10 PSU programs eye AACCUP accreditation

THE PANGASINAN STATE UNIVERSITY (PSU) once again subjected itself to the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP) accreditation in four of its campuses including Bayambang, Lingayen, Sta. Maria and Urdaneta.

Led by Professor Nestor C. Competente of the Rizal Technological University, 29 accreditors conducted document analyses and evaluation to the programs of: Bayambang Campus (Bachelor in Public Administration and BS in Business Administration; Sta. Maria Campus (Bachelor of Elementary Education, Bachelor of Secondary Education, BS in Agribusiness Management and BS in Agricultural Engineering); Lingayen Campus (BS in Mathematics, Bachelor of Secondary Education and Bachelor of Technical Teacher Education); and Urdaneta City Campus (BS in Architecture) after the opening program at the Convention Hall.

Said accreditation is the second survey visit conducted by the AACCUP Inc. in PSU for this academic year 2017-2018 following the successful visit last May, 2018 where nine programs were evaluated.

On the following day, accreditors proceeded to their assigned campuses to conduct site visit or campus tour to further verify and gather more relevant information as well as interview key informants.

The accreditation ended through a simultaneous Exit Conferences by Campus and General Closing Program at Lingayen Campus whereby accreditors enumerated the strengths and areas needing improvement.

Areas that had been assessed were: Vision, Mission, Goals and Objectives; Faculty; Curriculum; and Instruction; Support to Students; Research; Extension and Community Involvement; Library; Physical Plants and Facilities; Laboratories; and Administration.

AACCUP accreditation is one of the quality assurance mechanisms which supports the University’s desire to improve in all its program offering along the areas visited.
