Share Tweet The ASEAN University Network Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) Group granted certification and recognition to four bachelor’s programs in the University. UST’s Pharmacy, Medical Technology, Elementary Education and Secondary Education programs were granted recognition until 2022. AUN-QA assesses the academic performance of its members based on the structure of their curriculum, its quality in teaching and facilities used. The four new accredited programs will join AUN-QA-certified programs in the University Accountancy, Biology, Chemistry, and Psychology. The University has been an associate member of the organization since January 2016. Other members in the country include the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University and the De La Salle University. AUN was founded in November 1995, wherein 30 universities across the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations, which are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, are involved. Membership allows the University to join AUN-QA’s exchange programs and initiatives with partner organizations like the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and the European Union.

(AAI) elected former student affairs director Evelyn Songco as its new president while resigned president Henry Tenedero took over the chairmanship of the association. Tenedero stepped down from his post last Jan. 23 after the UST AAI drew flak for conferring Medical Technology alumna and Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Esther Margaux “Mocha” Uson an award on government service (READ: Alumni Association prex resigns, Uson’s award not revoked). “As the president of the association, I’m taking full responsibility for whatever this has created. Well, of course, we have committees assigned for this, it is incumbent of me to accept responsibility,” Tenedero told TomasinoWeb in a phone call following his resignation. Songco served as the director of the Office for Student Affairs from 1990 to 2006 and 2010 to 2016. She was also the director of the Office of Alumni Relations from 2007 to 2010. Jerenato Alfante, Maria Elena Manansala, Teresita Meer, Nelson Tan Afuan, and Maureen Pickering were also elected as vice president, secretary, treasurer, auditor, and public relations officer of the UST AAI executive board, respectively.
