President Ermita further commits to ‘Education that Works’
Ensuing the 123rd Founding Anniversary last August 1, NU President/CEO, Dr. Renato Carlos Ermita Jr. shared the university’s accomplishments and plans in his annual President’s Report last Friday, August 4.
In his speech, he acknowledged the NU community for helping the institution achieve all its accomplishments including an Overall 3 QS Stars Rating, an ISO 9001:2015 Certification and the recent Great Place to Work recognition; more so, for producing board passers and topnotchers in different fields.
As the institution continues to grow, the President also encouraged the employees to help each other bring out new ideas and best practices to further develop NU’s programs. “Let us not be satisfied with mediocre performance. Let’s push ourselves. That’s the only way we can develop NU.”
Meanwhile in the Q&A portion of the program, President RJ addressed issues and concerns pertaining to classroom shortage, mental health awareness and environmental consciousness. He also assured National U’s commitment to its stakeholders and to ‘Education that Works’ by making sure that the university continues to adapt its programs to support its alumni through external linkages.
“The key really is that we get to expose our students to the working environment. It will mean that we will have a close relationship with the industry; therefore, closing the perceived gaps between academics and industry.”
