MALAYBALAY CITY (IPS/19 October) Bukidnon State University has submitted anew three of its academic programs for accreditation by the AACCUP or the Accrediting Agency for Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines.
AACCUP will conduct the visit on October 20-21, 2019 for the Level IV Phase II of the Master of Arts in Education and Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and for the Level III Phase II of the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Education Major in Instructional Systems Design programs.
Dr. Joy M. Mirasol, BukSU concurrent Vice President for Academic Affairs and Vice President for Research and Extension and International Affairs said AACCUP Level IV Phase II is the highest level of accreditation. It requires the highest level evaluation results in five areas: Research, Teaching and Learning, Community Service and Impact (for our extension), international linkages and Consortia and well-developed planning process.
The AACCUP team is composed of experienced accreditors led by Dr. Evelyn C. Cruzada, former president of Leyte Normal University as AACCUP Coordinator. She will be joined by Dr. Anita G. David from Pampanga State Agricultural University (PSAU) and Dr. Arnel B. Millesca from Partido State University (ParSU).
Dr. Mirasol announced the focus of the upcoming AACCUP visit on October 16 during the VPAAʾs airing of the BukSU Updates, the top-management’s weekly radio program at the universityʾs DXBU 104.5 FM.
The MAED program specializations are English Language Teaching, Educational Administration, Guidance and Counseling, General Science and Mathematics Education/Mathematics Teaching.
Dr. Mirasol added that if the university succeeds in this accreditation process, the programs will become full-pledged AACCUP accredited programs.
ʺIt will be considered as an excellent academic program comparable with other leading programs around the world, ʺ she added.
The OIC-VPAA added that although AACCUP is voluntary, BukSU has submitted its programs for accreditation, in line with higher education requisites for its continuous development, especially for the students.
“We subject our university for accreditation for SUC Leveling. If we pass this accreditation, we are at par with other leading programs. That is part of internationalization, “Dr. Mirasol said.
She said graduates of the accredited programs have an edge over other graduates.
For the BukSU College of Educationʾs PhD in Instructional Systems Design to pass Level III Phase II, it must excel in at least four areas: extension, faculty development, licensure examination and consortia/linkages/library as mandated in the research and instruction of the graduate level.
Accreditors will view video presentations and ask questions from local task forces of the three programs to validate and evaluate BukSU claims.
Dr. Mirasol said submitting for AACCUP Level IV and Level IIII accreditation poses another challenge for the university. But she quipped that the BukSU community will eventually achieve this goal. She also asked the BukSU Community to pray for the success of the endeavor.
She noted that if BukSU is successful in its current endeavors, it will venture into submitting to Institutional Sustainability Assessment (ISA).
AACCUP is a non- profit and non-stock organization in the Philippines started in 1987. There are 111 institutional members. (Ms. Analiza D. Marquez/Information and Publication Service)
