In Academic Year (AY) 2014–2015, the Board of Trustees
of Far Eastern University approved an institutional
aspiration statement it had developed with the senior
management team. In essence, the statement sets
the high challenge that FEU be among the top five
universities in the Philippines by 2020—an ambition
that is further articulated in terms of the following
objectives:
Three pathways are identified for achieving these
objectives:
•
Regulatory excellence, which means that, both as
a higher-education institution and in its academic
programs, FEU exhibits the highest standards set by
the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and
accrediting agencies;
a.
•
Relevant excellence, which sees to it that the FEU
curriculum adequately prepares graduates for the
world of work; and
•
Adaptable excellence, which ensures that the FEU
college experience empowers graduates with
life skills that enable them to flourish in a fastchanging, globalizing world.
b.
c.
provide quality higher education through industryresponsive and outcomes-based curricula,
complemented by distinctive Research and
Development programs in selected disciplines
and public policy, which will open [to graduates]
opportunities in careers that contribute to the
economic development of the country;
produce [as a result of (a)] graduates who can
compete with their peers in the world of work
both locally and globally—who have integrity and
are capable in their professions or disciplines,
hardworking, and good communicators with critical
thinking skills; and
deliver this educational mission with operational
excellence and financial soundness.
Finally, these pathways to different aspects of
excellence are founded on three support structures:
talent development, program and services development,
and operational excellence in execution and
streamlining.
The management team is currently in the process
of crafting specific strategies under these support
structures. An intriguing question, however, is: Even
now (i.e., before the strategies are formulated), what is
the state of Far Eastern University if assessed by this
institutional aspiration as the organizing principle?
In what follows, this report presents the programs and
activities under each of these support structures that, in
turn, facilitate FEU’s achievement of the different facets
of excellence.

Talent Development
A higher-education institution (HEI) can only be as good
as its faculty and staff. It is therefore reassuring to note
that there has been continuous improvement in their
academic credentials. Specifically, in AY 2014–2015, 75
members of the faculty and 5 employees belonging to
(academic and non-academic) support staff completed
advance academic degrees, earned international
certifications, or passed licensure examinations.
Moreover, 175 members of the teaching and academic
support staff are pursuing graduate studies in
disciplines aligned with their departmental affiliations.
Efforts were also underway for engendering a research
culture. The University Research Center continued to
conduct research mentoring seminars for the faculty. An
ethics review committee was formed to evaluate faculty
research applications. And a university research manual,
which sets forth policies on research, was finalized.
To ensure that the faculty would be familiar with university
policies and FEU’s culture of teaching and service as
well as updated on pedagogy (e.g., outcomes-based
education and test construction and evaluation), the
Teachers’ Academy and a number of academic departments
conducted seminars and workshops on these topics.
For its part, the Human Resource and Development
(HRD) office undertook activities that lay the
groundwork for operational excellence in execution. It
rationalized organization and staffing by standardizing

and updating the organizational chart and headcount
of FEU Manila, by assisting the HRD offices of the
other FEU schools in the same task, and by filling
up key posts throughout the FEU system of schools
through recruitment or cross-posting. In addition, HRD
continued to enhance the Human Resource Information
System (HRIS) database by integrating timekeeping
and payroll functions. As part of its usual functions,
HRD has also been managing the benefits and rewards
systems for faculty and staff as well as employee and
labor relations. It continues to conduct competencydevelopment programs for the staff as well.
Programs and Services Development
The quality of an HEI may be gleaned from its
accreditation status as an institution as well as from
those of its academic programs, the passing rates of
graduates in professional licensure examinations, and
the employability and career trajectories of alumni. Less
formally, educational quality may be seen in institutional
initiatives to improve standards and service delivery as
well as in innovation efforts.
On institutional excellence (by regulatory standards),
FEU can claim honor, being an autonomous university
since July 2012 and by virtue of CHED’s en banc
Resolution 238-2015, which extended the validity of
this status to December 31, 2015. Moreover, to ensure
that it retains institutional autonomy even by the new
and stricter criteria of CHED Memorandum Order 46
series of 2012, the University submitted itself to an
Institutional Sustainability Assessment exercise, which
CHED conducted in November 2014.
Academic Programs
This achievement notwithstanding, FEU continues to
be on a relentless march toward academic excellence.
To this end, the Academic Development office has
embarked on an aggressive schedule to increase
the number of accredited programs and upgrade
accreditation levels, as shown in Table 2.
Table 1 shows the current accreditation levels of FEU’s
academic programs. It indicates that the traditionally
popular academic offerings have attained Level III status.

In addition, the Institute of Tourism and Hotel
Management (ITHM) applied for and received
international accreditation for its BS Hotel and
Restaurant Management and BS Tourism Management
programs from the International Centre on Excellence in
Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE Australia).
This quality seal implies that ITHM’s programs meet
international standards—a much desired status in view
of the coming ASEAN Economic Community.
On FEU’s performance in professional licensure
examinations, passing rates indicate a generally
improving trend, as reported in Graph 1. Indeed, the
BS Medical Technology program has received four
consecutive awards for garnering passing rates that are
among the highest nationally, while the BS Architecture
program had topnotchers in recent examinations.

underscoring a commitment to relevant and adaptable
excellence. A number of academic departments updated
the curriculums of their programs based on new CHED
(outcomes-based) templates to meet accreditation
requirements and current professional and industry
standards. These programs include:

Recognizing that learning outcomes are at the core of
the quality of education, FEU has also embarked on
a major research undertaking to explore the impacts
of the college experience on Filipino students. In AY
2014–2015, it initiated the College Freshmen Survey,
which covered nine schools: Adamson University,
Baliuag University, Centro Escolar University (Malolos,
Makati, and Manila), Emilio Aguinaldo College (Cavite
and Manila), Far Eastern University (Cavite, Diliman,
Graph 1
Performance in latest Government Board Exams, 2013-2015
Manila (with Makati), and the Institute of Technology),
Jose Rizal University, Mapua Institute of Technology
(Intramuros and Makati), National University, and
Philippine Women’s University. The student-respondents
were asked about their high school backgrounds; the
locations of their permanent residence; their parents’
marital, economic, and education status; their living
arrangements in college; the factors behind their
school choice; what they hope to get from their college
education; their educational and work aspirations; how
frequently or rarely they engaged in particular activities;
and the life goals they hold most dearly (among others).
The initial survey results have been presented to different
audiences, and the final report is currently being edited
for publication as a monograph.
In the meantime, the 2015 version of the survey is being
prepared, with more schools participating (including,
among others, University of San Carlos (Cebu) and Xavier
University (Cagayan de Oro)). The significant increase
P R E S I D E N T ’ S
R E P O R T

in coverage obviously confirms the importance of this
research initiative. But it is a significant development for
the education sector as well, because 2015 is the last
chance for collecting data on College Freshmen who
went through a ten-year basic education cycle. When the
College Freshmen Survey is next implemented in 2018,
the student-respondents will have gone through Grades
11 and 12. In effect, schools that participated in the
2014 and 2015 surveys will be able to compare what
developmental difference Grades 11 and 12 had on their
College Freshmen of 2018 and henceforth.
Two additional research initiatives set for
implementation this year are the College Sophomore
Survey and the critical-thinking study. The College
Sophomore Survey intends to resurvey students in
the Freshmen sample last year who should now be
Sophomores. Asking them more or less the same
questions and comparing their answers as Sophomores
to those when they were Freshmen may provide
glimpses of their development or maturation during the
Freshman year.
In the case of the critical-thinking study, the idea is
to take a random (and thus representative) sample
of students in each year level and have them take a
critical-thinking test. Differences in the average scores
of two year levels, say, the fourth and first year, can then
be inferred as the increase or decrease in the criticalthinking skills that Seniors possess over Freshmen.
The full value of this study, however, will be reaped
starting next year, when the same students (except the
Seniors who will have graduated) will be resurveyed.
Differences in their individual test scores, which may be
interpreted as the development of their critical thinking
skills, can be analyzed in relation to factors such as
subjects taken or pedagogical methods to which the
students were exposed.
The findings in all these studies will be used not only to
understand the college experience of Filipino students,
but also to make the experience more effective and
transformative.

