In his message during the opening program, Dr. dela Rosa underscored the need to provide a ‘borderless education’ that will recognize the skills and competencies of the students in other countries.
“We have to be creative, we have to be curious. Faculty members, not only students, must have that sense of curiosity and creativity— (kung) paano maituturo (sa mga estudyante), paano mapupukaw ang kaisipan ng mga bata para taluntunin ang daan ng higit pang kaalaman na dapat nilang mapag aralan,” he emphasized.
He also said that as accreditors, their task is to help, not to discriminate. (GSRubio/PR and Information Services)
