CTU top management launched the Official Website on Wednesday, April 20th, at the Roco Hall.
Dr. Rosein A. Ancheta Jr., university president (who took office in 2015), together with Dr. Ledesma R. Layon, vice president for administration and finance and Dr. Victor D. Villaganas, vice president for academic affairs and linkages, performed the traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The university has finally etched web presence as nine satellite campuses are now interconnected via Internet Interconnectivity Project worth 12 million pesos as stipulated in the BOR Resolution No.16, series of 2015.
Channeling some 37,000 students of CTU system to one web portal makes the university on a par with other institutions competing for web presence in today’s technologically advanced climate.
Dr. Ancheta anticipates cooperation from administrators of non-official sites representing CTU that have already existed for years as this could lead to a more unified system whereby policies and other matters are carefully and officially disseminated.
Shutting down of such online networks is a concern raised by the president to be immediately acted upon by the University Publication director .
Efforts Paid Off
Members of the publication team from different campuses received certificates in honor of their commitment to the project evidenced by their participation in a series of meetings since February this year.
Campus directors present from Cebu City, Carmen, Daanbaantayan, Argao, Tuburan, and Malabuyoc (Extension) witnessed what their designated personnel have come up with to provide satellite campuses avenues for showcasing the accomplishments that benefit the respective communities .
Dr. Victor D. Villaganas also shared his sentiment on the essence of connectivity across the system as this could preserve the bulk of information that precisely dictates the academics in their research undertakings, being one of the thrusts of the university.
With Dr. Ancheta’s vision to bring CTU to the fore of globalization, the Office of Computer, Information and Communication Technology and the University Publication Office collaborate to restore the determination to become a major part in today’s digital world . (UPO)