U N I V E R S I T Y
In the meantime, the Academic Development office
is studying for possible pilot testing an intervention
program suggested in Academically Adrift—that criticalthinking skills are developed when students have at
least one subject per semester that requires them to
digest 40 pages of assigned reading per week and to
write a 20-page term paper.
Student Development
A recent insight I’ve had is that education is an
experience good. In other words, like a movie (which is
another experience good), education is a good or service
whose quality (or impact on the student/consumer) is
not known at the outset.
An attribute of an experience good is that how it affects
an individual consumer depends on the consumer’s
engagement with it. (Thus, a movie’s impact depends on
how attentively one watches it and how receptive one
is to the movie’s premises, perspectives, and narratives.)
This implies that the more engaged a student is with
the school’s curricular and extracurricular offerings,
the more transformative and life-changing his or her
educational experience is likely to be.1
Viewed from the vantage point of this insight, FEU
is doing well in getting the students engaged via
extracurricular offerings that promote a civic spirit and
develop adaptability and life skills. In AY 2014–2015,
student-development activities both complemented and
enriched curricular endeavors by promoting serviceleadership through volunteerism, the hope being that
FEU students will become committed service-oriented
citizens. Leaders of student organizations underwent
immersions in outreach projects involving orphanages,
public schools, and non-governmental organizations and
attended seminars on various models of advocacy work.
Perhaps more importantly because of their wider impact,
half of the 59 student organizations implemented
collaborative community projects.
In addition, various forums exposed students to a number
of social issues. The Circles of Leadership Influence
Program (CLIP) seminars deepened the students’
understanding of such topics as the prospects for peace in
Partnerships and Placements
A key element in the vision of Nicanor Reyes Sr. was that
his school would offer programs that opened rewarding
careers for its graduates. This imperative is why alumni
and partner firms are important segments of the FEU
community and are the focus of the Alumni Relations
and Placement Services (ARPS) office.
Bangsamoro, living with persons with disabilities, disaster
management, heritage conservation, arts and culture
management, and the sociology of youth inactivity. The
Nicanor Reyes Memorial Lecture Series raised the student
awareness of health-related issues. The titles of the
lectures were: (a) Public Health Policy in the Philippines;
(b) Threats of Ebola Outbreak: Abate ... Protect ... Survive;
(c) Neglected Tropical Diseases in the Philippines; and (d)
The Philippine Health Care Delivery System.
Furthermore, capability-building seminars were
conducted on work attitudes, personal branding of
leadership, human resources management trends,
high-impact interview responses, disagreeing without
being disagreeable, fund-raising strategies, and effective
communication skills. And local and international
off-campus engagements allowed students to interact
with, and learn from, their peers in forums such as the
media congress, the scholars’ leadership symposium
in Cambodia, the conference on biology education and
research in a changing planet in Malaysia, and moot
court competitions and debate tournaments. On the last
set of activities, winning pride for their alma mater were
Communication majors, One Carlo Diaz and Sunshine
Mendoza, who won the first #SAGUPAAN: A Public Policy
Debate Competition on Philippine Elections, and JD-MBA
students, Marco Sana and Kaisey Elywill Paja, who won
second in the Philippine round of the prestigious Philip
C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition
and because of their strong performance were invited
to represent the Philippines in the international round,
which was held in Washington, D.C., on April 5 to 11,
2015.
In AY 2014–2015, ARPS persisted in its efforts to
organize the alumni by facilitating the formation and
reorganization of various alumni groups. Membership
in the Board of Trustees of the FEU Alumni Foundation
was expanded to include Institute representation and
a new Board was elected. ITHM being the youngest
Institute, the FEU Tourism and Hotel and Restaurant
Management Alumni Association was organized and its
officers elected. A core group of Institute of Education
(IE) alumni was formed to take the lead in reviving the
IE Alumni Association.
To build up the alumni network, ARPS expanded the
avenues for connecting with them. Using the alumni
page of the FEU website as well as social media
and email blasts, the office regularly disseminated
information on alumni activities and job openings.
It also launched the Green and Gold: Online Alumni
Newsletter and developed an FEU-ARPS LinkedIn
facility. In addition, it assisted various alumni groups in
Job Fair

their bonding and homecoming activities. Perhaps as a
result, it was able to significantly increase the number
of alumni card holders and to continuously update the
alumni database (which would enable FEU to conduct
better tracer studies).
To offer better placement services for FEU students, fresh
graduates, and alumni, ARPS reached out to industry
partners as well. It increased the number of firms with
whom FEU has a work-placement relationship and
continuously updated the industry-partner database. It
also installed the FEU RésuméLink online platform, which
connects potential employers with FEU alumni, graduating
students, and students looking for work and is used as a
data source on the employment status of graduates (a key
metric of relevant and adaptable excellence). Moreover,
to expand the reach of RésuméLink, it partnered with
Jobs180.com. Finally, it held two job fairs on the theme
“Finding the Right Tams for the Right Job” and conducted
placement learning sessions for students of IE.
Research and Linkages
As historically FEU has been more of a teaching
university, research remains a work-in-progress.
This said, the University has started to gear up its
research efforts to be more than simply compliant
with regulatory standards. In AY 2014–2015, the
University Research Center (URC) spearheaded efforts
to conceptualize research collaboration work with
member schools of the U-Belt Consortium in order to
secure funding from the Philippine Council for Industry
and Energy Research and Development under the
Department of Science and Technology.
Faculty members attended 197 conferences, 38 of which
were international (see Appendix p. 133). Published
papers included:

In addition, the faculty of the Institute of Architecture and
Fine Arts (IARFA) showed their creative works in an art
exhibit themed “Sinners and Saints” at the Cultural Center
of the Philippines from December 2014 to May 2015.
International linkages and research collaborations were
also forged with Taylor’s University, Malaysia; Amity
University, India; Deakin University, Australia; Universiti
Teknologi Malaysia (UTM); and National Institute of
Education (NIE), Singapore.
Evidence of an emergent collaborative research culture
has started to appear in the form of forums organized
by various Institutes and offices. IARFA took the lead in
putting together the Second National Conference on
Urban Studies. Hosted by the University of San Carlos
(USC) in Cebu on the theme “Urban Transitions: Spaces,
Society, and Culture,” the event was held on February
11 to 12, 2015, as an initial activity of the academic
linkage between FEU and USC. IE, for its part, hosted
a Symposium on Educational Leadership on February
7, 2015, with Dr. Goh Chor Boon, NIE Associate Dean,
as speaker. And the URC organized a Symposium on
Fostering Pro-Environmental Behavior towards a Culture
of Sustainability on February 13, 2015, with Dr. Choong

as speakers.
of the board of professional associations. (Please refer
to the Appendix p. 139) Moreover, two members of the
Institute of Law faculty drafted the new articles and
bylaws of the University Athletic Association of the
Philippines as part of the initiative of the presidents of
member schools to reorganize the league.
Community Extension and Outreach Services:
FEU Public Policy Center
In their individual capacities, faculty members also
played various roles in the events of their professional
societies. IARFA faculty participated as members of the
organizing committee and as delegates in the United
Architects of the Philippines Annual Convention from
April 24 to 26, 2015.
Community Extension and Outreach Services
Being a resource for its host city and country is said to
be the third function of a university, the first two being
the conferral of academic degrees and the pushing the
frontiers of knowledge through research (Barber, Donnelly,
and Rizvi, 2013). The high-minded initiative of FEU on
this front is Project TAMS2, a three-way partnership
with World Wide Fund for Nature–Philippines and the
Department of the Environment and Natural Resources
to raise the numbers of the Tamaraw in Mindoro and thus
save the indigenous species from extinction.
For various Institutes, Departments, and offices of FEU,
community extension and outreach were a wide range
of endeavors, including the National Service Training
Program activities; cleaning up and preparing public
schools for the opening of classes; conducting literacy,
livelihood, and sports clinics; distributing school
supplies to public school pupils; and helping in disasterrelief operations, among others.
For FEU faculty members, being a resource for the
country took the form of serving as officers or members
The FEU Public Policy Center (FPPC) is FEU’s second
institutional initiative to be a resource for the country—by
taking a leadership role in clarifying important national
issues. In AY 2014–2015, FPPC constituted its Board of
Trustees, with former FEU President Edilberto de Jesus
as President, Gianna Montinola as Corporate Secretary,
Elizabeth Melchor and Augusto Villalon as members, and
myself as Chair. It also adopted four themes as the focus
of the Center’s research and advocacy: Law and Business;
Media, Technology, and Society; Urban Environment; and
Education, Productivity, and Life Skills. A committee on
each theme is being formed, composed of a chair who
will set the directions of the theme and a coordinator
who will manage the projects.
FPPC’s policy and advocacy work during the past
academic year consisted of its hosting two forums on
high-profile issues: Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban
gave a seminar on “Testing the Limits of the
Constitution: The DAP Decision” on August 20, 2014,
and Christian Monsod, Amina Rasul, and Emmanuel
Bautista provided their variegated perspectives on “The
Bangsamoro Initiative: What is the Price of Peace?” on
February 24, 2014. And as this report is being written,
the Center is preparing to hold a panel discussion on
“Who is the Filipino Millennial?” on August 6, 2015,
based on the College Freshmen Survey results.
Operational Excellence in Execution and Streamlining
The quality of a university’s academic service delivery
depends in some measure on how its academic support
services are conducted. This section provides evidence
of the comprehensiveness and quality of these services
in FEU.

Admissions and Financial Assistance
The “front office” of FEU that handles student-applicants
and oversees the scholarship grants, the Admissions
and Financial Assistance (AFA) office conducted more
articulation activities, using a variety of events and
involving more faculty members. It also opened more
testing centers in Luzon and Mindanao. Moreover, to
increase the conversion rate of admitted applicants
to first-time enrollees, the office hosted two events,
articulation to parents and Make it FEU.
Anticipating the learning outcomes of the new
basic education curriculum, AFA commissioned the
development of a K-12-ready FEU College Admission
Test as well, which is ready for implementation.
On scholarship grants to students, AFA rationalized and
categorized the assistance programs into three types,
namely, merit, need, and service, to clarify their different
intents and improve their effectiveness. Based on this
new set of schemes, AFA data indicate that 9% of the
student population received some type of assistance in
AY 2014–2015.

As may be expected in a quality academic institution,
FEU’s Guidance and Counseling office implemented a
variety of programs and provided a plethora of services
to keep the students on track in their academic work
and prepare them for the world of work. These programs
included: Academic Achievers Development, Academic
Competence and Empowerment, Students-at-Risk, Peer
Counseling, International Students’ Empowerment, Drug
Abuse Prevention, Athletics Counseling, Children of
OFWs Support, Career Development. The services offered
comprised student orientation, individual counseling,
exit counseling, group counseling, academic counseling,
career counseling, referral service, assessment and
evaluation, and psychological consultation and follow
up.
In addition, the office enhanced the e-résumé,
online needs assessment, exit interviews, and the
Students’ Personnel Services Survey and Guidance
Folder to improve its effectiveness. It also acquired
new psychological tests for special target groups of
students to strengthen the testing program and actively
collaborated with the Institutes, academic services units,
and external organizations to provide guidance as well
as general counseling and career-counseling services to
students, including athletes.
To disseminate information about its services, programs,
and advocacies, the office published the G&C Research
Digest and the G&C Newsletter and produced informative
posters. Its head, Dr Sheila Hocson, also published No to
Bullying, a handbook on how to handle the problem in
schools.
Library
In an academic institution, well-stocked and updated
library resources are a must. In AY 2014–2015, the
University Library added 2,926 titles and 3,591 volumes
of print materials as well as CDs, DVDs, and electronic
books to its collection. It also renewed subscriptions
to print journals, such as Art and Architecture, Lippincott
Nursing, and various Filipiniana periodicals, and online
journal databases such as EBSCO, JSTOR, and the Gale
Virtual Research Library. In addition, it expanded the space
for the law library in FEU Makati to support the fledgling
JD program that is being started in that campus. Perhaps as
a result of these developments, the number of registered
users of library services increased to 995,246 (AY 20142015) from 132,830 (AY 2013-2014).
To facilitate the shift from the traditional pedagogical
modes to more outcomes-based and blended learning
(or mixed mode) strategies, EduTech trained 423
faculty members on how to use TIES in October 2014.
All have since uploaded their course syllabi and
learning materials to TIES. Moreover, IN conducted all
its comprehensive examinations using TIES. During
the summer break, EduTech also conducted a 20day intensive training workshop on mixed-mode
instructional strategies for 25 faculty members to
jumpstart the development of new learning modules.
President’s Committee on Culture
A distinction that sets FEU apart from other HEIs is
the mission to expose its students and the public at
large to art and culture—a charge that in FEU has been
given to the President’s Committee on Culture (PCC)
to spearhead. In AY 2014–2015, PCC’s season included
the following: Commissioned by the University, the FEU
A special distinction gained by the Library during the last
academic year was that its Special Collections section now
has the permanent exhibit of National Artist (for Literature)
Nick Joaquin’s Works and World.
Education Technology
As outcomes-based and learner-centered theories of
education have come to the fore, in effect changing
the role of the teacher from being the subject expert
to that of learning facilitator, technology-enabled
modes of delivery have become more prevalent in an
effort to make learning more efficient and effective
under the new learning environment. In line with this
development, FEU’s Education Technology (EduTech) unit
developed the Tamaraw Interactive Educational Service
(TIES), a web-based learning management system that
is intended to be the repository and platform of all the
e-learning resources of the University.

