The House committee on higher and technical education will be closely working with the Association of Local Colleges and Universities–Commission on Accreditation (ALCUCOA) to foster a sustainable agile and inclusive education model and equip students for tomorrow’s real world challenges.
Rep. Mark Go, chairman of the House committee on higher and technical education, claimed that in the practice of any profession, the true value of their coordinated work is measured by the positive change that people make for the nation and in the lives of others.
Go recently graced the ALCUCOA 16th National Conference which is an annual undertaking by the organization to expand the horizons for local colleges and universities from the different parts of the country on important global and national trends as well as practices of governance and sustainability all towards building institutions of quality molding responsible citizens of the nation.
“I look forward to the strides ALCUCOA will make in this 16th National conference and I also hope that we will be able to work together more closely at the House committee on higher and technical education,” Go stressed.
ALCUCOA is composed of 40 local colleges and universities of the Philippines while ALCU is working closely with both chambers of Congress in legislations that benefit existing local colleges and universities.
The primary thrust of ALCU is to improve the quality of instruction, research, and extension of its member schools and to provide value public tertiary education.
The association has created in the later part of 2003 the Commission on Accreditation, Inc., which is working closely with the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines, Inc. (AACCUP).
