular programs to enhance global competitiveness. (PIA) [top]