the CCP and were invited to the Cheonan World Folk
Dance Competition, South Korea, in October 2015. The
productions of the FEU Theater Guild brought in recordbreaking audiences not only in FEU Manila but also in
De La Salle University’s College of St. Benilde, where
they participated in the first Fringe Festival in Manila,
and in the University of the Philippines, where they
competed in Curtain Call and won in three categories.
In AY 2014–2015, FEU awarded through the PCC
financial assistance for service to about 181 members of
the five cultural groups.
Summary
Fiesta Folkloriada, December 16, 2014
Theater Guild produced and mounted Urbana at Felisa
as a highlight of the national conference on Fr. Modesto
de Castro, 2014 being the 150th anniversary of both the
proto-novel’s publication and its author’s passing. To
inaugurate the University’s recently restored Steinway
grand piano, the PCC staged three concerts, each of
which featured a topnotch U.S.-based Filipino pianist in
the persons of Hiyas Hila, Jose Artemio Panganiban, and
Carlos Ibay. The first two concerts were accompanied
by the Metro Manila Concert Orchestra with FEU
Outstanding Alumnus Josefino Toledo as conductor,
while the third had Cultural Center of the Philippines
(CCP) President Dr. Raul Sunico playing the role of the
orchestra from a second piano. The PCC also invited folk
dance groups from Estonia and Indonesia to perform in
FEU Manila as part of the Bayanihan National Folk Dance
Company’s annual Fiesta Folkloriada. The PCC’s other
activities included hosting a film series, a literary lecture,
and two fashion shows featuring the works of students
and alumni. For the third year, PCC also held the Summer
Arts Camp in the FEU Manila campus.
An important function of the PCC is that it oversees
five student cultural groups: the Bamboo Band, Chorale,
Dance Company, Drum and Bugle Corps, and Theater
Guild. In AY 2014–2015, these student groups brought
the following distinctions to FEU: The FEU Dance

In sum, Far Eastern University is among the top
schools in the country, being an autonomous university.
Specifically, this means that it offers an excellent college
experience in which high-quality curricular programs
buttressed by comprehensive academic support services
are complemented and enriched by a a wide variety of
extracurricular student-development activities. Perhaps
as a result, passing rates in professional licensure
examinations are generally rising.
Moreover, in the higher-education sector, FEU is taking
the lead in exploring the impacts of the college
experience on Filipino students through its multischool research initiative on learning outcomes and
the College Freshmen Survey, in particular. Likewise, the
FEU-URC has been given a leadership role in the U-Belt
Research Consortium. In addition, linkages and research
collaboration activities are increasing in number and
expanding in scope. And research culture among faculty
is taking hold.
On community extension and services, FEU’s tamaraw
advocacy is a perfect example of a university’s being a
resource for its host country. The project is of utmost
importance for both the nation and the preservation of
an endangered species—for the former because of the
Tamaraw’s place in the Filipino psyche and for the latter
because of the universal concern for Nature.
Similarly, the FEU Public Policy Center underscores FEU’s
being of service to the nation through a policy advocacy
on select themes.
Thus, the conclusion can only be: even ahead of the
strategy formulation exercises, FEU is already well poised
as a top university in the Philippines. The strategies can
only further clarify the metrics of FEU’s excellence as well
as make it rise higher in the rankings of universities.
FEU High School will provide affordable quality
education and develop both affective traits and cognitive
skills that prepare its students for college and for life. Its
curriculum will be student-centered, competency-laden,
and outcomes-based; its delivery methods technologyenabled, and its learning activities project-based. Great
store will also be placed on values formation. In other
words, it will be a senior high school that is uniquely FEU.
Note:
A Last Note: The FEU High School
Last year’s Annual Report contained the following
statement: “FEU is establishing a high school, not so
much to mitigate the financial impact of a drastically
reduced college population as to have a long-term stake
in developing post-junior high school students over a
period longer than the traditional four or five years of
college.”
At this writing, FEU High School, Inc., has submitted its
application papers to the Department of Education for a
permit to operate a senior high school. It is set to open its
doors to incoming Grade 11 students starting AY 2016–
2017 and will offer the Academic Tracks, which consists of
the following strands: Science, Technology, Engineering,
and Mathematics (STEM); Accountancy, Business, and
Management (ABM); Humanities and Social Sciences
(HUMSS); and the General Academic Strand (GAS).
While I arrived at this insight independently, it turns out that it is
not new to FEU. The founder Nicanor Reyes Sr. recognized it long
ago in the following address to students: “All that we can do to help
you is only half the process of training you. In the long run, the most
important factor in your … education will be how hard you yourselves
work for that education.”

Accomplishments, Achievements and Honors
The Institute of Accounts, Business, and Finance (IABF)
flourished in Academic Year 2014-2015. There was an
array of accomplishments, achievements, and honors in
all areas it has committed to prioritize.
In terms of faculty accomplishment, AY 2014-2015 was
a great time to celebrate. With faculty earning advanced
degrees and certifications (see faculty development
below for details), a number of recognitions were also
achieved. As part of its quest to be a force to reckon with
in the field of financial management education, one of
our faculty, Fatima Winniclare Jayme, was selected as
2014 FINEX-Deloitte Educator of the Year Awardee for the
National Capital Region.
The strong leadership that is innate among our faculty
members is also exemplified. A number of them were
elected as officials in professional organizations and
commissioned as members of various accrediting
bodies/agencies. Among them were:

The performance of the University in the 2014
Certified Public Accountant (CPA) board examination
was significantly higher than the national passing
percentage. In the 2014 October examination, the
national passing rate was 37.02% (4,123 passed out of
11,137) while FEU’s overall performance was 58.97%.
This was underscored by the performances of Kathleen
Pacencia who ranked 13th (88.57%) and Jed Mallare
who ranked 17th (88.00%). In the July 2014 CPA board
exam, a new set of board of examiners introduced
changes in the examination. This led to the lowest
national passing rate of 19.98% for the past 10 years
(1,107 passed out of 5,540), and resulted in FEU’s
overall performance of 16.67%.
IABF students also joined various contests and
continued to excel in these competitions. They brought
home honors and accolades that made the university
a force to reckon with in the local and international
accounting, business and finance arenas. The Tamaraws

Institute of Arts and Sciences
The Institute of Arts and Sciences (IAS) operated under
a new dean, Dr. Joel M. Chavez, in AY 2014-2015 as
Dean Myrna P. Quinto was promoted Vice President for
Academic Development. The new dean is a freshwater
biologist by training who has had a 20-year experience
in the education sector. Dr. Chavez was a faculty and
administrator in top universities in the country and
was program specialist in the Commission on Higher
Education working on policy and science development.
The plans and activities for the academic year were
already in place when Dr. Chavez took over and thus, the
transition in management in the institute was mostly
smooth. A status quo was observed in the institute
during the adjustment period but critical processes
and documents related to operation and budget were
improved on to tighten the institute’s efficiency and
compliance with required standards and expectations.
Based on the gaps observed and the directive towards
the FEU vision for 2020, the institute embarked on a
comprehensive planning to define its path. It is within
this context that the institute and its departments now
26

focus equitably on the three main functions as academic
units—instruction, research and extension.
Accomplishments, Achievements and Honors
AY 2014-15 was successful year for the Institute. It
earned 294 individual awards and honors for faculty,
student, and staff during the year; the breakdown per
department can be seen in Table 1.

Development Plans Implemented
Faculty Development
The development plans implemented in IAS ranged from
activities such as accreditation, ISO standards compliance,
opening of new programs, specialized lectures for faculty,
students and staff, training on instruction improvement for
faculty and staff, and equipment and materials acquisition.
Table 2 shows that the institute was able to implement 65
discrete plans in AY 2014-15.
The faculty development program in the university
serves as a motivation for faculty towards academic and
professional growth. The faculty development in IAS
included scholarships for PhD, participation in professional
conferences, training workshops and seminars, book
writing support, among others. To summarize the myriad
events that happened in faculty development, perhaps
the word “enculturation” can best describe the rationale
for the activities: a drive to excel in teaching, research and
extension.

