Dr. Virginia D. Akiate, Commission on Higher Education Executive Director (CHED) Director- NCR, lauded the Internationalization program initiated by Far Eastern University (FEU) in a lecture forum, “Strengthening the ASEAN Integration of NCR Higher Education Institutions” held last week.
Dr. Myrna Quinto, Vice President for Academic Development (ADO) warmly welcomed the new NCR director to the FEU campus together with Joeven Castro, Assistant Vice President for Academic Services and the academic managers representing all the Institutes.
Dr. Akiate encouraged universities and colleges to focus on initiatives that can contribute to developing an educational policy framework that can meet the needs of the ASEAN integration.
“The competencies of the 21st century must also be realized and promoted from basic education to higher educational institutions by continuously fine-tuning the Philippine Qualifications Framework with the DepEd, TESDA, and PRC working hand in hand,” Dr. Akiate emphasized.
Dr. Arnel D. Bravo, FEU Director for the Center for Teaching and Learning stated that more initiatives are being prepared by his office to enhance such Internationalization.
