In the observance of the National Women’s Month, the PSU Binmaley Campus holds a one-day seminar for women on March 22, 2017 at the Campus Social Hall. This year’s celebration focused on the theme, “We Make Change Work For Women”.
Four distinguished women from different fields served as the Resource Speakers of the said event. Atty. Geraldine U. Baniqued, Legal Provincial Officer of the Province of Pangasinan, talked on the Magna Carta of Women while Mrs. Grace M. Festiken, Gender and Development (GAD) Coordinator of Labrador District, shared an Inspiring Story of Women for Positive Change. The other two speakers are Mrs. Jesusa M. Sanchez, Coordinator of Student Services, Alumni Affairs, Admission, Guidance and Testing and Mrs. Mylene R. Abalos, faculty member, both from the PSU Binmaley Campus. Mrs. Sanchez inspired the students with her success story being a cancer survivor while Mrs. Abalos shared her views on Women Empowerment through Personality Development.
Dr. Marcelo C. Gutierrez, Jr., Campus Executive Director gave his welcome remarks to the participants of the seminar. He was impressed by the concerted efforts of the faculty and staff in the realization and success of the celebration. Special mention was addressed to Mrs. Gina S. Millamina and Jean Camille C. Ermino, GAD Coordinators for spearheading the seminar.
Dr. Rosario B. Miguel, College Dean of the Teacher Education and Mr. Jonathan R. Jose, Administrative Officer, also graced the occasion.
The Mechanical Engineering Department passed the second level accreditation held last December 6-8, 2016.
The accreditation was conducted by Accrediting Agency of the Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc. The accrediting body looked into different areas, such as mission and vision, faculty curriculum and instruction, support to student’s research, extension, library, physical plant and facilities, laboratories, and administration.
The tremendous effort put forth in the preparation of documents and facilities paid off, as the department was granted Level II re-accredited status.
ME Department was able to meet the requirements to be accorded the level 2 status, as it has obtained 3.50 grand mean. To qualify for level 2 status, the department should meet a minimum area mean of 3.00. Having garnered more than what is required, the ME Department is proud to be given “very good” descriptive rating.
The above-mentioned rating reflects the concerted effort of the ME faculty headed by Engineer Marilou Fernandez, under the deanship of very able Engineer Resurreccion V. Garrote, Dean of College of Engineering and Architecture.