Many of what was attained in the development plans in
IAS emanated from the previous planning done during
the term of Dr. Quinto. Future development should
build on these achievements. Part of the development
activities in the institute focused on the establishment
of linkages. These linkages were intended to strengthen
the instruction, research and extension functions of the
IAS academic units. Some important linkages formed
were:

The recognition of technology as an integral part of
the FEU education was reinforced by the development
of an Android application for students in the BA
Communication program. Further enhancements in the
instruction were the conversion to outcomes-based
education (OBE) syllabi, and the favor towards the
learner-centered approach.
Community Services/Outreach
In AY 2014-15, there was a total of 320 faculty members
in the institute. Some 134 of these are females and
186 males. A total of 196 had full-time appointment
and 124 were part-time faculty members. There are 40
doctoral degree holders and 280 with master’s degree or
equivalent. Among the doctoral degree holders, 21 are
females and 19 males.
As part of the trilogy of functions, the institute was
also involved in community service and outreach
activities. These activities involved the participation
of administrators, faculty, staff and students. In
collaboration with the Community and Extension
Services office, about 5000 individuals outside the FEU
community benefitted from these initiatives.
Student Services/Activities
The institute was also busy on student services and
activities. Some 74 distinct activities were implemented
by the departments (Table 4) that focused on
presentation of papers in conferences abroad and in the
country, academic quiz bees in various fields, and special
alternative classes such as disciplinal, personal, career
or leadership seminars, trainings and workshops.

The future direction of IAS was developed based on key
accomplishments in the past and the vision established
by the university for 2020. Starting AY 2015-16, the FEU
Institute of Arts and Sciences will re-focus on four key
themes to:
•
•
•
•
•
Clarify the administrative and development plans
Streamline the delivery of instruction
Rationalize the faculty complement
Establish a solid interdisciplinary research, and
Enhance the formation of linkages and extension
programs

Issues and Concerns
IAS Secretariat
Most of the departments in IAS are still identifying
specific niches, which should serve as the strong anchor
for the development initiatives within the coming
years. But there are departments that have faculty
complements and key achievements that show maturity,
and that should allow setting of precise tracks for
future endeavors. The major key themes are meant to
be broad. It was intended so because: 1) the efforts of
IAS should remain relevant to the changing needs of
the university stakeholders, the government, and the
society at large; and 2) IAS needs to establish the clear
impetus of the departments in their specific niches. In
terms of research, IAS has set its sights to participate
in more outside and competitive grant applications to
fund its research. This is so to showcase to peers in the
discipline the capabilities and talents of people in the
institute, as well as not overburden the university for
needed funds just so research can be conducted.
Notwithstanding the
accomplishments and
achievements attained,
IAS still has had a fair
share of issues and
concerns that affected
its performance;
operational efficiency
was the more strenuous
of these concerns. Many
were addressed when
encountered, and the
stop gap solutions
implemented maintained
operational integrity
in the institute. It is
within this difficult
situation though that the
institute embarked on
strengthening its internal
policy development.
Preliminary improvements done were to write down
important policies, dialogue with concerned offices and
individuals, and cascade new policies and other relevant
information down to stakeholders. However, a number of
these concerns are not just confined to IAS. It is aimed
that discussion with other FEU units will be done within
academic year 2015-16 to resolve issues.
Enrollment Data and Data on Graduation/Graduates
IAS was still the largest in terms of student population
for AY 2014-15. There was an average of 7,806 students
enrolled in the 27 programs offered in IAS in the bachelor’s,
master’s and doctoral programs. Illustrated in Figure 1
is the distribution of student enrollment in the different
departments with the data partitioned into sexes. Table
7, on the other hand, shows the details of enrollment
and graduation per program. Medical Technology has
the largest enrollment followed by Psychology and
Communication. On average, male to female ratio is 1:2.35.
Except for the Departments of Literature and Humanities,
and Math and Physics, females in general outnumber
males in the IAS programs.

In Table 7, six of the programs listed are for phase
out. The phasing out is due to conformance of the IAS
departments to new policies, standards and guidelines
issued by CHED for the different programs. A great
deal of the changes done was on nomenclature of the
programs. The replacement programs are already in
place, and the enrollment has been commendable.

Special Events
The 11 departments of IAS held special events that
were either the typical or atypical academic activities.
Table 8 shows the number of special events undertaken
by the departments. The typical activities were lectures,
seminars and workshops for various stakeholders
but these were attended by well-known scholars in
the fields. Some of these special lectures by visiting
academics from international and local universities
included Benito Tan, Joseph George Mallia, Phelim Yong
Voon Chen, Caroline Chua , Gemino Abad, Alfred Yuson,
F. Sionil Jose, Cristina Pantoja-Hidalgo, among others.
Perhaps among the atypical activities were the hosted
professional conferences, and the fairs and festivals
for the discipline. IAS departments hosted a total of
six national level conferences of different professional
organizations.

UP Ecotour Club’s Domestik Whiz 2015 competition held
at the University of the Philippines–Asian Institute of
Tourism.
Development Plans Implemented
Several activities were undertaken by ITHM in its
aim to improve curriculum and instruction. These
activities include the full adoption of the OutcomesBased Teaching and Learning (OBTL) curricula and
revision of syllabi for all Tourism Management and
Hotel and Restaurant Management courses; attendance
of faculty in the OBTL and test construction training
workshop; continuous collaboration with the university
in its initiatives for the ISA accreditation; TESDA NC2

like Hong Kong, China and Vietnam, and a hotel
exposure in Bellevue and Sofitel.
Tourism and HRM internships were also improved
through several partnerships locally with various travel
agencies, airlines, events companies, restaurants, hotels
and governmental agencies in Metro Manila; and
international partnerships in Malaysia, Thailand, and
USA (Work and Travel Program). Ocular visits to a couple
of five-star hotels, such as the Intercontinental Hotel
and Hyatt Hotel, for possible new internship sites of
students were also conducted to look into opportunities
for students’ internship. The institute also established
linkage with Vietnam’s FPT University, one of Vietnam’s
leading IT company.
In addition, a number of academic-related activities
were organized in celebration of FEU’s 87th Founding
Anniversary. The Events Management (EVENTS MGMT)
and Events and Conventional Management (EACMAN)
and Function, Banquet and Catering Services Procedure
(FBCSP) classes worked together to come up with
university-wide events such as the TAMVOWS II:
The Second Time Around, a mass wedding for FEU
maintenance and security personnel held at the FEU
Plaza on February 13, 2015; Banchetto 3: Philippine

faculty members who are a combination of experienced
industry practitioners and academicians. The HRM
Department had a total of 41 faculty members, five of
whom are MA degree holders, 40% have ongoing study
status, and 10% without master’s degree but with strong
industry experience. Likewise, the Tourism Management
Department had a total of 34 faculty members of which
10% are regular fulltime, 44% with master’s degrees,
47% with ongoing studies, and 9% are bachelor degree
holders but are experts in their field of Travel and
Tourism.

Continuous process improvement and physical
maintenance of the newly-built Café Alfredo, Wine
Sensory and Bar Rooms, Food and Banquet Hall, Culinary
and Travel laboratories. In future semesters, ITHM will
have these laboratories fully utilized by students and
faculty in accordance to the course requirements.
ITHM intends to incorporate community extensions
with every educational tour so as to foster sustainable
partnership with the community and agencies. We aim
for 20% of faculty members and students to actively
participate in community extension work.
Accreditation targets for ITHM include PACUCOA Level
1 Accreditation of HRM and Tourism Management
programs by First Semester 2015 and the THE-ICE
(International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and
Hospitality Education) by the end of May 2015.
As regards students, ITHM aims to have 100% on-time
resolution of student-related concerns; 10% increase in
participation of students in seminars, conferences and
leadership programs; a pool of students and coaches
for local and international competitions; and 100%
implementation and evaluation of tours, events and

Institute of Nursing
Accomplishments, Achievements and Honors
Two faculty members of the Institute of Nursing (IN)
were recipients of the University Faculty Award during
the 87th Founding Anniversary. These were Emy
Delgado and Joy Filoteo.
A major research initiative in the institute during the
2014-2015 academic year was the research study “Hand
Reflexology’s Effect on Level of Pain among Postpartum
Mothers” presented in local, national and international
colloquia by Reynante Dante Tan and was published in
the Philippine Journal of Nursing.
The institute continued to create opportunities for the
holistic development of its student in and outside the
classroom. It further refined their skills on leadership,
critical thinking and clinical judge judgment through
their participation in a number of student–centered
activities, such as local and international competitions,
quiz bees, sportfest and involvement in the IN student
council and other student organization. The continued
success of students is demonstrated through receipt

E A S T E R N
U N I V E R S I T Y
of awards and participation in local and international
conferences as poster and oral presenters.
An international student has earned a distinction for
the institute: Cynthia Oluchi Nworgu was named one
of the three Outstanding International Students by the
Philippine International Friendship and Understanding
Association, Inc.
In the May and November 2014 Nurse Licensure
Examinations, the institute saw continued improvement
with high passing rate of 88.39% and 84.11%,
respectively for first-time takers. Graduating students
are now required to pass the comprehensive exam and
mock board online with a score that has a predicted
probability of passing the NLEX. A total of 116 students
reached this level on the first and second attempt. The
remaining 13 have signed up for remedial classes.
Development Plans Implemented
A shift from competency-based curriculum to
outcomes-based curriculum was gradually introduced
and implemented in Academic Year 20114-2015. In
congruence with the implementation of OutcomesBased Education (OBE), innovative teaching strategies
are currently being utilized: Objective-Structured
Clinical Examination, Direct Observation of Procedural
Skills, Case-Based Discussion, Virtual Reality Simulators,
and Mini-Clinical Evaluation Exercises.
For the curriculum to be truly outcomes-based it
should thread through with institute’s mission and
vision. To fulfill this, a survey on graduate attributes
that contributed to their employability was conducted
among professional nurses who are currently employed
in various health care settings/facilities. Majority of the
respondents (73.97%) answered that being value driven,
and having team working skills, and commitment to
the profession are among their attributes that highly
contributed to their employability.
The grand case presentation was revived after being
shelved for some years .This aimed to evaluate how
far the sophomore, junior and senior students have
developed their knowledge in Nursing process, concepts
and skills in Nursing assessment and intervention, thus,
enhancing student’s competency towards clinical cases.
Book Launch of Patient-Focused Assessment: The Art and Science of
Clinical Data Gathering by Thom J. Mansen and Julieta Gabiola
Each faculty is required to create his/her teaching
portfolio, which reflects their teaching philosophy,
methods and approaches. It presents the syllabi,
assignments, exams and other materials that best
illustrate their teaching methods.
Faculty Development
There is an adequate evidence of development activities
that demonstrate relevance and currency in the field
of teaching and clinical skills. To maintain the faculty
academic qualifications, faculty members were engaged
in a variety of activities at the rate of one or more
per year. Such activities include: 1) participation in
university/institute-sponsored seminars and workshops;
2) orientation in their area of assignment; 3) serving
as an officer in a national professional associations;
4) involvement in various research conferences and 5)
participation in out-reach programs.
In 2014, various seminar-workshops were organized and
conducted to review, revisit and make further improvement
on the important components of the curriculum such
as Test Analysis, Nursing Care Process, Evidenced-Based
Nursing, and Drug Study. These activities were aimed to
expand and further improve the utilization of the said
components in anticipation of the curriculum shift from
competency-based to outcomes-based.

