Proofs of Excellence

Autonomous/Deregulated Status

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) recognizes the university's contribution in the growth and prominence of tertiary education in the Asia-Pacific. As a result, of the 1,200 Private Higher Education Institutions under the supervision of the CHED, the university is one of the first 30 to have been granted autonomous and deregulated status based on three criteria: (1) established as Center of Excellence or Center of Development and or private higher education institutions with FAAP Level III Accredited programs; (2) outstanding overall performance of graduates in the licensure examinations under the Professional Regulation Commission; and (3) a long tradition of integrity and untarnished reputation.

Automation of Records

The full automation in the administration of records promptly facilitates the requests and releases of documents, student diplomas, and official records for employment and other purposes. The automation system also allows for the release of these documents in time for the graduation rites.

Salary Rate

The salary scheme for all employees is competitive with existing market rates in the community and with other accredited educational institutions.

Public Service Excellence Program (PSEP)

The university has implemented a Public Service Excellence Program (PSEP) in all its offices.

Hi-tech facility

Instruction is kept at pace with modern technology through the optimum utilization of the Lesage AV Hall, the Multimedia Center, the newly constructed Skills Laboratory and Simulation Room, and the Engineering Lecture Room. These facilities are furnished with some of the following modern equipment, including but not limited to, digital projectors, electronic board, DVD/VCD/VHS players, and other AV equipment. Judicious use of these facilities is maximized by conducting in-house trainings on their utilization and encouraging the faculty to use such equipment.

Laboratory facility

Laboratories are an essential part of the curricular program of an institution. They provide opportunities to gain working knowledge of theories and principles learned in the classroom. These facilities include not just the space but also the supplies, equipment and features designed to help attain course objectives. Science lecture rooms have adequate space and provisions for appropriate demonstrations and exhibits. Laboratory rooms are also adequately equipped to meet the needs of the science courses.

Computer laboratories are equipped to adequately support computer instruction in a 1:1 ratio between computer units and students. These facilities are Internet-ready to maximize the potential of worldwide access to information.

Special considerations are also given to certain courses which require specific equipment and supplies. For Commerce or Business Administration, the typing room has adequate office machines, filing and indexing equipment, and office forms. For Teacher Education, the Home Economics has appropriate teaching materials and aid, especially those required for practice or student teaching. Along with these are the food laboratory, clothing and textile laboratory, and a practice house. For language courses, the speech laboratory is equipped with materials needed by students to acquire aural and lingual skills.

Commendable Achievements

The College of Education is cited as one of the twenty high performing schools in Licensure Exam for Teachers, out of the 696 teacher education institutions in the Philippines.

The active participation of some students in co-curricular activities is given recognition by various agencies. In the past three years, the university has produced an international awardee in Boy Scout, a regional awardee of The Ten Outstanding Youth of Philippines and a presentor/reader in the national conference of poets.

Religious and Values Education courses, which serve as one of the distinguishing features of the university's instruction program, develop distinctive qualities among the students and graduates.

In the aid of instruction, new books in English, Literature, and Filipino were produced by teachers. The Philosophy textbooks authored by a professor has been used and circulated nationwide.

Continuous Expansion and Growth

Due to the growing population year after year, physical expansion has been made. From the original one building at CPG Avenue, the school has now nine buildings. The following significant physical expansions should be noted:

  • Janssen Heights Campus: a 7.5 hectares property where the High School Department (Janssen Building), Education and Engineering Colleges (Bates Building); and the Grades School department are located;
  • Additional classrooms were made available making the total 116
  • The newly constructed St. Freinademetz Building occupied by the College of Nursing at the Janssen Heights Campus; and
  • New sport facilities like the oval, basketball and tennis courts

A Holynamian should know that:

  • college and graduate students have access to materials such as professional, scholarly, or scientific articles for their reports, term papers, and research studies in the Library collection and through the Internet;
  • the three air-conditioned computer laboratories located in the Lesage Building (main campus) have an adequate number of computer units which enable the students to work individually;
  • the Physics laboratory has been transferred next to the Chemistry laboratory to allow easy access to some laboratory equipment needed in the lecture demonstrations;
  • the Biology lecture and laboratory rooms are now in the new St. Freinademetz Building where the rooms are more conducive to scientific work;
  • there is an expansion of the Chemistry dispensing area which allows bigger space for more acquired laboratory equipment and supplies, with separate shelves for chemicals that are health hazards; and
  • the new Research Laboratory located in the fourth floor which is now ready for research study conducted by faculty and students

In the first year of Fr. Florante S. Camacho, SVD's term, only 20% of the college faculty had the master's or doctor's degree. Now, the percentage has gone up to 56.38%