Four of the institute faculty members were also able
to present their study in national colloquia, namely:
Reynante Dante Tan, Joy Filoteo, Esther Dela Cruz, and
Josefina Florendo.
Community Services/Outreach
The institute was actively involved in various community
outreach programs to deeply promote and reintroduce
social obligations as individuals and nurses in society.
The activities in this regard can help in augmenting
professional growth among nurses as one renders
service to society irrespective of personal life and time.
An awarding ceremony capped the Reflexology and
Massage Therapy Training to recognize the participants
and effort of the BJMP inmates in the training. A
research study on the impact of the training was carried
out. The participants of the study were the inmates who
were released from incarceration and were recipients of
the training conducted.
The Skills Training Program for the core group of Gawad
Kalinga which started in December 2012 was completed
in November 2014. First aid kits and blood pressure
apparatus were distributed to the participants so that
they can fully render health service to the community.
A research on the impact evaluation of the core group
skills training is currently ongoing.
In August 2014, the institute, in coordination with its
Faculty Club and CES, initiated a project that caters to
the health concerns of the community at Gota De Leche.

Accomplishments
Development, Monitoring and Improvement
of Policies and Processes
The admissions page in the FEU website was
updated with the assistance of the Marketing and
Communications Office. This was done to improve the
availability of accurate information on requirements
and procedures on admission and enrollment in the
different degree programs. Admissions manual was
set to be reviewed and updated during AY2015-2016
incorporating the core competencies, updated policies
and procedures in accordance with the new examination
and enrollment system.
Student Recruitment
AFA implemented the school articulation program
nationwide. Articulation varied from room-to-room
campaigns, career talks, or even career fairs. AFA
identified the enrollment feeder areas in the different
regions and came up with strategies prior to the
visits. It was construed that Visayas and Mindanao
were untapped markets, thus visit to schools and
establishment of testing centers became the main
strategies for these areas. AFA, however, visited only
schools in Mindanao because of the positive response
from schools in the area. On the other hand, market
saturation became the strategy for provinces in Luzon
as well as the National Capital Region (NCR). Table 1 is
the 2-year performance on student recruitment in NCR 38%, Luzon - 23%, Visayas - 1%, and Mindanao - 0.30%.

This year, there was 12% increase in the number of
schools visited around the regional testing centers
(Table 2). There were additional cities and provinces
that were visited, such as Palawan, La Union, General
Santos City, Cagayan De Oro City, and Davao City. FEU
athletes who came from these provinces joined the
articulation team for pep talk to high school students.
They encouraged the students, using their native
language, to dream big and go the distance to reach
their goals. Room-to-room campaign and career talk in
general assemblies were also conducted. While there
was an increase in the number of schools visited in the
provinces, there was a 55% decline in the number of
schools visited in NCR and nearby provinces (Table 3).
The decrease was due to the struggle in the number
of manpower of AFA during the first half of the year
wherein a number of high schools held their career
orientations. But this was readily addressed with the
support from the Senior Vice President for Academic
Affairs, the different institutes, offices under Academic
Services and the Academic Development Office. There
was a 276% increase in participation by volunteer
faculty members and academic heads doing articulation.
There was also a 27% increase in delivery of marketing
materials to schools (Table 4). Schools were also invited
during the FEU events organized by the Teachers’
Academy (TA) and the Institute of Education in FEU,
which were intended for high school students, teachers
and principals. Two seminars were organized by TA,
namely: seminar on Educational Leadership held on
February 7, 2015 with Dr. Goh Chor Boon of National
Institute of Education in Singapore as the lecturer;
and the Emerging Pedagogies in Sciences on March
14, 2015 with Dr. Phelim Yong of Taylor’s University
Malaysia as the lecturer. A total of 261 faculty members
and principals from 88 public and private high schools
attended the seminars. Also, the Institute of Education
spearheaded the revival of the Dr. Nicanor Reyes
Challenge (DNRC) on February 18, 2015, which was
intended for graduating high school students. Some
222 students from 36 public and private schools joined
the 6 competitions on poster making, impromptu public
speaking, oral interpretative reading, OPM singing
contest, cooking challenge and general information
quiz bee. Chiang Kai Shek College, Ernesto Rondo High
School, Manila Science, Ramon Magsaysay, and Paco
Catholic won in various competitions. This DNRC will
become a yearly activity for high school students to
foster camaraderie and develop cultural awareness
among the young.

The strategy was two-pronged, i.e. market saturation
for Luzon considering its being the 2nd highest source
of students enrolling in FEU, and market penetration
in the Visayas and Mindanao due to low turnout from
these areas. To attain this, the following approaches
were implemented: increase the number of on-site
examinees in schools from NCR and nearby provinces;
add regional testing centers; and waive the FEU CAT fee
during university foundation week and events where
high schools students will participate. The number
of schools that availed of the on-site exam increased
from 2 to 6, which resulted in the increased number
of on-site exam takers by 171%. FEU CAT has been
administered traditionally in 10 regional testing centers.
This year, AFA added two more testing centers in Luzon
(Palawan and La Union) and three in Mindanao (Cagayan
De Oro City, Davao City, and General Santos City). With
the increased number of testing centers, regional exam
takers increased by 9%. Finally, about 700 applicants
enjoyed the waived FEU CAT fee last January 20-24,
2015 in celebration of the university foundation week.
This contributed to the 7% increase of exam takers
compared to that of last year as of February. Based on
Table 5, AFA achieved 69% of the target number of exam
takers as of April.

Administration of Admissions Test
The new K to 12-ready FEU College Admissions Test
(FEU CAT) was developed by consultant Dr. Carlo Magno,
and was implemented in June 2014 in the Manila and
Makati campuses. The new FEU CAT was administered
to all exam takers aiming to enroll in AY2015-2016. The
FEU CAT was administered as a manual examination for
the off-site areas, and online examination (developed
by FEU Institute of Technology–MIS) for the FEU Manila
and Makati campuses. The new test is valid only for one
year, unlike the old FEU CAT that had a validity of three
years. The new test is accepted only in FEU Manila and
Makati.

Admissions and Enrollment of Freshmen
and Other New Students
The enrollment of freshmen and transferees for AY20142015 took an average of 1 hour and 38 minutes. As per
Registrar’s office statistics last July 8, 2014, there was 8%
decrease in the number of enrolled students compared
to last year’s. The average conversion rate of passers
to the number of actual enrollment for the past three
years was 55%. It should be noted though that there
is a decreasing trend in the conversion trend. Thus, in
preparation for AY2015-2016 enrollment, AFA came up
with events such as the parents’ articulation and Make It
FEU event for all FEU CAT passers. Last January 25 and
February 22, 2015, parents’ articulation was organized
to inform the parents why FEU should be their school
of choice. Shown then were the highlights of the
different programs, and video interviews of successful
alumni. Question-and-answer was also done during the
parent’s articulation. On hand to answer were the AFA
Director, Admissions Section Head, Financial Assistance
Coordinator, and the Institute representatives. Also, the
Make It FEU event for passers was organized last April
8, 2015. This event gave the FEU CAT passers a glimpse
of their future in FEU. During this event, some of the
participants settled the downpayment prior to online
enrollment on April 13, 2015.

Financial Assistance
University scholarship grants are divided into 3
categories: merit, needs-based, and service. Merit
grants reward the academically excellent students. The
needs-based grants support the financially-challenged
but academically capable students. The service grants
support talented students who share their talents
and skills with the university. This year, 9% of the
total population was supported by various university
scholarship grants. This decreased by 2% compared
to the previous year because of increased benefits.
Majority of the grantees are enjoying merit grants
followed by service grants. Aside from the university
scholarship grants, 1% of the total population was
supported by external benefactors. Last July 2014,
the first event of AFA with external benefactors was
organized. The event was a recognition of the help of
the external benefactors in the realization of the dreams
of FEU students. Eleven officials from government
and private offices, such as the AFP, CHED, Megaword,
OWWA, SM Foundation and SYDP, as well as the 14
scholars with their families attended the event. AFA
aims to increase the number of scholars supported by
external benefactors on AY2015-2016. It is utmost for
all the scholars to embody the core values Fortitude,
Excellence, and Uprightness.
Issues, Concerns and Development Plans
AFA will review all the policies and process related to
its operations and release an updated admissions and
scholarship manual in AY2015-2016. AFA was not able
to release updated admissions manual during AY20142015 but was able to produce a scholarship manual in
the middle of the year. Notwithstanding, AFA updated
the admissions page in the university website to ensure
that all changes are communicated to its clientele.
With the coming of the K to 12, the number of enrollees
was foreseen to drop in AY2016-2017. Though
an expected downtrend, AFA will still continue to
strengthen its partnership with high school feeder
schools by inviting the students, teachers and principals
to various activities of the university. Moreover, school
articulation will still be continued. The 15 regional
testing centers will be decreased depending on
the number of exam takers. AFA aims to visit other
countries for articulation and establish testing centers
to hopefully augment the projected decline in the
number of enrollees of local students by increasing
the number of foreign students. Last year, 1% of the
freshmen were foreign students.
By June 2015, AFA will be using Netsuite system in the
application of FEU CAT, moving out of the paper and
pencil application. This should ensure better generation
of accurate data and reports on the exam takers and
passers. A new set of FEU CAT will be used for exam
takers for AY2016-2017. Efficient application procedures
in the testing centers will be also be made certain.
With regard to financial assistance, AFA aims to
increase the number of students supported by
external benefactors by signing more memorandum of
agreement (MOA) with other companies. Moreover, AFA
aims to update all the existing MOA which will indicate
one scholarship per student policy.

Office of the Registrar
The Office of the Registrar, headed by Grace Sipin,
remains committed to provide excellent service to its
customers and maintain efficient records management
in support of the University’s mission/vision.
Accomplishments, Achievements and Honors
The two-year project on records digitization has been
completed. This was initiated in February 2013 and
aimed to create a web-based database of all student
records. The database, called the Registrar Records
Management System (RRMS), has been designed and
user-tested.
The RRMS contains the scanned images of academic
credentials, which are stored in the Registrar’s Office.
It facilitates verification and issuance of records, and
saves the university on expense for record storage. It
contains about 1,849,669 records and 9,248,345 pages
of scanned documents.

Furthermore, the FEU Registrar was elected as President
of both the NCR School Registrars Association (NACSRA)
and the Federation of School Registrars Associations
(FOSRA). She took an active role in the preparation
and implementation of the NACSRA conference of
school registrars, assistant registrars, liaison officers
and admission officers, which was held on November
21, 2014 at the FEU Mini Auditorium.The theme of the
conference was “Preparing School Registrars for the
Challenges of ASEAN Integration and Globalization.” A
total of 356 participants from 163 registered memberschools of the Association attended the activity.
The office processed applications/requests for student
records and data, and other concerns. The number of
transactions/documents processed is summarized in the
table.
The Registrar’s Office also intensified its campaign
to encourage online application for student records.
This was done in order to decongest the volume of
applicants that visit the said office. A campaign poster
has been prepared for this initiative. The number of
online applications for this year increased by 45%
compared to last academic year.

Library Services
In the last three years (2011 - 2014), many
improvements took place in the University Library in
line with its aim of becoming a state-of-the-art learning
and research facility. Among these are: total renovation
of the University Library in April-July of 2013; the Library
was nominated and won the 2012 PAARL Outstanding
Academic/Research Library Award; the Library became
a proactive contributor to the University accreditations;
and the Library has become a preferred space for
select academic and cultural events and meetings of
the University. Aside from these, priority was given to
collection development, which included environmental
analysis, selection and acquisition, deselection and
collection evaluation resulting in an updated resources
responsive to the needs of the users of the Library.
Collection Development
To be able to provide an excellent support to the
teaching and learning process in the University, new
library resources were acquired for the academic year
2014-2015. This was achieved through the assistance
and collaborative efforts of the University’s deans,

Community Extension Services and NSTP
The Community Extension Services (CES) is one of the
line offices under Academic Services. It is in charge of
initiating and coordinating outreach and communitybased activities. These activities are meant to be part
of the service learning experience in the university not
just for students but for other stakeholders in the FEU
community, including administrators, faculty, staff and
alumni. The CES also administers the National Service
Training Program (NSTP), which engages students for
two years. The CES is currently headed by Dr. Marilou
Cao and the NSTP program is coordinated by Noel Bejo.
Accomplishments, Achievements and Honors
Around 50 individual programs and projects were either
conducted or coordinated by CES and NSTP Program.
Approximately 5,000 people outside the FEU community
benefited from the collective effort channeled through
the CES/NSTP.
Not counted among these beneficiaries are the FEU
administrators, staff, faculty and students whose lives
have been enriched by participating as volunteers
through the programs and projects implemented in AY
2014-15.
The CES/NSTP was able to accomplish major projects
in AY2014-15. Among this is the Brigada Eskwela which
was participated in by the FEU offices such as the HRD,
OVPAA, OPRES and FTS, and by volunteers across the
institutes and departments. Brigada Eskwela was held

Student Development
Accomplishments, Achievements and Honors
For the advancement of student achievement in
different fields, the Student Development was able
to guide students and provide moral and financial
assistance. Student leaders reaped national awards in
recognition of their academic excellence, leadership
achievement, and community involvement. These
achievements included awards from the Commission
on Higher Education and RFM Corporation’s Search
for the Ten Oustanding Students of the Philippines,
Youth Federation for World Peace and United Peace
Federation, Southeast Asia Mobile App Competition,
Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), Junior People
Management Association of the Philippines (JPMAP),
national debate tournaments, Young Men’s Christian
Association, and American Chamber of Commerce of
the Philippines, Inc. (AMCHAM) Business Leadership
Program. FEU students also participated in prestigious
leadership searches and mentorship programs after

organized by the Ayala Foundation, Aboitiz Foundation,
Asiawide Refreshments Corporation, Asian Institute of
Management, Butterfly Global Academy, Japan-East Asia
Network Exchange for Students and Youths (JENESYS),
and Go Negosyo’s BEST Program. An in-house leadership
search was also conducted to recognize
outstanding students. These awardees
are subsequently tracked for national
leadership competitions.
FEU student leaders were also elected
in national and regional student
organizations, which showed their
counterparts’ recognition of their
leadership competencies. Some of
these were: Karl Steven Maghirang
and Kiezelliah Ann Tuazon as national

common interest were carried out. Partner institutions
included the Hinge Inquirer, Yahoo! Philippines,
Philippine Center for Islamic Development, Visayan
Forum, iFight Movement, English Speaking Union
Philippines, Association for the International Exchange
of Students in Economics and Commerce (AIESEC), and
the Chinese Student Federation of the Philippines.
Community-Based Leadership,” the
immersion intended to recommit
them to the call for service-oriented
citizens. The student leaders also
learned two models of advocacy work
from Aurelio R. Montinola III, former
BPI president, who talked about
BPI Foundation’s corporate social
responsibility projects; and Sharmila
Parmanand, Visayan Forum’s policy
and advocacy director, who discussed
her organization’s anti-human
trafficking campaign. An on-campus
teambuilding activity facilitated by
alumni who were awarded as one of
the Ten Outstanding Students of the
Philippines-National Capital Region
capped the PITP. The community
immersion was an innovation of the teambuilding
activity, which is usually conducted as out-of-town and
in-resorts activity. This innovation gained excellent
rating from the participants.
As part of the social entrepreneurship program in
FEU, SDEV organized a talk on the entrepreneurship
experience of Joel Cruz, founder of the Aficionado
Germany Perfume. The Technopreneurship Caravan
was also held in partnership with RFM Corporation’s
Go Negosyo, the Tamaraw Volunteers, Institute of
Arts and Sciences Student Council (IASSC), and the
Development Plans Implemented
Student Development (SDEV) implemented leadership
training programs and student organization activities
that aimed to enhance the student leaders’ sense
of volunteerism. To jumpstart this thrust, SDEV
immersed the student leaders in a brief outreach
project in selected orphanages, public schools, and
nongovernment organizations during the annual
Planning, Integration, and Teambuilding Project (PITP).
Anchored on the theme “Volunteerism Reloaded:

Student Services/Activities
Seminars on enhancing the student leaders’ work
attitude, negotiation, and communication skills were
also conducted. Topics included the call-of-duty
narratives of officers from Icon hope Foundation and
Girl Scouts of the Philippines, personal branding in
leadership, human resources management trends, highimpact interview responses, disagreeing without being
disagreeable, fund-raising strategies, and intensive
workshop on effective communication skills.
Student leaders were exposed to off-campus
engagements, both local and international. They
learned principles and practices that complement their
classroom-based learning and through interaction
with their student counterparts. Through these
activities, FEU was represented by students in a media
congress; scholars’ leadership symposium in Cambodia;
conferences on biology education and research in
a changing planet in Malaysia, ASEAN competency,
nursing, sustainable quality life; in a moot court
competition; and in debate tournaments.
Student organizations carried out a total of 266 projects
for their constituents. The greatest number of projects
centered on topical discussions (18.8%), which are
discursive in approach and aligned with SDEV’s thrust
of developing the 4 Cs of the 21st century leader (e.g.,
critical thinking and problem-solving, collaboration,
communication, creativity and innovation), followed by
student off-campus engagements, assemblies, routine
projects, and needs-based volunteer works.

Community Services/Outreach
The impact of the PITP was evident in this year’s
projects. Thirty two out of 59 accredited organizations
implemented collaborative community projects such
as: 1) literacy and livelihood programs in barangays
near FEU, in Hospicio de San Jose, and in selected
public schools; 2) cleanup and repair of classrooms
in public schools; 3) fund-raising campaigns for the
Ortho-Pedagocial Institute and an HIV hub; 4) medical

partnership with Haribon Foundation International; 7)
arts worskhops; 8) book drives; 9) blood-letting; and 10)
a cultural awareness project. The community projects
were complemented by capability-building learning
sessions under the Circles of Leadership Influence
Program (CLIP), which provided a deeper understanding
of social issues and advocacies through the invited
highly credentialed speakers. Topics ranged from
understanding the Bangsamoro and prospects for peace,
to inclusive approaches in living with persons with
disability, fight against impunity, disaster management
and governance, heritage conservation, management of
arts and culture, and sociological analysis of istambays
(youth inactivity).

review of the mission-vision of all student organizations
to align them with FEU’s aspiration to be among the
top five best universities in the Philippines by 2020.
SDEV will partner with institutions that will help set
up an Entrepreneurs Club and an entrepreneurship
program. Sponsorship policy will be designed to provide
funding options for student organization projects.
Student-led community projects will be strengthened
in coordination with the Community Extension Services.
Online archival database of post-event reports will be
proposed to improve operational efficiency. Increase of
students’ attendance in projects organized by student
organizations will be among SDEV’s primary targets.

policies, procedures and forms were reviewed and
appropriate revisions were effected; new forms and
procedures were registered with ISO
Developed SD internal policy on community service
hours as alternative penalty for offenses
SD also reviewed and enhanced the Student Code of
Conduct. This was done in coordination with the Student
Development office and FEUCSO representatives to
reflect current situations.
Student Services/Activities
SD tasks, as regard student services, range from onsite monitoring of students’ behavior to office and
desk activities. Monitoring students’ conduct in the
campus was accomplished through regular roving of the
Discipline Officers. On the other hand, desk activities
were mostly centered on attending to student cases.
There were 612 reported cases involving major offenses
and each was accorded due process. There were 274
cases in the first semester and 338 in the second
semester. Attending to student cases entailed taking
statements from students; holding investigations
and parent conferences; resolving cases by imposing
just penalties, reporting cases to the institutes for
information; implementing sanctions on erring students;
and monitoring the institute’s implementation of SD’s
sanctions. All these tasks were done in coordination
with the Guidance and Counseling, the Health Services,
and, at times, with the institutes.
The strict implementation of the university uniform
policy, from July 25, 2014 until April 8, 2015, resulted in
1,049 cases of students being suspended. These were
mainly multiple uniform-related offenses wherein 626
students were apprehended in the first semester and
423 students in the second semester.
On the management of students’ desk, SD attended to
the Lost and Found section, maintained the SD Blotter
and acted on concerns raised therein. SD also acted
on requests for Uniform Exemption, replacement of
IDs, and student/ third party complaints (not involving
violation of the Student Code of Conduct). In addition,
it accommodated students’ desk transactions such as
1,020 clearances, 1,912 community service inquiries,
2,259 applications for certificate of good moral
character, 65 applications for temporary uniform
exemption, and 887 application for replacement of
lost/ defective ID. SD also handled and turned over
confiscated items to the institutes (IAS, IARFA and ITHM)
and to the FTS for proper disposal. SD, moreover, acted
on the requests for CCTV viewing.
On student discipline records management, the
following were accomplished: 1) maintained SD
Case Records; 2) managed the database of students’
violations thru 100% utilization of technology-based
services using the SD module. All (100%) of the major
offenses committed by the students, including multiple
uniform-related offenses, were encoded in the SD
module; 3) blocked/ unblocked students per requests
of Institutes and offices in FEU; and 4) requests for
clearances and good moral character were all promptly
acted upon, and released the following office day
On clearance of transfer students, a total of 919
applicant-transferees from other schools were
interviewed for the first semester AY 2014-2015. The
919 transferees interviewed eventually enrolled as
follows: 157 (17%) in IABF, 301 (33%) in IAS, 143 (16%)
in IARFA, 9 (1%) in IN, 38 (4%) in IE, and 271 (29%)
in ITHM. On the other hand, interviewed were 263
applicant-transferees for the second semester AY20142015. The 263 transferees interviewed enrolled as
follows: 68 (16%) in IABF, 111 (42%) in IAS, 9 (3%) in
IE and 97 (37%) in ITHM. SD conducted background
checking of students when requested by the institutes.

On the preparation of management reports, SD was able
to ensure timely submission of reports to management
as well as responses on queries from the institutes and
offices relative to student’s records mainly for evaluation
of students under SRP, scholarship and Latin honors.
SD’s quality feedback survey also reflected excellent
rating results. It shows that customers were satisfied
with its efficient and effective service.

President’s Committee on Culture
Executive Summary
The President’s Committee on Culture (PCC) presented
its productions to over 24,000 people and generated
no less than Php4 million worth of media mileage
for FEU. In addition to stellar productions on campus,
cultural groups performed in festivals, competitions
and invitational engagements further expanding
their reach, sharing their talents and representing
FEU. Linkages with embassies, local and international
cultural organizations, schools, corporations and internal
departments and offices enhanced the cultural season
in FEU Manila. The European Union in the Philippines
increased its financial support of Musica FEUropa, which
saw a rise in the number of competing choirs from
around the country. Colonial, the dance performance of
Alvin Tolentino from Canada, ended its Philippine tour
in FEU. Hiyas Hila, Jose Artemio Panganiban, and Carlos
Ibay, all top caliber pianists based in the US, performed
in a sub-series featuring the newly refurbished Steinway
grand piano. The Metro Manila Concert Orchestra
accompanied two of the pianists while Dr. Raul Sunico
assisted the third. The first Marching Band Festival
was one of several cultural events held as part of the
University’s Founding Anniversary celebrations. The

of the PCC not just in the FEU Auditorium but in venues
such as the FEU Chapel, FEU Diliman, and the College
of St. Benilde. Though the FEU Theater Guild (FTG)
began charging for tickets to their standing-room only
productions, the PCC offered the rest of the season
for free. Beyond the FEU community, audiences came
from around the country, if not the world, not just for
performances but also for campus tours.
The annual Summer Arts Camp was held for the third
time in the FEU Manila campus. Beneficiaries of the

lectures, among others, that were held on campus. The
PCC cultural groups are composed of students, thus,
these engagements and performances are activities
mainly by the students.
Through the PCC as well, the University awarded tuition
scholarships to an average of 181 cultural group
members each semester. Ten of them graduated with
Latin honors.

Alumni Relations and Placement Services
The Alumni Relations and Placement Services
(ARPS) is a relatively new office under the Academic
Services group. In its second year of operation under
Director Marcon Espino, ARPS has had significant
accomplishments in priority areas targeting office
core processes, namely: information dissemination,
database management, customer engagement, activity
implementation, and report generation.
Various platforms were created and utilized to inform
and to update the alumni community and industry
partners. Some of these were:
Accomplishments, Achievements, and Honors
•
In 2013, the ARPS team designed, structured, and
institutionalized programs and services to respond
to the needs of its clientele, the FEU alumni and
its industry partners. It is ARPS’ mandate to provide
opportunities for the alumni community for it to be
actively involved in various university-based and
community-based undertakings, and to strategically link
various companies and connect them with the FEU job
seekers for work placement.
•
•
•
Regular posting/uploading of articles on the FEU
website (alumni page), official ARPS Facebook
pages for alumni relations (with 8,800 “likes” for
alumni activities) and placement services (3,500
“likes” on job opportunities), and the official FEU
Facebook page now with nearly 182,000 “likes.”
Continuous utilization of the mail blast facility (MS
Outlook) to send out news and information to over
25,000 alumni recipients. Messages were also sent
via FEU G-mail account (for all FEU e-mail users)
Launching of the maiden issue of the Green and
Gold: Online Alumni Newsletter in December, 2014
in partnership with the Corporate Affairs office. The
second issue (first quarter of 2015) was released in
March, 2015.
Creation of the FEU-ARPS LinkedIn as another
potent platform for disseminating information and
connecting with the alumni community.
ARPS also delved into database management by
regularly updating two major directories, the contact
90
F A R
E A S T E R N
U N I V E R S I T Y
information of alumni and contact information of
industry partners. This was done primarily by collecting
contact details and other important information from
different sources like FEU alumni card application form,
alumni walk-in registration sheet, referral system, and
the newly-installed FEU ResumeLink. Furthermore, ARPS
partnered with Jobs180.com for the ‘ResumeLink’ for
FEU alumni, graduating and working students for work
placement with potential employers. ResumeLink also
provides data/reports on graduates’ employment status.
Customer engagement was also a big achievement
in ARPS. The FEU Alumni Foundation, Inc. (FEU-AFI)
welcomed seven new members for the vacancies in
the Board of Trustees. Institute of Education (IE) alumni
have formed their core group and will take the lead in
reviving the IE Alumni Association. The FEU Tourism and
Hotel and Restaurant Management Alumni Association
was formed and officers were elected. For the alumni
card application, a total of 2,534 new applications
were processed; there was an increase of 68.93% from
the 1,500 target; card renewal reached 164. True to
its commitment of adding value to the alumni card,
ARPS partnered with companies for discounts and
other privileges for the cardholders. These benefits are
posted on the website and shared via social media sites.
In terms of the academe-industry linkages for work
placement, an increase of 49 new partner-companies
was achieved. In total, FEU has 64 partner companies
classified under accommodation and food service (4),
administrative and support activities (24), education
(3), financial and insurance (9), human health and
social work (3), information and communication (4),
manufacturing (6), public administrative and defense (1),
real estate (5), and wholesale and retail trade (5).
ARPS also produced relevant reports, such as the: FEU
alumni employment information (based on alumni
card application in AY 2013-2014), Scholar-Graduates’
employment information (based on alumni card
application in AY 2013-2014), Placement programs and
services, company recruitment feedback, classification
of FEU industry partners (based on signed MOAs; AY
2012-2013, 2013-2014), and documents and exhibits for
PACUCOA accreditation and Institutional Sustainability
Assessment (ISA)
Last academic year, ARPS received awards, donations,

Accomplishments, Achievements, and Honors
UAAP Season 77 saw the return of the FEU Men’s
Basketball Team to the UAAP Finals. After losing in
the Final 4, last season to De La Salle University, the
Tamaraws turned things around by beating DLSU in the
Final 4 courtesy of a Mac Belo three-point shot. In the
finals, the UAAP attendance records was set anew when
more than 25,000 fans watched Games 2 and 3 of the
FEU and NU matches at the Araneta Coliseum. Although
the Tamaraws came up short, the athletics program’s
objective of being a source of inspiration and pride for
the FEU community was achieved.
No other university has won all three football titles in
one season. But the FEU Football Program has, for two
straight seasons, won the men’s, women’s and juniors
UAAP championships. In Season 76 and 77, our football
program dominated all three divisions of UAAP football.
This twice-in-a-row feat shows our excellence in the
beautiful game of football.
Woman Chess International Master
Janelle May Frayna was adjudged
the UAAP’s Athlete of the Year for
Season 77. Frayna won the MVP
award as she led the FEU Women’s
Chess Team to the UAAP Title.
She also competed in various
international jousts, including
the Olympiad. Frayna is only one
GM norm short of becoming the
Philippines first female Grand
Master.

The FEU teams won a total of five UAAP championships
for Season 77. These are Men’s Football, Women’s
Football, Juniors Football, Women’s Chess, and Men’s
Track and Field. This is one championship short of
the six titles we aimed for in our quality objectives
for 2014-2015. We also garnered four 1st runner-up
awards, namely, in Men’s Basketball, Women’s Basketball,
Women’s Track and Field and Juniors Chess. On the
other hand, four 2nd runner-up awards were achieved:
Women’s Badminton, Women’s Table Tennis, Juniors
Taekwondo, and Girls Fencing. We had a total of 199

FTS Team successfully managed the construction of the
new Chilled Water Plant at the roof deck of Technology
Building. The facility provides energy-efficient and
centralized air conditioning for all buildings on
campus. Additional CCTV cameras for both security and
operational requirements were also installed.
The Data Center was relocated to the second floor
of Annex Building from the ground floor of the
Administration Building. Because of this, flooding is no
longer a concern and the continuity of the Data Center’s
operation is assured.

Development Plans Implemented
ITS participated in the transfer of 18 computer labs
from the Nursing Building, and the setup of two new
interactive labs at the Main Building. The interactive
labs allow an exciting new teaching format to be
pioneered at FEU starting 2015.
The FEU Data Center was also transferred from the
1st floor of Administration Building to the 2nd floor
of the Annex Building. With the transfer, the campus
backbone network was reconfigured and five new
16-core backbone cables were added to improve data
throughput. With flooding no longer a danger, the Data
Center is now a more secure launch pad for traditional
website and online services, as well as new service
offerings that rely on stable connections to cloud
resources. FEU started with its first cloud platform
from IBM Softlayer in 2014, which was used to process
payment streams from bank partners and an online
payment gateway. Preparations are ongoing for a
Netsuite self-service student center in 2015.

Student Services/Activities
Service to students continued through enrollment and
pre-registration support. ITS also assisted in the annual
student elections, wherein multi-party choices are
now allowed and elections are supervised by students
themselves. ITS also reissued the warnings against
credit card fraud in infographic format. This has resulted
in zero reported incidence in 2015.

Quality Management Office
The Quality Management Office (QMO) was established
to develop, implement, maintain, and continuously
improve the Quality Management System (QMS) of Far
Eastern University. It aims to assist the University in
developing processes that conform to international
quality standards, in nurturing a service-oriented
community, in providing quality educational services,
in ensuring less complaints from students, parents, and
other stakeholders, and in committing to continuous
improvement to attain quality. QMO further assists the
different University offices in overcoming challenges in
the implementation of the QMS. Most importantly, it
aims to achieve and maintain ISO 9001 certification of
the QMS of Far Eastern University.
Fiscal Year 2014-2105 was a very challenging for the
QMO for two reasons: it had to ensure renewal of the
ISO 9001:2008 certification of FEU Manila Campus;
and, it had to guarantee the initial ISO 9001:2008
certification of FEU Makati Campus.
An organization whose quality management system
(QMS) complies with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008
standard is granted certification valid for three years.
120
F A R
E A S T E R N
U N I V E R S I T Y
However, every year within the validity of the certificate,
the organization must undergo a surveillance audit to
ensure compliance with requirements of the standard.
After three years or one cycle, the organization must
submit itself to a repeat audit, and if the organization
demonstrates that the requirements of the standard
have been continuously met, a new certification is
granted valid for three years and the cycle continuous.
Far Eastern University has completed nine years, or three
cycles, already and went through a repeat audit in 2014.
In the repeat audit, FEU was able to prove continued
compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008
standard. The repeat audit was as challenging as the
first for the reason that FEU must also be able to exhibit
improvements in its QMS.
Accomplishments, Achievements and Honors
For an organization like FEU, which is dynamic and
evolving, maintaining a QMS becomes very complex. To
reduce complexity in maintaining the QMS, the QMO
completed the following projects/programs:
1. Revision of Mandatory Procedures: Mandatory
procedures, as required by ISO 9001:2008, were
revised to adopt changes in the FEU community,
and ensure clear understanding for proper
compliance with the ISO standard.
2. Control of Documents and Records: One of the
requirements of the ISO standard is the control
of documents and records. Over the years, QMO
has constantly been assisting different University
offices in the maintenance of their respective
documents and records to ensure compliance with
ISO standards.
3. Restructuring of the Quality Management Office:
ISO Representatives were appointed as Deputy
Quality Management Representative (D-QMR)
to empower the representatives of the different
Offices, Departments, and Institutes, and make
them more responsible in their respective area.
Internal Quality Auditors were appointed as Internal
Quality Audit Team (IQuAT) to make the name of
the group pristine, thereby, giving the members
authority to conduct audit. These groups underwent
series of training to make them more effective
in the discharge of their respective duties and
responsibilities for the betterment of the QMS.
4. Creation of Quality Circles: Quality Circles,
composed of rank-and-file and supervisor from
different offices, were created to be responsible for
identifying, analyzing, and recommending solutions
to problems related to processes and services
adopted by the University.
5. Internal Quality Audit: One of the requirements of
ISO standard is to conduct Internal Quality Audit
(IQA). For the Fiscal Year 2014-2015, IQA happened
in two instances: the complete IQA (12-15 August
2014); and, the IQA Follow-Up (09-10 October
2014). Furthermore, the Internal Quality Audit
was brought to a higher level this fiscal year. The
audit process is more structured to ensure proper
implementation of policies, guidelines, procedures,
manuals, and forms being used throughout the
University. The report generation is more thorough.
After the audit, we gathered the IQuAT members to
an off-campus venue to brain-storm on the findings
and generate a more credible report.
Far Eastern University went through the ISO 9001:2008
3rd Repeat Audit (External Audit) for FEU Manila
Campus, and Special Audit for FEU Makati Campus,
which were held on 15,-17 October 2014, and conducted
by TUV SUD, Philippines. The result of the audit and
comparison between the previous external audit

In February 2015, Far Eastern University received the
following certifications for Manila Campus and Makati
Campus.
Manila Campus: Certificate for compliance with ISO
9001:2008 with the scope: “Provision and Development
of Tertiary and Post-Graduate Educational Degree and
Non-Degree Courses, in accordance with CHED Policies,
Standards and Guidelines, PACUCOA, and PAASCU
Makati Campus: Certificate for compliance with ISO
9001:2008 with the scope: “Provision and Development

Campus Ministry
Accomplishments, Achievements and Honors
The Campus Ministry is a collaborative partnership of
the Archdiocese of Manila with FEU to promote holistic
human development among the students, faculty, and
University officials.
The Ministry’s programs and activities are classified

together for the celebrations of life and growth. The
fervor of devotion in their faith is manifested and
expressed as persons united in God’s name.
2. FEU as a Journeying Faith-Community. It is vital for
every community to realize the importance not only
of the destination but the faithful journey that takes
us there. A number of activities of the Campus Ministry
were especially catered towards this purpose: Bible
Sharing, Bible Study, Weekly Salt (Biblical reminders
in the form of small cards sent out after every Bible
Study sessions), Recollection (Half-day reflection

Angel C. Palanca Peace Program Foundation, Inc.
In AY 2014-2015, ACP³FI’s focused efforts in expanding
the scope of peace education. ACP³FI initiated a working
relationship with various schools in the University Belt,
namely: FEATI University, Arellano University, Manuel L.
Quezon University, and National University. These institutions
positively responded to ACP³FI’s call for collaboration and
shall serve as collaborators for future peace lectures, forums,
and activities.
The major activities of ACP³FI were:
An initial in-house seminar-workshop on peace held on May 2223, 2014 was facilitated by ACP³FI core members. It oriented the
50 University Belt school representatives including the faculty
from FEU Manila, FEU Diliman, FEU Cavite, and FEU Makati on
how they can become peace advocates based on Toh Swee-Hin’s
framework.
Enriching and Deepening seminar series, was conducted for
Peace TAYO, ACP³FI’s student arm organization. The seminar
series were held on June 20, July 10, 21, 29, August 12, 29

A Walk for Peace event was held to celebrate the
International Peace Day on September 21, 2014. This was led
by ACP³FI in coordination with FEU NSTP. About a thousand
students, teachers, and University officials participated in the
activity. The route that the ACP3FI peace advocates traversed
was very significant for this effort. From the FEU Quadrangle,
the advocates walked to Nicanor Reyes St., headed towards C.
M. Recto Avenue, turned right at Loyola St., made a right turn
at Bilibid Viejo a street densely inhabited Muslim community
that surrounded the Golden Mosque. The peace advocates
walked towards Quiapo Church along Palanca St., which is the
thoroughfare named after the patriarch of the Palanca clan,
industrialist-philanthropist Don Carlos Palanca Sr. This street is
flanked by the Quiapo Church and the Quinta Wet Market. The
peace advocates then proceeded to the historic Sta. Cruz Church
and Escolta, walked to Dasmariñas St., and finally the Binondo
Church, also known as the Minor Basilica of St. Lorenzo Ruiz.
The traditional 9-day Advent Novena masses were scheduled
from December 8 (Monday) until December 18.
The Peace Essay Writing Competition was also held with
the theme “Peace: The Practice of Living with Justice and
Compassion.” The awarding ceremony was held on October
1, 2014. For the first time, entries were accepted from
ACP³FI’s partner schools, which made the pool of contestants
more diverse. In the past, only undergraduate tertiary
students of the FEU System participated.
An orientation lecture was conducted by ACP3FI on Universal
Human Rights for the female inmates of the Manila City Jail,
in cooperation with the FEU Community Services & NSTP
and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology. This was

rights. FEU faculty and human rights educator-advocate,
Antonio Villasor was the guest lecturer. The inmates who
were receptive to the discussion actively participated in
the forum. A Christmas gift-giving event was also held in
conjunction with the lecture. A peace education seminar, “I (Symbol of Heart): Communion,
Communication and Commission” was held on October 24, 2014.
This was for the 80 faculty members of the Dona Teodora Alonzo
High School (DTAHS), a public high school located in Sta. Cruz,
Manila. The seminar was jointly organized with the Knights of
Columbus and DTAHS Principal Mrs. Ma. Teresa Custodio as part of
